The Day We Made Harry Styles Take the Subway : This here Throwback comes with a fun story, about what the Hell @harrystyles of #OneDirection was doing, casually leaving a NYC Subway station. During this time, no paparazzi really followed #1D , so after months and years, we built quite a strong relationship with the boys, Harry in particular. We would get some shots, and then let them explore the city as relatively unbothered as possible considering the level of fame they were on. All 5 members of the band spent the day filming an episode of #SesameStreet in Queens , and afterwards we chose to try and get some shots of Harry. He pulled over on the side of the road and asked us what type of shot we would like, just so that he could get some alone time “with his boys at the pub 😉” . I said lets do something very “NY” like a taxi cab or something, but at 1am there were no cabs around. So we took the next best option, the 14th Street Subway. He walked down the steps, and right back up and really sold it. That’s when we knew his acting career would really take off #tbt 📸: @diggzy #247papstv #DiggzyPhotos #HarryStyles #Directioners #NYC #Harry

At this point, Harry's photographer took him to New York's iconic 14th Street Subway, and noted that he really "sold it" when walking up and down the stairs into the subway.
"That’s when we knew his acting career would really take off," finished Miles.
