Earlier this week we reported that One Direction were allegedly planning a hiatus starting in March 2016, which meant they wouldn't tour their upcoming fifth full-length album, their first without Zayn Malik. It was later confirmed by Niall Horan that 1D will take a "well earned break" at some point in the future, but disbandment has yet to be determined.

It's all sparked loads of conversation, namely, what would happen to the guys if they were to split? The Sun suggests that Harry Styles will go onto a solo career, even claiming a Sony deal is in the works. According to E!, it's acting that the heartthrob is indeed after.

The publication quotes an unnamed source:

"Harry is being offered acting stuff, but he hasn't accepted anything yet. He is not openly looking for stuff either but is open to offers. ... If he does expand into that field he wants to make sure it is the right role."

Do you think it's true? The only real acting experience Harry Styles has came courtesy of the tween Nickelodeon program iCarly, where he played himself three years ago. Styles was basically a toddler; watch the appearance over here. After that, stroll down memory lane with our quiz: Is This a One Direction or 5 Seconds of Summer Lyric?
