It feels as though about ten million years have passed since Anna Todd first announced that her infamous Harry Styles fan fic After would be making its way over to Hollywood. Ahh, back then things were so different. Harry had long hair. One Direction were still actually a band. We were so young, so naive.
But over the past couple of months, things seem to have really kicked into gear for the After movie when it comes to casting, and now there's a hot new favourite contender for the actor set to play Harry-inspired Hardin.
LOOK, this is Daniel Sharman and he's fit beyond fit.
If you're a Teen Wolf fan then you might already recognise Daniel and his killer cheekbones. He plays Isaac on the show, as well as Kaleb in The Vampire Diaries' spin off, The Originals.
Thanks to Daniel looking pretty much EXACTLY how Hardin is described in the book (just imagine him with a few additional tattoos and piercings), he's been a firm favourite with fans for absolutely ages now, and is a big part of loads of perfect After fan castings that are shared across Twitter and Tumblr.
Daniel also seems to have become pretty good pals with Anna Todd too, but things got waaaay more interesting recently after a video was posted by the movie's producer and screenwriter Susan McMartin.
Chatting to fans about the latest updates, she said that she hopes they'll soon be making the big announcement that Daniel IS playing Hardin in the film.
So errr, can we just go ahead and assume that that's kind of unofficial official confirmation then?
What do you reckon to that, then? Could Daniel be your Hardin? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape, and then check out the bonus Harry Styles vid below.
