3. He’s Part Of The LGBTQ+ Community

Still, Harvey has been very open about the fact that he identifies as queer. He told Remezcla, “If anything, what I do is just to inspire that next gordito, Mexican, queer kid who may be seeing stuff on-screen and be like, ‘Whoa, if he can do it…’ That’s right! You can do it too, mijo.”

There are plenty of actors who are completely comfortable only playing certain types of roles, but that isn’t what Harvey has ever envisioned for his career. While talking to Remezcla he said, “I try to do things that are a little different, like playing a superhero–something that I would never have thought I would play because the traditional standards of Hollywood wouldn’t give a guy who’s short and stout a role like that to portray.”

8. He Got The Opportunity To Audition For What We Do In The Shadows By Accident

Sometimes life really is about being in the right place at the right time and this is something that Harvey knows well. In fact, simply being at a party is what got him the audition for What We Do in the Shadows. While talking to the Chicago Tribune Harvey said, “I was at a party and I knew everybody except for one girl, her name was Yvonne, and the next day after the party I got a text from an unknown number and it was her and she said, ‘Hey, I just met you last night. I think you’re so funny and I think you should audition for my fiancé’s new show.”
