In a reflective interview with Vestal, Harrison reflects on his career and personal journey with an honesty that’s as refreshing as it is enlightening.

This personal connection extends to his acting, where Harrison seeks to find common ground with his characters, making them relatable to all. “The actor’s job is to come in and find the things we can relate to as human beings…to find the things that make them something we all as human beings can relate to,” he shares.

This approach helps Harrison overcome the imposter syndrome, a feeling he believes many people struggle with and need to overcome to embrace their path in life fully.
