Mini Bio (1)
GRANT HARVEY is one of the most promising young actors to emerge out of Los Angeles. In addition to Jordan Ross and Cary Fukunaga's THUMPER which The Orchard bought following the world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, Harvey co-stars in BILLY BOY, the directorial debut of Bradley Buecker, one of Ryan Murphy's chief collaborators. Co-starring and written by Blake Jenner, BILLY BOY is an intense story of troubled young men in search of redemption. Melissa Benoist also stars.
Harvey is at work on the 4th season of TNT's "Animal Kingdom," as a regular within the show's new 1970's storyline, playing Colin, a damaged Vietnam veteran suffering from PTSD who has a knack for robbing banks. He co-stars opposite Leila George, who plays a young Ellen Barkin in the matriarchal role of Smurf. "Animal Kingdom" is executive produced by John Wells and is based on the 2010 film by David Michod.
Born in Hawthorne, NV, Harvey grew up running his family's pizza parlor alongside his parents and brother Brian. He moved to Los Angeles after studying journalism for a few years at the University of Nevada, slept on couches and took several part-time jobs before landing his first acting gig on the ABC Family series, "The Secret Life of The American Teenager," starring Shailene Woodley. Fittingly, he portrayed Grant Volberg, a pizza delivery boy.
Harvey's television credits also include Dan Fogelman's "The Neighbors" and ABC's sci-fi drama, "The Crossing," as well as guest starring roles on "Masters of Sex," "Shooter," "Supernatural," "Luther," "CSI," "CSI: NY," CSI: Cyber," "Bones," "NCIS" and "Criminal Minds," among others. On film, Harvey appeared in IFC's SAVE THE DATE with Lizzy Caplin and Alison Brie and will soon be seen in "Lost Transmissions," alongside Simon Pegg and Juno Temple.
