Who is randy harrison dating now
But I love this play, so funny, sweet, and touching, about a well-off married gay couple in Sag Harbor.
They thought we were the characters, but now it’s maybe been a long enough time and I’ve aged enough. “I never had any real bad stalkers but I do get scared when people get your home address and it’s on the Internet.I was out way before I did the show and never thought I’d be interviewed or on TV.I remember a Showtime publicist saying, ‘You don’t have to do this’ and thinking, ‘Why would I want to go back in the closet now?During a club set, Gretchen came up with the title, turned to Nancy and said, ‘I got it.We’re gonna do it like a woman just got a new act and is showing it to her manager during a sound check before the big night.’ It just came to her between songs, and then they kept on singing.’ So excited to be doing it with a great cast and the rehearsals are so mellow and fun.” Originally from New Hampshire and Georgia, Harrison started acting in community theater when he was six, was schooled in Ohio and, after a toe-dabble in Los Angeles, is now a firmly based New Yorker.
“Queer as Folk” happened shortly after he moved here at 22: “I was freelancing with an agent and was doing a showcase when I auditioned for it on tape, as most of it was being cast in LA.

Five years down the line, though, you’re like, ‘Are you fucking serious? ’ I was happy to do it, but I will never do a show with that kind of sexual content again, done with that.” Harrison has a partner but wasn’t into talking about him “because I talked about my relationships in the past and got attacked.
Every once in a while people pay to do these events where we all do meet-and-greets with fans, so we see each other once a year doing that.
