Richard Harmon for Issue 12

6 March 2019
"I think they’re the most fun to play and my face lends itself to, you know, wanting to be punched - a lot. That’s just the kind of face I have; thank you mum and dad for giving me this. I like doing it, ‘cause I try to be nice in my life, but then when you give me an outlet to be this psychopathic, mad person, that’s amazing. I learned to have a lot of fun with it. Now on ‘The 100’ I’m not so bad, I’m just kind of sarcastic. He’s an asshole for sure, but he’s got a decent set of morals on him."
I’ve been watching Canadian actor Richard Harmon’s work for years, and I don’t believe he is talked about enough. So here it is; let’s talk about him. I always wondered what it was like to continously be cast in roles as the bad guy. Is it his face that is to blame, or simply that he does it so well? How does it impact the soul to keep having to spend borrowed time within the minds of mean guys? Do you ever get lost in that journey? And what about when you take a bad guy and actually make them quite likeable? In our latest print issue you finally get answers to these curiosities, plus a further insight into Richard's world.
Most recently known for his role as John Murphy in TV series ‘The 100’, already in its fourth season, this actor has a pretty impressive list of performances. I promised myself before his interview that I would watch “everything he’d ever been in”, a task I miserably failed as, his filmography is incredibly long. I did admit this defeat, and it was ok. Making pals with talented Canadian photographer Alana Paterson, I invited her to capture Richard in his Canadian surroundings. Together with stylist Mila Franovic they brought out the playful and honest side of the talented actor. Across a colourful 8-page editorial spread in our new Spring Summer issue, “Young Hearts”, the visuals bring you in just as much as his honest conversation does. Following the theme of this issue, we wanted to know what was on Richard’s mind and where his passions lie. Talking about his mother as an angel walking this planet, his face and that love is always worth it, it's easy to get hooked into his humorous and down to earth approach.
Make sure to get yourself a copy the latest issue beyond this brief teaser to see all the pretty pictures and take in his engaging story.
