Grant Harveyas Roy Aronson
Grant Harvey is one of the most promising young actors to emerge from the west coast. In addition to Jordan Ross' Thumper, which The Orchard bought following the world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, Harvey co-stars in Juvenile, the directorial debut of Bradley Buecker, one of Ryan Murphy's chief collaborators. Co-starring and written by Blake Jenner, Juvenile is an intense story of troubled young men in search of redemption.
Harvey is currently at work on The Crossing, a new series for ABC that revolves around refugees from a war-torn country who arrive to seek asylum in an American town. But the country these people are from is America, and the war they are fleeing from hasn't happened yet. Harvey plays Roy, a young, by-the-book agent charged with helping look after the refugees.
Born in Hawthorne, Nevada, 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 guest starring roles on Masters of Sex, Supernatural, Luther, CSI, NCIS and Criminal Minds. On film, Harvey appeared in IFC's Save the Date with Lizzy Caplin and Alison Brie.
