Michael Harney Visits Seacrest Studios At CHOC

Recap written by Seacrest Studios Intern, Hannah Brown

Michael Harney, known for his roles on hit television shows such as NYPD Blue, Deadwood, Orange is the New Black, and his most recent series True Detective on HBO, came to visit patients and families at Seacrest Studios at CHOC Children’s.

Michael spoke about how he began acting by performing live theater shows and loved the craft so much he eventually opened his own theater workshop. His love for acting was discovered in college when he decided to take a class for fun. When asked about his favorite part of acting, Michael said that it was being able to become someone else for a while.

Michael did not specify on which type of acting he was most fond of, stating that they were all very different from one another, but that he has the most experience working on television shows. He has been in over 60 shows and 80 plays along with a number of movies; some in just one episode and others as recurring rolls.

Thank you to Michael Harney for brightening the days of our patients and families here at Seacrest Studios at CHOC Children’s!
