In this new interview with Vulture, Harvey talks about Guillermo’s growing confidence, his sexuality, and his relationship with Nandor.
On representation and Guillermo’s sexuality:
It’s important to feel that you’re represented and feel that you’re cheering for a character that isn’t the victim, that their queer story line doesn’t define how tragic the outcome of their life is. Because we’ve seen that for so long in media, in the way that queer people are portrayed, and it’s very black-and-white. You’re either fabulous and the best friend and over-the-top, or you’re like, “Oh, he came out and then, tragically, they kill him.” It’s been so black-and-white for so long. That’s not the world we live in, and that’s definitely not the lifestyle and life that are led by our queer brothers and sisters.
On costumes and Guillermo’s growing confidence:
[...] confidence never hurt anybody. For so long, Guillermo didn’t feel confident in his own skin. The backstory that I give to him for my own purposes is that he was probably bullied in school, he was picked on, he was plus-size, he was Latinx, he was all these things that were usually strikes against you as told by society, and he literally was trying to change that. And then sometimes you have to realize that the strikes that you’re being told are against you are actually your strength, and your strength is what’s shining through. I think he’s coming into his own knowing, “These are my strengths and they’re badass.”
On Guillermo and Nandor:
I think everyone’s cheering for something to happen, whether that’s romantic or [having] some truth be told — what is their dynamic? And what is the bond that they have? I’m very blessed to have a counterpart like Kayvan, where we’re both so comfortable in the characters and Kayvan’s such a giving actor. We’re making a comedy, but at the end of the day, their story line is what grounds the humanity, because it’s a split 50-50 between someone who’s immortal and no longer is worried about time, and someone for whom the clock is ticking, and needs to either make a choice to be immortal himself, or to make a choice and live a life that doesn’t include this world.

Yet again, Tumblr has dragged me into another emotional investment. Who knew this time it would be gay vampires?
(Comments [a quick rant] and ID below)
I'm honestly amazed at the quality?? of this show??? Like, it looked cute from all the gifsets that kept taking over my feed but man. I didn't expect this. Like, all the characters are so multi-dimensional, morally complicated, and they have good diversity that fits really well. And finally! Finally immortal beings from a far back era that are accurately not perfectly fitting into the stupid cis heteronormative norms we very unfortunately have today. Like, why would they be? But also Guillermo? Queer, fat, Latino, but also fully capable, emotionally diverse, and really interesting?? A legend and an icon. Had to draw him first, absolute fav
Also as a side note, didn't really expect to enjoy the show at first due to its more mature-rated humor. But apparently, I'm not the only sex-repulsed ace to be pleasantly surprised that it was actually hilarious. Kudos to the creators for finding such a great balance of over-the-top humor to the point where it was super enjoyable but also tears your heart into pieces at times. Can't wait for more heartbreak in the season finale

A digital portrait of Guillermo from the FX series 'What We Do in the Shadows'. The composition is based on a screenshot from the show featuring the character half torso up looking up at something offscreen. The style is semi-realistic with a painted texture. The character is wearing round glasses, a white button-up shirt with a blue vest, and a black sash style bandolier carrying several wooden stakes. The colors are tinted green and blue from the underground dungeon-like environment the character is in. His expression is relatively calm and neutral as he looks up, but the Rembrandt lighting makes for a very dramatic look

I’m just waiting for Nandor and Guillermo to have a “sweep me off my feet” romance, and it’s stressing me out every moment that I don’t get to have Nandor and Guillermo making out onscreen. You can take this whatever direction you want, whether it’s to confirm my rampant shipping, or just share what it’s been like to watch these two characters follow similar trajectories, but in their very different experiences as a vampire and as a human. 
I think everyone’s cheering for something to happen, whether that’s romantic or [having] some truth be told — what is their dynamic? And what is the bond that they have? I’m very blessed to have a counterpart like Kayvan, where we’re both so comfortable in the characters and Kayvan’s such a giving actor. We’re making a comedy, but at the end of the day, their story line is what grounds the humanity, because it’s a split 50-50 between someone who’s immortal and no longer is worried about time, and someone for whom the clock is ticking, and needs to either make a choice to be immortal himself, or to make a choice and live a life that doesn’t include this world.
It’s really a tough situation to be in, and it’s a fork in the road. Even when I’m reading the scripts, it feels very, “Oh my God, what’s gonna happen?” Because it’s a slow burn with them. And I think people are like, “No, do something! Either be together or not be together, or say something!” Or is one of you not into it? Or maybe it’s not even love like that? Maybe it’s a love between two males, and we normalize two males having affection for each other without making it sexualized? That could be a possibility. It’s just, what is it? I think everyone’s just eager to know, like, “Tell us what it is!”
When I watch the show, I pick up on Guillermo being queer-coded, but I’m also queer, so maybe I just am looking for it everywhere all the time. 
It’s important to feel that you’re represented and feel that you’re cheering for a character that isn’t the victim, that their queer story line doesn’t define how tragic the outcome of their life is. Because we’ve seen that for so long in media, in the way that queer people are portrayed, and it’s very black-and-white. You’re either fabulous and the best friend and over-the-top, or you’re like, “Oh, he came out and then, tragically, they kill him.” It’s been so black-and-white for so long. That’s not the world we live in, and that’s definitely not the lifestyle and life that are led by our queer brothers and sisters.
I’ve always said, everyone in the show, the characters are queer, but the vampires, they have nothing to lose. They could chop your heart out or bite you or snap your neck. There’s no fear. The difference with Guillermo is he doesn’t talk about sexuality. He has this fear that’s been placed on him by society, this fear that’s been placed on him maybe by his culture, his upbringing. There’s fear that we all overcome to be our authentic selves, and that’s why it’s so freeing when that opportunity happens.

There's something extremely cute and personal about Kayvan analizing Nandor's pov. I think it's what changed my mind about how serious he show can be.
