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.
