Harris was chose by Backstage as one of 2014's "Backstage 30" list of "actors on the verge of breaking out"


(click photo for full article)

"For the Backstage 30 - our second annual list of 30 actors on the verge of career breakthroughs - we strive for objectivity. We ask casting directors, talent reps, and studio and network executives to recommend actors who are on their radars but not on the public's. Then we factor in social-media scores and rank the top 30 actors."

JUNCTION is now available on DVD at Amazon and to rent on Redbox

"Yet the show stealer of this fab four is perhaps Harris Doran. He has some pretty great lines, and in lesser hands they’d plunk, and possibly derail the storyline. Yet, his acting choices are so un-telegraphed, at the end, you have nothing to say but wow." - Emily Blunt, Blunt Review

"Neal Bledsoe and Harris Doran are particularly good as Donald and Spot. These are the two who lose control the most in the film and they are so believable and the two of them are really quite terrifying in their characters." - Nicki Newton-Plater, Movie Critical
