Early life

Harvey was born in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire,[1] the son of Andrea (née Foster) and Gordon Harvey, an engineer. He attended Sir William Ramsay School in Hazlemere, High Wycombe and in 1998 enrolled at JPA School of Drama and Dance, after which he began auditioning.


His first professional role was in a commercial advertising the Nintendo 64.[2] His first regular television role was in ITV1's short-lived soap opera Night and Day, in which he played Tom Brake. Other regular roles were Ralph Henshaw in Bedtime in 2002 (alongside Alun Armstrong), Russell in CITV's Girls in Love (2003–05) and Nathan Boothe in four series of ITV1's Where the Heart Is. He played the lead in BBC One's docudrama Dealing with Disasters (about London Nail Bomber David Copeland).

He has acted in three films, My Brother Tom (2001), Son of Rambow (2007) and the short 96 Ways to Say I Love You (2014). He is due to appear in Metanoia, a biopic of R. D. Laing, alongside a cast including David Tennant, Elisabeth Moss, David Bamber and Michael Gambon, in 2016.

His most recent roles to date are The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot,[3] part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of Doctor Who, on 23rd November 2013 and episodes of Doctors and Casualty in November 2014.
