”The acting thing is so intimate and personal,” Harris said, ”that if we’re not working together, it’s real hard to share what we’re doing. I mean we both know what we’re doing, but you can’t really talk about your day very well. When you’re working together, though, there’s so much that is shared, so much unspoken thought and emotion that goes into the work, that it really draws you closer.”
Harris’s career continued to skyrocket through the ’80s. After starring as John Glenn in The Right Stuff, Harris became an incredibly sought after actor in Hollywood — Stepmom, A Beautiful Mind, The Firm, Apollo 13, the list goes on and on. He’s been nominated for four Academy Awards and most recently has starred in the HBO series, Westworld, for three seasons. Harris told the LA Times that he never gets sick of working with his wife, who he’s starred in nine films with over the years, an addition to multiple stage productions.
“No, I love it. We were together 24/7 when we were in New York…We really enjoy being with each other especially when we’re working together. I mean we were much more intimate during that time than we are at home in a way because at home you’re doing your thing, and in New York we were really just in each other’s pocket in a really cool way.”
