Who is Harry Slattery?
Harry Slattery was born in the USA in 1999 – his exact date of birth remains unknown, but his zodiac sign is believed to be Taurus, and he holds American nationality. He’s an actor with only two credits to his name so far – he’s perhaps known best for being the son of the famous American actor and film director John M. Slattery Jr., and the American actress Talia Balsam.
Early life and education
Harry was raised an only child in Los Angeles, California by his parents; he spent a lot of time being taken care of by a babysitter, mostly because of his parents’ careers.
Harry became interested in acting at a very early age, as his father John occasionally took him along when shooting for his movies and TV series.
Harry was later a member of his high school’s drama club, and appeared in plays performed both at the school and a local theatre, but mostly played supporting characters, as he wasn’t a highly skilled actor.
He matriculated in 2017, and because Harry hasn’t spoken of his further education, it’s widely believed that he hasn’t attended college.
Career as an actor
Harry played the supporting character Piñata Boy in the hit 2006 romantic comedy movie “Shortbus”, written and directed by John Cameron Mitchell, and which starred Sook-Yin Lee, Peter Stickles and PJ DeBoy.

It follows the members of a famous band from the ‘90s who have reunited in the 2020s; the series has won one of the 39 awards for which it has been nominated, including a Primetime Emmy nomination.
Love life and girlfriend
Harry is highly secretive when it comes to his love life, and because he hasn’t mentioned the girls or boys whom he has perhaps been with, there are various rumors circulating the internet concerning his sexual orientation, and his current relationship status.
Some of his father’s fans believe that Harry is gay, and that this is why he’s keeping his love life away from the media’s attention.
The boy has apparently been seen attending a party in Los Angeles with his boyfriend, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Harry commented on these rumors.
There are also some who think that he’s today in a relationship with a non-celebrity American girl, but this hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of December 2021, Harry seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Harry’s main hobby is photography, and many pictures taken by him can be seen uploaded onto his Instagram account. He’s quite active on the network, and has uploaded over 400 pictures, while he’s today followed by close to 2,000 people.
He’s a huge lover of animals, and is fascinated by goats and their cliff-climbing abilities.
Harry likes to travel, and has apparently been to various US states and European countries; when travelling, he prefers to visit natural locations rather than to stay in overcrowded cities.
Late at night, he enjoys watching movies starring his favorite actor and actress, Jim Carrey and Amanda Seyfried, such as “Bruce Almighty”, “The Number 23” and “Dear John”.
Age, height and net worth
Harry’s age is 22. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, his height is 5ft 8ins (1.7m) and he weighs around 140lbs (65kgs).
