See all Saboteurs

Harry Harris

Sabotaging since 3 Mar 2012

Harry Harris is a tea-drinking, guitar-playing, Herzog-loving, Arsenal-supporting average sized man. He was born in the middle of Wales and so grew up without any real knowledge of flat whites, sushi and conversation, yet has learnt fast since moving to the big smoke. He graduated from King’s College London with a degree in Film & American Studies, which qualifies him to be that bloke down the pub telling you exactly why Avatar was shit. If you disagree you can barrage him with insults at @hharrisfilm..
