What We Do In The Shadows was recently renewed for its sixth season, Harley Quinn debuted its third season, Esquire magazine came calling and actor Harvey Guillén has found himself at the center of the pop culture world in the past three weeks. His character in What We Do In The Shadows, Guillermo de la Cruz, recently came out to his family in tandem with Guillen sharing the details of his personal story with the world.

Luckily, Popverse's Ashley V. Robinson caught up with Harley Quinn's Nightwing Harvey Guillén at Emerald City Comic Con.

“It was in line with the idea that Guillermo was having his personal experience coming out and I wanted to tell my personal experience coming out as a queer person,” Guillen tells Popverse about his Esquire editorial which exploded to popularity across social media, “And I actually wrote that together with my sister.”

Here is our full 11-minute interview with Harvey Guillen:
