“Oh god. Oh god, oh god. It’s just so embarrassing, my taste in music, I rarely reveal it,” the Stranger Things actor revealed in the interview. “My sort of college years were the early ’90s. So that’s really where music really became very important, was like sitting around in the dorm room, you know, jamming out to Counting Crows and Stone Temple Pilots.”
Harbour only had one answer because of the influence: “‘Mr. Jones’ by Counting Crows I’m sure would bring me back. Bring me back to college!”
The actor, who plays Jim Hopper on the hit Netflix sci-fi series, also revealed how he evolved for his season 4 narrative, which finds the dependable Indiana sheriff imprisoned in Russia. “There’s certainly a component that is exercise-based,” he said. “And there’s also another component which is starvation-based. But on top of that, long cardio was very good. Not only was it sort of good for losing weight, but it also just was really good for my anxiety.”
And part of that uneasiness is undoubtedly due to the scenarios Harbour has found himself in as Hopper throughout the last four seasons, as the actor revealed, “I tell ya, Hopper’s a pretty cool customer. I mean, he manages to do things that would make me, like, piss my pants on a daily basis.”
In a separate interview in July, the Black Widow star discussed his relationship with wife Lily Allen, including the romantic moment he realised he was in love with the “F— You” diva.
