Gary Harvey is a television director and producer. He directed episodes 211  What Goes Up Must Come Down , 402 Osso Barko, and 404  Born This Way  of Being Erica.

In a recent interview he answers the question of how he began his career:

"My directing career began on the series Madison in 1994 where, incidentally I met Pete Mitchell, showrunner on Murdoch Mysteries. I didn’t have the common trajectory of many career directors where I knew when I was 10 that I had to direct movies. I knew it had to be entertainment, television and movies in particular, but by the time I was 16, I was convinced I was going to make my way into it through acting."

"Once out of high school I studied acting. I deeply loved, and still do, the dichotomy of extreme focus and discipline versus the chaotic and random lifestyle of actors. However once I was in it and was able to examine it, I knew that it wasn’t what my childhood inspiration had intended. Treading the boards was no longer my way in. When I moved behind the scenes and I saw a director in action for the first time, it was probably the biggest ah-ha moment of my career. I knew then that everything I had been doing since I was a child was leading me to this thing. It was exciting and inspiring. So then it was a matter of breaking down that door. Eventually, that opportunity opened up for me and the rest is history as they say." [1]
