The audition went well as Harrison delivered his script with the right amount of humor. He became a guest on "Family Matters" and with time, he bagged a regular appearance.

USA Today shares that during the magazine reunion of the  "Family Matters" cast, Jaleel White shared a story similar to Harrison's.

He mentioned that he was trying to get out of the acting business when his manager picked him for the audition. White, who played the acclaimed role of Steve Urkel, got the part because of his braces. He explained in his interview:

"I just started kind of walking like a geek, and I was just like, 'Hi, nice to meet you.' I did the voice."
