You will most probably recognise Nate Richert from his role as Harvey Kinkle in Sabrina the Teenage Witch, but what has he been up to since?

Nate was catapulted into stardom…

In 1996 the world was introduced to the Sabrina the Teenage Witch star and everybody fell in love with him! Is there anyone who didn’t want Harvey Kinkle as their boyfriend?

Harvey and Sabrina might not have seen eye-to-eye in every scenario but their love for each other made itself clear…

Nate was on the show for seven years – from 1996-2003. During that time he was also in Fantasy Island (1998), Touched by an Angel (2000), Lovely & Amazing (2001) and Piñata: Survival Island (2003).

Post Sabrina, Nate was in Gamebox 1.0 (2004), The Sure Hand of God (2004) and H-e-n-r-y (2006).

However, 2006 was the very last time we saw Nate credited for a role.

Why did he leave Hollywood?..

Last December, a fan tweeted Nate in regards to his Sabrina character Harvey, stating that he was his favorite character in Sabrina the Teenage Witch. The fan also wanted to know why Nate hasn’t starred in other shows in later years.

Nate replied with a heartbreaking admission:

Nates tweet reiterates the lack of support that was in place for actors in previous years, as well as highlighting the importance of mental health assistance nowadays.

What has he been doing instead of acting?..

Earlier in 2018, Nate spoke up for fellow actor, Geoffrey Owens – best known for The Cosby Show – after he was trolled for working at Trader Joe’s.

In the thread of tweets, Nate said:

‘I’ve been an actor for 32 yrs (since age 8). I’m extremely lucky to have had any success at all, let alone solid work in film and TV for 6yrs (20yrs ago). I’m currently a maintenance man, a janitor, a carpenter, and do whatever random jobs I can get to pay the bills. I do improv […]

and songwrite to maintain my sanity. Actors so very rarely have job security or consistent work, quality healthcare, a reasonable retirement. We are actors anyway because it is who we are at the core, for the love and need to bring the words on the page to life and to make you […]

feel them (god, I love to make you laugh!) Not for fame, at least not in the traditional sense. Fame, to me, has only ever meant “maybe more work someday.” A necessary evil because fame = the loss of anonymity, which can be uplifting when it brings someone joy, and hard when mean […]

people decide to be mean. GeoffreyOwens is an actor of a very high caliber; long before and long after playing “Elvin” on Cosby. I can’t wait to see what’s next. ‘. 

Like Geoffrey said at the time, ‘Every job is worthwhile’ and this is something that Nate is promoting.

Nate also wasn’t kidding about the songwriting! He has his own YouTube channel where he uploads songs and comedy sketches.

He’s known for his role as Harvey…

As outsiders to the world of fame and fortune, you’d think that being recognised for a role you did, like, a bajillion years ago, would be annoying.

Not for our Nate:

Does he still see his Sabrina the Teenage Witch co-stars?..

Occasionally, the ’90s hit show co-stars do meet up, and post pics for us all to heart-burst over!

Nate also supports his co-workers and friends all over socials. We love a friend who supports you even though you might not see them all the time!

Who is Nate dating?..

Nate is currently dating Malorie Felt. She is an actress and model who is based in L.A.. You may recognise Malorie from the short movie Chapter 32 (2018), the TV movie Up In Smoke (2015) as well as the TV series The Late Night Experiment with Motown Maurice (2013).

It is unknown just how long the pair have been dating, but the couple must hit it off as Nate just hijacked his own birthday party – more specifically, his cake – by writing the words, ‘Will you marry me?’ on top of it!
