In 2000, Harold landed the controversial role of unapologetic gay man Brian Kinney, a central character on Showtime's popular gay drama Queer as Folk, a breakthrough performance that included a level of explicit gay male sex unusual for American television. Brian Kinney's character, as well as the show itself, elicited quite a great deal of controversy. It was alternately lauded and criticized for its explicit depictions of gay club life. The show ran for five successful seasons, ending in 2005.In July 2010, it was announced at the Television Critics Association Summer Tour that Harold had accepted a recurring role as a law professor in the upcoming series Hellcats. Executive Producer Kevin Murphy said of him: “Oh my God, I was such a fan of his on Queer As Folk. He has the ability to be really, really wicked smart and also just really kind of sexy and immersive, and his character, he pulls you in. He’s a seducer and I think all the great lawyers are seducers.” The series concluded its season with Harold's character involved in a sexual affair with the show's lead character Marti (played by Aly Michalka). However, the series was cancelled after one season. Prior to cancellation, however, it was announced that Harold would be a regular in another prospective CW series, The Secret Circle, based on a trilogy of popular young adult novels.
Following considerable buzz in the press, the CW picked up The Secret Circle for the fall of 2011. The series will revolve around a coven of teenaged witches in a small town in Washington State (changed from Maine in the novels), each a member of a different witch clan dating back to the 17th Century. Harold will play the show's villain, a scheming and powerful male witch (the word "warlock" will apparently not be used) who is the father of one of the teenagers. Because the author of the novel cycle, L. J. Smith, is also the author of the novels on which the CW series The Vampire Diaries is based, and because the series creators (Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec) are the same, the CW intends to use the latter show as the lead-in for The Secret Circle. Both shows will air on Thursday nights.
Reaction from journalists who have seen the show's pilot episode has been almost uniformly positive, with one writer predicting: "We feel like Gale Harold is going to steal every single scene he's in on the show, just like he basically stole this extended trailer. He was creepy as hell threatening Adam's father (Adam Harrington) and even creepier when he was putting on the nice guy act for Cassie... after killing her mother. We already love to hate him."
