In an interview with Esquire, talking about exploring the Catholic faith, inspired by Oscar Wilde’s letter from prison, De Profundis, which he read following his time in the asylum, David Harbour said

There’s only one ray of hope in De Profundis, and it’s when Wilde is talking about Saint Francis of Assisi. So I went down that path. That’s where all this religious stuff has come to. Living within the hypocrisy. But not trying to live with hard-and-fast rules, which is why I gave up the Catholicism, because I know, for myself, my hard-and-fast rules take me to the asylum.
