While attending the BoxLunch Holiday Gala honoring the nonprofit Feeding America in Hollywood earlier this week, the actor, 48, spoke exclusively with about his marriage to Allen, 38, which he said is going "so great."

Detailin that his relationship with his musician wife was affected by the actors’ strike, which ended on Thursday, Harbour said, “Ultimately, it's very good because you get to know someone."

"But, let me tell you, my wife likes when I go to work because it's nice for her to have her life and me to have my life and for us not to just annoy each other by being around all the time," he continued.

“We have these two kids, and it's so great,” Harbour added, referring to his stepchildren, Allen’s daughters Ethel, 11 and Marnie, 10. “We get to raise them and stuff, and as our marriage continues, we grow closer and closer.”

Amid the strike, Harbour felt "bad" for Allen, as he admitted he was “sitting on the couch depressed as hell” with “nothing” to do.

“It's been bad," the actor told  “It's like what happened to me in the same way in COVID, where you think to yourself like, ‘Oh, now, I kind of have all this time.’ And then you just check your Google alerts every five minutes and are just neurotically insecure.”

Harbour and Allen tied the knot in Las Vegas in September 2020, during a ceremony officiated by an Elvis Presley impersonator.

The wedding took place a year after the duo went Instagram official when Harbour shared a photo of them together at Disney World.

In September, Allen penned a tribute to Harbour on their third wedding anniversary, writing, "3 years with this guy, 2nd best decision I ever made. 1st was that dress.”

Harbour also told  at the gala this week that he is “super excited to be back at work” on the fifth season of Stranger Things, which he said production begins on next week.

“They literally called me, I think it was 10 minutes after the SAG thing on Twitter," he said. "The first AD [Assistant Director] is like, ‘So, get the flight for you on Monday, right? We'll be acting in Atlanta.’ ”

“I'm thrilled with that. I'm ready to work,” the actor added.
