In 2006, Harriell auditioned for the Quentin Tarantino's film Death Proof (part of the double feature Grindhouse.) Mr. Tarantino was so intrigued by Harriell's "southern boy" characterization, that he rewrote the part specifically for her and renamed the character Marcy.
In December 2013, Lin-Manuel Miranda recruited Harriell to help him record demos of his songs for the Disney animated motion picture, Moana. Harriell's outtakes of the songs More and More (Reprise) were included on the Moana Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
