Most of his childhood was spent in boarding schools and Central School in London. Despite being the son of esteemed Irish actor Richard Harris, Jared showed little interest in following his father's career, until he was cast in a college production while attending North Carolina's Duke University (USA), where he studied drama and literature, in the early 1980s.

Still in New York, Jared appeared in the off-Broadway play "Ecstasy", for which he won an Obie Award in 1992. In 1996, he won recognition by playing famous pop artist Andy Warhol in I Shot Andy Warhol (1996). After that, Jared has appeared in lots of independent films such as Fathers' Day (1997), Smoke (1995), Lush (1999), How to Kill Your Neighbor's Dog (2000), Igby Goes Down (2002), B. Monkey (1998), Shadow Magic (2000) and VH1's Two of Us (2000) (TV) where he portrayed John Lennon'.
