After recovering from the disease he moved to London, wanting to become a director. He could not find any suitable courses and enrolled in the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) to learn acting. While still a student, Harris rented the tiny "off-West End" Irving Theatre, and directed his own production of the Clifford Odets play Winter Journey (The Country Girl).

He appeared as King Arthur in the film adaptation of Camelot (in which he was cast despite his limited singing range, just like Richard Burton), and proceeded to appear on stage in that role for years. He recorded several albums, one ("A Tramp Shining") included the seven-minute hit song written by Jimmy Webb, "MacArthur Park" (which Harris mispronounced as "MacArthur's Park"); that song reached #2 on the United States Billboard magazine pop chart, while topping several charts in Europe, in the summer of 1968.

From 1973 until 1983, Harris was a vocal supporter of the Irish Republican Army. He publicly criticised the British Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath's policy of internment without trial in northern Ireland. Heath responded that Harris should "ask his friends to stop murdering people." In 1975 Harris attended a fundraiser for the IRA in America, which led to death threats and forced him to leave The Eagle Has Landed. He was replaced by Michael Caine, an actor he greatly disliked. In 1983, while touring America as King Arthur in the musical "Camelot", Harris was asked by reporters to comment on the Christmas Eve bombing of Harrod's. He replied that the icident was "horribly wrong, but understandable", and added, "Do you honestly think that arrogant woman the British Prime Minister cares about the innocent women and children who were killed? All she thinks is great, now the IRA will lose support in America." His comments caused a firestorm of controversy in Britain, with even his original champion, the left-wing Daily Mirror newspaper accusing him of terrorist sympathies and active involvement with the IRA. Harris, said to be shocked by the public reaction, apologised for his remarks and said the Harrod's bombing had ended whatever sympathies he had for the IRA.

By the end of the 1980s, his star had waned considerably. He was familiar with the stage plays of fellow Irishman John B. Keane, and had heard that one of them, The Field, was being adapted for film by director Jim Sheridan. Sheridan was working with actor Ray McAnally on the adaptation, intending to feature McAnally in the lead role of Bull McCabe. When McAnally died suddenly during initial preparations for the film, Harris began a concerted campaign to be cast as McCabe. This campaign eventually succeeded, and the film version of The Field (which also starred Tom Berenger) was released in 1990. Harris earned an Academy Award nomination for his portrayal.

Late in his career, he acted in the Oscar-winning films Unforgiven and Gladiator (in the latter as Marcus Aurelius). He gained a new generation of fans as Albus Dumbledore in the first two Harry Potter films. He has come to be identified with this role by the new generation, much as Alec Guinness was for playing Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars films in the '70s (though like Guinness he professed strong dislike for the role). In 2003, his voice could be heard as the character Opaz in the animated film, Kaena: The Prophecy. The movie was also dedicated to him as he had died the previous year.
