Harrell was born in Louisville Kentucky, Paul’s father is Joseph Ronald Harrell, his mother is Susan Jean Knoppe. His father served in the National Guard of the United States. At age 15 during orientation for Bethlehem high school, an elective jumped out at him: "Drama Club". At this moment, he thought to himself, "I could be a professional actor". He joined, studied and booked his first audition. He did not graduate as scheduled and instead acquired a G.E.D. Unhappy with his achievements, he chose a career path his father would support more than acting, video game design and development. He moved to Orlando Florida to attend Full Sail University where he acquired an Associate of Science Degree in the field, along with two course director awards.
Harrell attended a cattle call for zombies in an independent feature The Dead Walk; he was reminded of his feelings at age 15, and knew he must move to Los Angeles to further his development as an actor. However, before he left Florida, he booked another role in another indie feature Blood Ties: The Legend of Hammerhead. He booked roles in short films, one being a faith based film Taking A Stand by Director Morgan Rodner. Rodner wore a Batman shirt while filming, which started a discussion that led to fan film Tell Gordon Hello which has over a million views on YouTube. He appeared twice on Jimmy Kimmel Live in his replica Mark 3 Iron Man armor which he also used to street perform. In his hometown of Bardstown Kentucky, Director John A. Coulter was working on a great depression period piece about the death of the family farm. Harrell mailed his material to John, including a copy of short film Jeremy, and he was cast as Jack Pruitt in The Old Winter. The footage from this film put Harrell in such a light that others in the industry saw his ability as a major talent with tremendous camera presence.
Producer Mike Fuhrmann met Harrell years before while street performing and gave him a dual role of Street Punk and Shadow Man in the silent short film The Case of Conrad Cooper about invisible homelessness, which also won many awards. Short film Jeremy led to another contact, producer Jeff Robinson who offered Harrell a role as a downtrodden man in Dylan Narang's All I Need. Harrell was introduced to director Vlad Koslov by Christopher Dennis, which led to a role portraying himself in his Iron Man suit in The Kid along with Dennis and Franco Nero.
