In 1992, Harden played actress Ava Gardner alongside Philip Casnoff as Frank Sinatra in the made for TV miniseries Sinatra . Throughout the 1990s, she continued to appear in films and television.

Harden has owned a property in the Catskills and a townhouse in Harlem. [11] [12] [13] She sold the Harlem townhouse in 2012. [14]

Harden is an avid potter, which she learned in high school, and then took up again while acting in Angels in America. [15] [11]

Harden is a practitioner of ikebana , the art of Japanese flower arrangement, which her mother learned while they lived in Japan. [16] She gave a brief demonstration in 2007 on The Martha Stewart Show and presented some works of her family as well. [17] In May 2018, a memoir called The Seasons of My Mother: A Memoir of Love, Family, and Flowers was published. The book details the story and bond of mother and daughter throughout time and how they are dealing with the largest struggle yet, her mother's Alzheimer's disease.
