is an American actor who portrays Count Olaf
in the Netflix adaptation
of A Series of Unfortunate Events
, and also helps produce the show. He will appear in all 3 seasons of the show due to his role as Count Olaf, like Jim Carrey
once was intended to.
His role is especially hard because when doing the disguises, he has to portray Count Olaf who is portraying someone else.
His husband is David Burtka and he has two children, Gideon Burtka-Harris and Harper Burtka-Harris, via a surrogate mother. All three of them also appeared in The Carnivorous Carnival: Part Two as Mr. Willums, Skip Willums, and Trixie Willums.
