Netflix has started filming its eight-episode series, “A Series of Unfortunate Events” in Vancouver. Actor Neil Patrick Harris, who takes the mantle from Jim Carrey, looked every bit evil Count Olaf on the sets. If the photos are anything to go by, he might be the scariest Count Olaf ever.
The first photos of actor Neil Patrick Harris as the evil Count Olaf are out. The actor has donned makeup to look the part. He was seen shooting some exterior scenes in Vancouver recently. However, the actor was unrecognisable with his prosthetic nose, receding hairline and darkened nails to suit the character.
According to Buzzfeed, Neil Patrick Harris sported gray facial hair. This included a pointy beard and a unibrow. He completed his look with a menacing scowl. “A Series of Unfortunate Events” is said to hit the television screens via Netflix later in 2016.
However, it was not just Count Olaf who was spotted. With the filming in progress, other actors too were seen in their get up. Two female actresses were seen in costumes and makeup. Another male actor, whose oversized coat had two large hooks attached, was also spotted. According to Movieweb, the man was possibly the “Hook-Handed Man” and actor Usman Ally is playing the character. Joyce Robbins and Jacqueline Robbins are playing the white-faced women.
“Family Guy” Patrick Warburton voices the narrator, Lemony Snicket, in the series. “A Series of Unfortunate Events” is a set of 13 children’s books written by Daniel Handler under the pen name Lemony Snicket. The books tell the story of three orphan siblings namely Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire who have to fight the villainous Count Olaf and his efforts to rob them off their family fortune.
The movie with the same title previously starred actor Jim Carrey as Count Olaf. Fans got curious when Neil Patrick Harris was announced as the creepy villain in Netflix’s series. If the first photos are anything to go by, he’s nailed it!
