Get Out star Allison Williams has joined the ensemble cast of Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. Williams is currently filming the third and final season in Vancouver, and is also confirmed to appear in season two, premiering March 30 on Netflix. Until then, her role will remain a mystery.
Based on the internationally best-selling series of books, A Series of Unfortunate Events chronicles the turbulent lives of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire after their parents’ untimely death in a fire. A careless oversight initially places the children in the custody of a distant relative named Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris), a mysterious and devious figure who is seeking fortune by way of stealing their inheritance.
Williams starred in Jordan Peele’s Oscar-nominated film Get Out. Previously, she starred as Marnie on six seasons of HBO’s Girls. Next up, Williams will guest star opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in Showtime’s limited series Patrick Melrose, followed by the lead role in the Richard Shepard-directed film, The Perfection.
