Jared Francis Harris (born 24 August 1961) is an English actor, best known for his roles as Lane Pryce on the AMC drama series Mad Men, David Robert Jones on the Fox science-fiction series Fringe, and as King George VI in Netflix's The Crown. He has also had significant supporting roles in films such as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011), Lincoln (2012) and Allied (2016).
Harris was born in London, one of three sons of Irish actor Richard Harris, and his first wife, Welsh actress Elizabeth Rees-Williams. His younger brother is actor Jamie Harris, his older brother is director Damian Harris, and his maternal grandfather was politician David Rees-Williams, 1st Baron Ogmore.
Harris began his film career as director of an unfinished feature-length film for Duke University's Freewater Films named Darkmoor in 1983. His first film appearance as an actor was in The Rachel Papers in 1989. He played the role of the aged Will Robinson in the movie adaptation of the television series Lost in Space. Harris played Dr. Charles Ashford in Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Benmont Tench in Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man, and Kenneth Branagh's character's doppelgänger in How to Kill Your Neighbor's Dog.
Other notable roles include King Henry VIII in the first film adaptation of the novel The Other Boleyn Girl. He also portrayed Andy Warhol in I Shot Andy Warhol, and John Lennon in the television movie Two of Us. In 1998 he played Vladimir in the black comedy drama film Happiness written and directed by Todd Solondz. He played the gruff Captain Anderson in the BBC2 adaptation of To the Ends of the Earth; Mac McGrath in the movie Mr. Deeds; Eamon Quinn on the FX series The Riches; and David Robert Jones on Fringe. One of his more recent film roles was Ulysses S. Grant in the Steven Spielberg-directed Lincoln. He played Lane Pryce in Mad Men from 2009 until 2012 and returned to the series to direct the 11th episode of season 7, which aired in 2015.
