Canadian comedic veteran Ken Hall worked in the Netflix’s hit live-action series The Umbrella Academy. He  recently appeared as Dr. Becker in Netflix’s original film Polar alongside Vanessa Hudgens, Johnny Knoxville and Richard Dreyfuss.


In The Umbrella Academy, you play the role of Herb. Can you tell us about your character?

I do! Herb is a diligent office worker who due to circumstances within the Commission and the inner turmoil within the power structure (especially with The Handler played by the very funny Kate Walsh), Herb is placed in the position to subvert the powers that be from within in the name of doing what's right. Herb is a highly skilled and yet nervous and awkward individual who means well and ends up finding his voice, his courage and eventually becoming the acting chairperson of the Commission - quite the promotion!
