Jonathan Harris, popularly known as Jonny Harris, is an award-winning Canadian comedian, actor, television producer, event host, as well as a screenwriter. He made up his mind quite early in life to be an actor and he did all he could to become one. He is very popular in his native country, Canada, having warmed his way into the hearts of many with sterling performances in the movies and television shows that he has featured in.
Jonny has won a few awards in his years in the entertainment industry, mostly in Canada. It might not be too long before we see him make that big move to Hollywood – where everyone can live the American dream.
Jonny Harris was born into the Harris family on September 22, 1975, in Pouch Cove, Newfoundland in Canada. Jonny definitely has acting embedded into his DNA, as his father was a junior artist at the time he was born; his mother, on the other hand, was an academic who worked in a Junior High School in Canada. He has three older siblings – all of them are sisters. Jonny rarely mentions anything about his family, growing up years, or his siblings.
Jonny started off his acting career and training by working for about 5 years at the Rising Tide Theater Festival in Trinity Bay, Newfoundland, Canada. The very valuable experiences he garnered here prepared him for the next phase of his life and gave him a sure footing to forge ahead in his chosen career. After this, he started featuring in both television shows and movies, taking on small roles to cut his teeth in the industry.
Sometime in 2006, he began to feature in a television series called Hatching, Matching and Dispatching as Troy Furey and his sparkling performances on the show brought his talent to the attention of the Canadian audience and gave him his first shot at fame and recognition for his work. Jonny is also a comedian and has performed at various comedy shows and events such as the Halifax Comedy Festival, Just For Laughs comedy festival, Canada’s famed Winnipeg comedy festival and others; he has also featured on a comedy programme called The Debaters on CBC Radio.
Jonny is a multi-talented artist and individual who has hosted very prestigious events. In March 2018, he co-hosted (alongside Emma Hunter) the 6th Canadian Screen Awards televised live all over Canada; this annual award was set up to honour the incredible talents gracing Canadian movies, television shows and other digital media through which entertainment content is shared.
Jonny has featured in movies such as Grown Up Movie Star, Young Trifle and Moving Day; and television shows such as Republic of Doyle, The Listener and Frankie Drake Mysteries, just to mention a few.
Jonny is currently worth about $1.5 million. He has made most of his wealth from his acting career in the film and television industry in Canada. He also earns substantial income from his comedy shows, as well as hosting big events. His fortune is predicted to increase further if he does make the switch to Hollywood.
Is Jonny Harris Married To A Wife Or Is He Gay?
The relationship status of Jonny Harris is a little bit interesting and peculiar. A lot of celebrities always prefer to shield their private life – including their relationship status and family information from the public space and it is not exactly clear if this is what Jonny is currently doing.
He is currently single and since he is a tall, handsome, rich and very good looking bloke, it’s very surprising that a string of ladies have not/are not being linked to him. He has never shared any information about him being in a relationship with anyone and this has fueled rumours that he might probably be gay and not willing to come out as such.
Sources close to Jonny, however, maintain that he has a straight sexual orientation and that he has indeed secretly dated a few ladies, but that he is currently focusing on his career at this point.
There was an unconfirmed rumour that Jonny dated Georgina Reilly, his co-star on the Murdoch Mysteries television show. None of them has spoken about this publicly, thus, it can only be treated as a rumour.
