This time the actor George Burcea will be portraying the role of Lurch in the upcoming show, Wednesday.

Fans are very excited to see him on the big screen, and there is a massive expectation from the actor as the character is powerful.

Over the years, a few actors have played Lurch, The Addams Family's long-suffering Butler, most notably Ted Cassidy, who played the character in the original "Addams Family" TV series. 

The primarily silent servant, a Frankenstein-like man, was always ready to take care of any comedic needs Gomez, Morticia, Fester, and the gang had at any given time.

Lurch was a role that the late Cassidy would reprise a decade later in the 1970s animated series "The Addams Family."

The character, Lurch, was created on the page by cartoonist Charles Addams, possibly inspired by Boris Karloff's role as a similar butler character to a strange family in James Whale's The Old Dark House.

The 1932 classic was released several years before the creation of The Addams Family, later in the 1930s, and it was cut from the same oddball cloth.

Comrade Detective (2017), Singh Is Bliing (2015), and Say Yes (2018) are among his other notable roles.

Burcea, who is in his early 30s, is roughly the same age as Ted Cassidy was when he took on the role of Lurch, which is worth noting.

George Burcea is credited as Lurch in episodes 1 and 5 of "Wednesday," implying that he won't be a constant presence throughout the series.

With the show focusing primarily on Wednesday Addams and her time at Nevermore Academy, it appears the show will transport us away from the house and the rest of the family.

The company made a net profit of 73,907 lei and a position transfer of 129,633 lei. Despite the terrible circumstances caused by the pandemic, George Burcea had a successful fiscal year in 2020.
