The Johnsons

OLAF (Ben Barrington)


BEN BARRINGTON plays OLAF, human incarnation of Baldr, the Norse God of rebirth, light and beauty.

As such, Olaf appears not to age. He is actually the paternal Grandfather of the Johnson brothers, but they tell everyone he is their cousin.

Olaf’s drug-taking propensity is not entirely helpful to the Johnson clan of Gods in that Olaf, through divine irony, is also the Johnson God family Oracle.
