Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Gangly young supporting player of Native American heritage. Burrows gained prominence as Ed Chigliak, the intelligent, inquisitive, and innocent teen who aspires to become the Woody Allen of Alaskan filmmaking. This always amiable kid embodies the heartwarming generosity of spirit that made CBS's "Northern Expososure" a hit. Both actor and character are half Native American. One-quarter Cherokee and one-quarter Apache, Burrows has light-colored hair that he must dye bi-weekly for the show.Prior to "Northern Exposure," Burrows apppeared in several feature films: "976-EVIL" (1988), Brian DePalma's "Casualties of War" (1989), "Class of 1999" (1990), and John Waters' "Cry-Baby." With the exception of "Cry-baby," Burrows' roles were generally small and undistinguished, and his characters in exceedingly unpleasant situations. He has also had parts in short-lived shows like "TV 101" and "Hard Time on Planet Earth." Though he is not usually the focus of "Northern Exposure" episodes, he is usually clad in a leather jacket, observing without judgment as he files away material for his ongoing project of documenting his very special environment.
