Losing My Beard for John Adams

May 11, 2007

On May 7, 2007, I went with three of our children and acted with them as extras at the "JohnAdams" mini-series shoot (Part 2), in Goochland, Virginia. Iplayed a "Boston Towns Person". (Our fourth child, Tymon, was an extra in Part 1.) This page shows the absolutely horrible tongue in cheektrauma that I suffered, as I was *forced*!!! toshave my beard (after six years!) — since Boston Towns Persons didn't have beards. Drat them! Oh, the Tyranny of Fashion! Here, for your potential amusement, is the pictorial history of my dreadful loss. Who knows — perhaps one day I'll be an actor. ~ Peter Falkenberg Brown
