Happy 50th birthday John Barrowman  
It's already the next day in my part of the world but for John it is still March 11th, the day he turns 50. He's sharing his birthday celebrations with us via pictures and videos, so I thought this would be a good time to post my selfies from the Birmingham panto back in January. The background of the first was a bit overlit due to sunshine, so the next day we asked for the wall. Little did I know that the sunshine then was gone for the week and it was all grey and rain and cold!

PS: If you haven't seen his new hair color and style yet, go here and be shocked: https://twitter.com/JohnBarrowman/status/840699582451408896

For those who don't know, he has been grey for many many years and we all knew he colored his hair. So a few days ago he shaved it all off and now it is short and natural grey. I always said sooner or later he'll have to look his age. The transition comes as a shock so all of a sudden and we don't think he'll keep it, as he surely has to look young for TV, but I always liked a silver fox (looking at you, Richard Dean Anderson and Sean Pertwee) so I certainly wouldn't mind! I think if the hair was a bit longer it could look great. Maybe they could start to dye his temples grey at least or something...

I certainly couldn't take pictures with a phone I just got in my hand. That skill must be handy for John as he gets asked for a picture so often!

I guess he just wanted to see what it looks like, and the 50th birthday seemed like a good date.

Sooner or later he won't have a choice, having dyed the hair for so long it is pretty destroyed.
I don't know much about dyed hair, but if you cut it and regrow, is it still weaker?

It just was all of a sudden. I saw Richard Dean Anderson go grey over ten years of Stargate, and it was a natural process.
It was the same with hugh Laurie in House - you barely notice it if it happens gradually and naturally.

I don't even have a smartphone so I certainly wouldn't know how to do it!

I don't know much either but our neighbour also has dyed for decades and then from one day to the other sent white as she was told the hair cannot take it anymore. And so she did. Also my mother says you can get cancer from it? Don't know.
