Big ears An uncle of mine was in the 1947 to 53 a child actor in small parts A few parts in the television Lassey and some in a few movies. Most were only a few lines. Others just where a kid was required to be in shot. Erik Per Sullivan, like my uncle Jason P Milbourne has big ears and was told many time that it was his ears that stopped him from getting more work acting. While big ears are cute in a young kid Once over the age of about 12 big ears become ugly and very noticable especially in a man.
