About

“Old Headshots Day” is an Internet theme day that was observed in April but rose to prominence on April 26th, 2018. On this day, actors share an old headshot, which are photographs of themselves that actors use for auditions, via social networking sites and image-sharing communities.

Origin

The earliest available example of the use of "Old Headshots Day" and the hashtag "#OldHeadshotDay was postd on April 12th, 2016 by Facebook [1] user Michael Mararian. He captioned the post, "Came across some old head shots from when I was an "actor" for ten minutes in the early 90's. I don't know, what's better? Shit-kicking country Mike or relaxing business Mike? #oldheadshotday." The post (shown below) received more than 230 reactions and 50 comments in two years.
