Headshots capture how actors want to show themselves to the world at a particular moment in time. But times, of course, have a funny way of changing. We asked all 39 actors nominated for Tony Awards in 2018 to send us their publicity shots from years gone by, and here are the beautiful images we collected. Warning: This roundup contains sincerity, dreams, light smoldering, multiple child actors and some truly wonderful hair. Please enjoy responsibly.
