Who Am I and Why Am I Doing This?
I am Gary Kephart, and
I work at renaissance faires in the Southern California area. At the major
one, the Renaissance Pleasure Faire (RPF), I portray Sir Charles Blount.
I first heard about Blount while doing military history research for the
Elizabethan time period. I also was encouraged to play Blount by Terri
Saffouri, who was playing Baroness Rich at the same faire. I now own a copy
of "Mountjoy: Elizabethan General" by Cyril Falls. I'm ignoring the Portsmouth stuff for the time being.
I'm also a colonel of a small regiment of men at RPF.
