Boardwalk Empire

Boardwalk Empire/HBO/2009-2014 (Disfigured/Missing Eye)

Richard Harrow (Jack Huston), loyal mercenary, marksman/sniper and employee of gangster James “Jimmy” Darmody (Michael Pitt) who is involved in bootlegging and other illegal dealings along the boardwalks of Atlantic City, New Jersey during the Prohibition period of the 1920s and 1930s.


Harrow’s gruesomely disfigured face (upper jaw, cheekbone and missing eye) was damaged while fighting in the Army during World War I. He wears a painted tin mask molded to conceal and match the left side of his face. Harrow speaks in a low, muffled voice due to injuries to his throat.
