Cliff Emmich has amassed a large fan following in recent years by playing many personalities in movies and on stage. However, he is best known for his role as John Bevins in the NBC historical drama series Little House on the Prairie. The character made his single appearance on the program in the fourth episode of the show’s fifth season. He was not one of the series’ main characters, but his appearance had a significant influence on the plot.
Bevins lives in Winoka, Minnesota, with his daughter Amelia Bevins and wife Bess in Woodville. The family is well-known for its strong ties with the Ingalls. Bevins was presented as an overweight figure, and Emmich claimed in 1978 that there was nothing amusing about it.
