    Default Actors getting younger roles

    so ive been watching dawsons creek (shhhhhhh lol)


    The woman that plays Andy mcphee, (meredith monroe) was 29 when she joined the cast, playing a 16 yr old! Wtf!

    Shes older than shannon doherty! Older than most of the 90210 cast!

    My mind is blown.

    Jack (her brother) in the show was also quite old 26! 8 yrs older than michelle williams!


    Can you think of other actors playing roles that are heaps younger than they are?

    Wasn't the girl who played the nerd in 90210 much older? Don't remember her character's name but she wore glasses and she had curly hair.

    The actress who plays Donna on West Wing is also older than her character implies.

    I also think most of the cast of Felicity were a few years older than the character they played? But perhaps not that much I guess.

    Colin fairy is in his 50s and played a 30 something in Bridget Jones' Diary. Sonia Hugh Grant come to think of it.

    Be still my beating heart.

    Oh, Radar on M*A*S*H, I think his character was supposed to be like 18 and he was actually in his 30s.

    And yup Hollywood, I think Stockard Channing was in her 30s when she played Rizzo
