Nope, I never knew that. But it was obvious that Esther Rolle (who played Florida) was older than John Amos (who played James). You could tell because Esther had some white in her hair and her face had some wrinkles. John, on the other hand didn't.

I always knew Esther was older than John Amos, but I never knew that John and Jimmy Walker were that close in age. That's a credit to the make up department and anyone else who helped make James Evans look older.
