Default Actors who play older or younger than their real ages

https://lebeauleblog.com/2017/07/16/...just-a-number/

Quote:
It honestly depends on the role and the actor. If an actor or actress looks much older or younger than their actual age, then they should play a role made for someone older than them, seeing as they’d be more believable as someone older than them anyway.

Look at Phylicia Rashad. She was 36 when she played Claire Huxtable in The Cosby Show.




However, Phylicia looked about 10 years older than that. In real life, she was 11 years younger than Bill Cosby but their age difference wasn’t noticeable because she looked like she was around Cosby’s age, even if she actually wasn’t.

She looked much younger than him in the beginning and he was way out of her league looks wise.

Cool

There was also an 11 year age diffeence between Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore when they were playing Rob and Laura Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show. However their on screen chemistry was so good that they were believable as a married couple.
