It often happens that we love a movie or series so much that we completely forget that the characters that appear in them, most of the time, are fictional. However, to this we can add not only the fact that their plots catch us, but also how surprising it is to see actors playing interesting characters whose ages are very different from theirs.
We never cease to be amazed by the good performances of the stars, much less by the reality behind the scenes. That’s why we decided to find out how old these actors actually were when they played roles in major movies and series.
1. Mila Kunis was 14 years old when she was chosen to play the role of Jackie on The ’70s Show
2. At the age of 18, Keira Knightley played the role of Juliet, a newlywed adult in Really Love
3. At 29 years old, Ashleigh Murray played the teenager Josie McCoy on the series Riverdale
4. Olivia Newton-John was 28 years old when she played 17-year-old Sandy, in Vaseline.
5. At 14, Laurence Fishburne had to lie about her age to land the role of 17-year-old Tyrone Miller in Apocalypse Now
If you had the opportunity to play a young or old character in a movie or series, how old do you think you could easily appear?
