Natalie Dormer, aged 32, as 17-year-old Margaery Tyrell on Game of Thrones.

Thanks for the submission! Here’s my master post about the overall age fuckery on Game of Thrones.

ETA: Fixed Natalie Dormer’s age in the first picture. Thanks to everyone who pointed this out :-)

Ginger Snaps

19 year old Katharine Isabelle playing 16 year old Ginger Fitzgerald and 23 year old Emily Perkins as 15 year old Brigitte Fitzgerald in Ginger Snaps

16 year old Katherine Isabelle playing teenaged Lacey Potter in Married to a Stranger

15/16 year old Emily Perkins as teenaged Desiree Helm in Miracle on Interstate 880

CORRECTION
My initial post about Brandon Mychal Smith accidentally included an image of another actor from Gridiron Gang, Jade Yorker, rather than Brandon Mychal Smith. My apologies to both actors for this error.
Can anyone help me find an actual picture of Brandon Mychal Smith, aged 17, in Gridiron Gang?
In any case, above is a pic of Brandon Mychal Smith looking awesome, aged 20, as a teenager on Sonny With A Chance.
Thanks, and my apologies!!

Thomas Brodie Sangster

This is Game of Thrones so the age could be a little off.

Sangster at 24 as Jojen Reed in Game of Thrones. The character in the books is 14. Age not given in show.

Related: my post on Game of Thrones age fuckery. The moral of the story is basically, the show has dragons, so weird aging is really the least weird thing about it.

Yup, this is one of the classic actual teen casting scenarios.

Here’s my post about Alan Ruck.

bloom-ingperfect said: Katie Leclerc from Switched at Birth, I found out, is actually 27 playing a high schooler. In 2005 she was on Veronica Mars as an actual teen yet in about season 5 of Big Bang Theory she got set up on a date with Raj - she's covering all her bases.

Katie Leclerc is a great example of someone who bounces around playing both teens and adults at the same time. She also played an adult on Community last season, while still playing a teen on Switched at Birth.

Here’s a link to my original Katie Leclerc actual teen post (including pics of her from Veronica Mars and Switched at Birth).

Interesting article today from the BBC about actual teens (the actual phenomenon, not this tumblr). Click for the article.
"Perhaps one of the most famous examples of "acting down" is Sally Thomsett, who played Phyllis in the Railway Children. She was 20 when her character was just 11. "That’s a large age gap because a lot happens between 11 and 20, you’ve got all your teenage years," she says.
