What 19 Actors and Actress Would Look Like If They Were the Same Age As the Characters They Played

When directors hire older actors to portray young characters, they obviously do it for their talent. Makeup doesn’t always help hide wrinkles and age spots. But the amazing acting helps viewers suppress their disbelief and enjoy the story.

We at Now I’ve Seen Everything, decided to use our imagination and think about what famous movie characters would look like if they were portrayed by actors who were the same age.

19. Verónica Castro — Rosa García (Rosa salvaje)

We’re sure that a truly talented actor can portray an old man and a teenager. Do you agree? Who do you think was great in their role, and who was not very convincing as a young character.
