13 Pairs of Actors and Actresses Who Played Parents and Kids Despite Their Small Age Gap

Experienced actors and actresses don’t find it difficult to play a character of any age and movie producers and directors know this and use it to their advantage. All because the presence of a talented celebrity in a project is much more important than a precise match with the plot. But these nuances are hard to hide from the eyes of attentive viewers when actors of the same age play the roles of parents and kids.

We at Bright Side watched many movies and TV series where the on-screen parent-kid pairings had an unnatural age difference. Some of these cases left us completely perplexed.
