Yeah, so like, in The Sound Of Music, the character of Liesl is played by a 22 year old, who imagines herself to be sixteen, going on seventeen…
Like, plausible much?
Then her boyfriend Rolf is played by a 21 year old, and explains that being a year older than Liesl, he is better able to look after her
Some mad timeshifting going on there!
But seriously, you would hope that in a character dynamic that is defined by their age difference, they might have obtained actors who were better able to play the characters’ ages more realistically.
