* All of the child characters in ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' were voiced by children and many were replaced when their voices broke. However, in the upcoming ''Jungle Movie'', a few of the original actors will reprise their roles despite being in their thirties now.

* The teenagers in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' look to be in their early to mid-20s. Since the game is supposed to be like an American-style high school drama and was made at the height of Squaresoft's period of trying to be 'cinematic', it comes across as an intentional stab at creating the look of a Dawson-Cast movie.

This is especially apparent with Squall, who was [[ComicBookFantasyCasting modelled after]] a musician who had been in his 30s at the time of development.

* For his 1968 production of Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet, Creator/FrancoZeffirelli engaged in a worldwide search for unknown actors of close to the right age for the leads. He ultimately chose 17-year-old Creator/LonardWhiting for Romeo and 15-year-old Creator/OliviaHussey for Juliet. Because of their age and inexperience, Zeffirelli made minor changes to the play, mostly trimming of some of the longer speeches.

* John Owen Jones was 26 when he first assumed the role of Jean Valjean in ''Theatre/LesMiserables'', who ages from late thirties-early forties at the beginning of the show and into his sixties by the end. Alexander Gemignani was 27 when he starred as Valjean in the Broadway revival. This kind of thing also happens to a lesser degree with Javert and the Thenardiers, who age similarly to Valjean throughout the show, and are usually cast near the younger end of that range (i.e. 40s). Valjean, however, is most susceptible to inverted Dawson Casting due to the role being written for a high tenor, and there are few men Valjean's age who can hit those high notes with the kind of power necessary for the role.
* Similarly, this has been a respected convention for the casting of the very aged Theatre/KingLear, due to the exhausting nature of the role (in one scene, Lear has to carry around [[spoiler:Cordelia's body]]). However, this has not stopped many of the Shakespearean actors in their sixties and seventies from taking on the role, particularly more recently, and often multiple times throughout their lives. As a result, Lears come in all different ages.

* Angela from ''VideoGame/SilentHill2'' is intended to be a teenager, but was played by an actress in her 40's. This was done on purpose to emphasize how damaged she was after her DarkAndTroubledPast.
