Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Series/Camelot}}'': Claire Forlani (Igraine) is only 16 years older than Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays Arthur, her son. The two look even closer in age while performing on the show. Of course, real noblewomen in some cases did have children that young.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who plays Gregor Clegane [[TheOtherDarrin from season 3 onwards]], was only 25 when he took up the role. Notably, he's about 19 years younger than [=Rory McCann=], who plays his character's ''younger'' brother. In his case, he was chosen due to his size, as Björnsson is one of the largest men in the world and the producers felt that was a more important aspect of the character than his age. He also wears a helmet in most of his scenes, which makes his age difficult to ascertain, though it's definitely distracting when his face is shown.

* In the early installments of the ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' series, Rand Miller streaked his hair and beard grey and affected a gravelly, world-weary tone of voice to play the much older Atrus; it also helped to differentiate Atrus from [[IdenticalGrandson his son Achenar]], whose hair was darker and who spoke in a higher register. By the time of ''Exile'' and ''Revelation'', Rand was old enough to play Atrus with his natural voice and without fake grey in his hair; casting a different actor as Achenar in ''Revelation'' also helped.

The fact that Atrus has more long-lived D'ni blood than his sons might help account for Rand looking awfully young to be Achenar's father in-Verse.

* The two best-known films of ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'': Creator/FrancoZeffirelli's version had Creator/GlennClose, who is only nine years older than Creator/MelGibson, as Gertrude, and in Grigori Kozintsev's version Elsa Radzin is eight years older than Innokenty Smoktunovsky. In Creator/LaurenceOlivier's version, Eileen Herlie was eleven years ''younger'' than Olivier. (Creator/KennethBranagh at least averted it by casting Julie Christie, 19 years older than him).

* This naturally occurs in ''Series/TheSecretCircle'' with DawsonCasting. The most egregious examples are Cassie and her mother and Charles Meade and his mother, both only thirteen years apart.
** To be fair, Cassie's mother did have her in high school so this isn't that bad.
