* In ''Disney/TheLionKing'' (both movie and [[Theatre/TheLionKing musical]]) Simba and Nala are played by one person as cubs (Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Niketa Calame, respectively), and another as adults (MatthewBroderick and Moira Kelly, respectively).
** ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'' does it as well. Young Kiara is played by Michelle Horn, and then by Neve Campbell as an adult. Young Kovu is played by [[WesternAnimation/{{Recess}} Ryan O'Donohue]] as a cub, and Creator/JasonMarsden as an adult.

** Wilhuff Tarkin. Originally portrayed by the late Peter Cushing, he appeared briefly near the end of ''Revenge of the Sith'', portrayed by Wayne Pygram, for a brief, non-speaking cameo.



** Baby Harry Potter was played by the Saunders triplets (first names uncredited) in the first movie and by Toby Papworth in last movie. It's somewhat amusing to note that by the last film, the Saunders triplets would be the same age Creator/DanielRadcliffe was in the first film. (And no, none of them played Albus Potter in the final film, despite what Pintrest seems to think).

* Creator/HarrisonFord played adult Indiana throughout the ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' film series. River Phoenix portrayed "young Indy" at the beginning of ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'' Not enough for you? This spawned ''TheYoungIndianaJonesChronicles'' which featured ''three'' time-shifted Indys: George Hall as the elderly Indy in the framing sequences, Sean Patrick Flanery as [[DawsonCasting 16-19 year old]] Indy for the bulk of the series, and Corey Carrier as 10-year old Indy during the first season. Not to mention Ford reprising the role as a bearded, middle-aged Indy in one episode.

* In ''A Home at the End of the World'', Colin Farrell's character is played by Andrew Chalmers and Erik Smith, and Dallas Roberts's by Jonathan Glover (no, [[{{Smallville}} not that one]]). Sissy Spacek, on the other hand, stays on throughout; eight years isn't that much when you're already over 50.

* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' had Mordred played by twelve-year-old Asa Butterfield in the first two series, after which he was PutOnABus and not seen again until series 5, where he's now played by twenty-three-year-old Alexander Vlahos. However, this is justified considering seven years have passed on-screen, thanks to the [[TimeSkip Time Skips]] that occur between seasons.

* In ''PushingDaisies'', two of the main characters are Ned (played by Lee Pace) and Chuck (played by Anna Friel). However, every episode opens with a flashback to Ned's childhood, where Ned and Chuck are played by Field Cate and Sammi Hanratty, respectively. Olive (Kristin Chenoweth), Emerson (Chi [=McBride=]) and Lily (Swoosie Kurtz)also got a flashback each in season 2, in which they were played by Samantha Bailey, Stephen Wash, Jr. and [[TheSarahConnorChronicles Mackenzie Brooke Smith]], respectively.
* Every episode of ''{{Psych}}'' also begins with a flashback, with younger actors playing Shawn and Gus. However, Corbin Bernsen, who plays Shawn's father, just wears makeup and [[HairTodayGoneTomorrow a hairpiece]] to make him look younger. We get a LampshadeHanging, of course.
