When a story spans decades, it is often not possible for the one actor to play the same character throughout. Heavy make-up might just let the 30 year old play 90, but never 10. Instead, multiple actors are used for the same role.

** Otherwise, the Harry Potter series represents a notable aversion. When the first movie was made, it was assumed that the child actors would probably need to be recast at some point, but all of the major ones remained for the entirety of the series - nearly a decade in total.
