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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* In ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', Season 2's "Rangers Back in Time" two-parter saw Lord Zedd turn back time. The six Ranger teens (as well as Bulk and Skull) became children with age-appropriate actors, though the school principal and their teacher were played by the same people. Master Vile tried the same trick for the final arc of Season 3, with the child actors being brought back (except for young Kimberly's, as Katherine had joined up by then). As the arc was resolved in a two-parter of its own, a young Tanya was introduced before her teenaged self appeared.

* Jason Todd in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood'' is played by three different actors for when the character is a child, a teen and an adult.



* In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', teen and adult Clark are not voiced by the same person. (However, in ''WesternAnimation/LegionOfSuperHeroes'', the same actor voices teen and adult Clark equally convincingly.)
** Another {{DCAU}} example is the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'' episode, "Kids' Stuff." Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern are magically made into children and voiced by age appropriate actors.
