Is it common for one character to seem to be younger than an another, even though he/she's really older?
For example, in the show that I'm working on, Girl A is The Heart
of the group, while her best friend (we'll call her Girl B) is kind of a bumblebee
who has a more naive and childlike personality. However, Girl A is 7 years old and in second grade while Girl B is 8 years and in third grade. New viewers may assume that Girl B is younger than Girl A, or at least that both girls are the same age.
Is this sort of thing common?
