Fountain of Youth

Youth is the most prized attribute an actor/actress can add to their Hollywood career. Their youthful look also appeals to a very large fan base and allow them to play many different roles that add variety to their portfolio. But did you know that older actors are playing younger roles? In many popular TV shows actors in their twenties have taken on the roles of characters aged in their youthful teens. The pressure to look young is more powerful than ever.
