Want to know how old the cast of 13 Reasons Why are? Well you've come to the right place.
Here's the thing about TV shows about teens; the actors are never are young as the characters they're playing. And 13 Reasons Why is no exception.
Most of the characters in the show, with the exception of the adults, are supposed to be 17 or 18-years-old. But how old are the cast in real life? Well, we were curious and so we tracked down the birthdays of every actor who plays a student/young person on the show, including several new characters, and compared their true ages with their on screen ages and the results were quite surprising.
The youngest actor was Devin Druid, who plays Tyler Down, who has a three year age gap between himself and his character. Devin is 20-years-old IRL and plays a 17-year-old in the show. On the opposite end of the scale, Ross Butler has the widest gap between his real age and that of his character, Zach Dempsey. Ross is 27 IRL while Zach is 17-years-old, a ten year age difference. That said, Chelsea Alden, who plays a new character in season two called Mackenzie, might beat Zach to the title but her character's age has not been confirmed yet.
