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 13 Reasons Why cast in real life? Spoiler alert: there's quite a big age gap between the actors and characters, especially now the show has released season 4.

We tracked down the birthdays of every actor who plays a student/young person on the show, including the new characters from season 4, 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 four year age gap between himself and his character. Devin is 22 years old IRL and plays an 18-year-old in the show. But we were gagged to learn that Timothy Granaderos, who plays Monty, is in fact 33 years old. That's a 15 year gap between his real age and his character's age. Congratulations to Timothy for having such great genes that he can pull off such a young character, that's all we can say.
