But, what about age?
What happens when actors who are much, much too young to play parent and child get cast anyway? Is it possible to suspend disbelief, or does it pull you out of the story?
Soaps, daytime and prime-time, are some of the worst offenders on that scale, with often only a few years' age difference between (especially) mothers and sons. (What does that tell us about how women are expected to look? And how can real life women compete when the deck is so stacked against them?)
