These actors played their "child" roles so convincingly that we never had any idea they were actually grown ups. Join us as we explore the history of adults who played kids in movies and fooled us all.
In the 2002 romantic comedy Bend it Like Beckham, Parminder Nagra stars as a London teen named Jess, who joins a local women's soccer team at the urging of her friends. Her natural talent for the sport shines through, and Jess is soon leading the team on its way to the championship.
In the movie, Jess becomes close friends with her teammate Jules, played by Keira Knightley, and a budding romance develops between Jess and her young and attractive coach, Joe. Not everything is perfect, though, as the championship takes place on the same day as Jess' sister's wedding, and Jess' strict parents have forbidden her to play and don't even know she's on the team.
Although Bend it Like Beckham is just a sports-themed spin on the traditional teen romcom, the star of the movie wasn't even close to being a teenager herself. When Nagra played 18-year-old Jess in the film, the actress was actually 26.

Ralph Macchio was 21 and older than most of the cast except Patrick Swayze when he played Johnny Cade in The Outsiders but looked 14. He was 22 in Karate Kid, 25 in the second KK movie and 27 and married in the 3rd. There's an old David Letterman interview of him. He was 30 but looked 20. He's 58 now, doesn't look like it. Looks 40. He aged really well.

Maybe I'm just jaded, but I'm not sure why this is a list. Most actors playing anyone younger than 20 are actually close to, if not already in, their 30s. I just assumed that was common knowledge.

I’ve heard they can’t shoot more than a few hours with a minor so that’s why they usually pick an older actress or actor. That’s why they got so excited about Mary Kate and Ashley in full house because they could shoot with one and when the time was up for one twin they would start shooting with the other twin.

Hollywood producer explained it to me once. I asked her why not use teenagers to play teenage roles? She said that among the main reasons is to try to contain the problems that come with the laws regarding underage actors and keeping teenage hormones in check. At least that is why she said that she rarely used underaged actors at her indies.
