I was just browsing through wiki and was suprised to discover that the cast are quite old. Will, Simon and Jay are 25, 26 and 22 - they definitely don't look that old. I was convinced they were around the age they are playing, around 17, 18, 19.
They're quite smart too, Will and Simon are both Cambridge graduates!
total opposite to their characters and 25 and 26 wtf?!?! 21 and 22 maybe but this...shocking lol
and the actor who plays Jay went to the Chafford School in Rainham which is near where I live - in fact some of my friends at college went to the Chafford School and he would have been like year 11 when they were year 7 (and i was year 7 )
It always makes me laugh when you see them interviewed and they have ridiculous attempts at facial hair as if to show they're grown-ups and not really 17. Even though they may be in their mid-20s, they certainly dont look or act like it, even outside of the show (in interviews I mean)
