20 Actors Who Grew Old On Their TV Show. First Episode Vs. Last Episode

When we watch a show for a long time, it becomes tricky to notice the physical changes that the main characters go through. This is simply because our brains get accustomed to their faces by seeing them on TV screens for years. However, when we compare their before and after pictures, we get crazy results and realize how old they’ve grown look from the day they started. — like the cast of Grey’s Anatomy, for example, who went through dramatic physical changes over the course of 15+ years.
