Something I'd like to know about the aging of characters on a television series: do you follow along to the "bible" of that series and use the ages as the bible puts them, or do you use another way? What I do is simply this: the character's age is the same as the portrayer of that character, and as the portrayer passes his/her birthday and becomes one year older, so does the character, as long as that portrayer remains on the show. Here are a couple of examples, from Dynasty (the 1981-89 O-R ABC series): Pamela Sue Martin (born Jan. 5, 1953 in Hartford, CT): as Dynasty started Jan. 12, 1981, PSM had just become 28, and as such, by my algorithm, Fallon started at 28. Through each of her four seasons on the show (1981-84), she aged to 29 (1981-82), 30 (1982-83), and 31 (1983-84, her final year). The same algorithm is what I use for John Forsythe as Blake Carrington; John was born Jan. 29, 1918 in Penns Grove, NJ, and as Dynasty started, he was 62 (and Blake was subsequently the same age). In all first-season episodes forward of Jan. 29, he became 63. John/Blake then became 64 in the second year, 65 in the third, and so on and so forth, until both became 71 when the Dynasty series ended in 1989. In The Reunion of 1991, however, John/Blake became 73. Do you think that my method of character aging is a good one, or do you have/use another way?
