From Harper's BAZAAR

New Netflix series Outer Banks follows two sets of rivaling teenaged groups, the Kooks and the Pogues, acting as stand-ins for the all-American parable between the haves and the have-nots. As they search for buried treasure in North Carolina, they're plagued by the quintessential issues that crop up in Hollywood's portrayal of teenage angst: drugs, romance, money, murder mysteries. The kids are all right, but are the kids even kids?

Although the characters are mostly said to be around 16 years old, the cast is (unsurprisingly) much older than that. This fact, of course, isn't exactly breaking new ground, since most actors who play teenagers tend to exceed the age of their characters by a pretty substantial number of years.

Read on to be shocked (or not) by the real ages of the Outer Banks cast.

Madelyn Cline as Sarah Cameron

JJ is five years younger than the actor who embodies him on our laptop and TV screens.

Drew Starkey as Rafe

Age on the show: 19

Age in real life: N/A

Somehow, amid the glittering tsunami of information that is the Internet, Starkey's real age isn't exactly known. However, since his character, Rafe, is 19 years old, it's almost safe to say that he's at least a few years older than that.

North is seven years older than Topper.

Julia Antonelli as Wheezie Cameron
