the dream is upside down

She has to take part in everything that happens. Rather strange if you remember that at first she is not even ten.
It becomes a problem if the series takes place over decades. What are they supposed to do? Change faces again and again? Let the same actress play the character when she is 20 ( and sometimes even 10) and when she is 60?
Empress Chunchu has two actresses. One for when she was very young. 17-18 maybe? Old enough to marry, but young enough to be still treated as a child in some ways at home. Ten around ten years pass and suddenly the actress is 40. It felt kind of abrupt.
The taiga drama I mentioned - Gou - Himetachi no Sengoku is especially weird with the ages. the actress for Gou is around 25, the one for her her eldest sister is almost 40. I checked the dates and when they first appear, Gou was historically 6 and chacha was 10 :o. And Gou kept writing to uncle Nobunaga and asking why he ordered Tokugawa Ieyasu to kill his wife and son. Do six-year-olds act like that? I'm sure eventually the characters will look their age, now it is just bizarre.
