11 TV Teens Who Definitely Aren't Teens Anymore

19 August 2016 10:53 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It's so hard to be a teenager.

It's even harder to be a teenager when an actor, well into their '20s or '30s, is still tapping into those angsty teen emotions.

We get it.

A lot of TV studios cast actors who are older than the characters they play.

But what about those actors who've ended up playing a teenager for several seasons of television?

Here are just a few TV teens who are actually well-past high school.

1. Stefan Salvatore - The Vampire Diaries Paul Wesley has been playing Stefan Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries for 8 years. While Stefan is eternally 17, Wesley himself is in his '30s. 2. Scott McCall - Teen Wolf Teen Wolf, you say? Tyler Posey, who's played teenage werewolf Scott since the beginning of the series, is actually 25. 3. Spencer Hastings - Pretty Little Liars The lying teens may have had a recent time jump into the future, »

The Flash Season 3: Ashley Rickards Joins as Villain "The Top"

18 August 2016 1:36 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Well, this is awkward.

Awkward's Ashley Rickards will be joining The Flash Season 3 as Rosalind "Rosa" Dillon aka The Top on the fourth episode. 

What's so awkward about that, you ask? In the comics, this member of the Rogues Gallery is Rosco Dillon, so Rickards will be putting a feminine touch on an otherwise male character. Awesome!!

Rosa is known as the Bonnie to Mirror Master's Clyde. Mirror Master will be portrayed by the already announced Grey Damon in the episode.

So what are the powers of a villain with a name like "The Top"? 

I don't want to know how this works, but she has the ability to make your head spin. Do you think that's literal or figurative?

It would be one thing to give someone the spins, but to literally spin their head around on their neck? 

Well, I don't think they'd last long. Ouch.

Don't forget, »

18 August 2016 12:11 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

E! News is reporting that The Flash has cast Ashley Rickards as Rosalind "Rosa" Dillion a.k.a. The Top and she'll make her debut as the extremely dangerous DC Comics villain in the fourth episode of the upcoming third season.  Rickards' iteration will be a new take on The Top, a male character in the comics, but she'll retain the same metahuman abilities, which are to make people's heads spin. Her version will also likely share a fairly intimate relationship with Grey Damon's Mirror Master as she's being teased as the Bonnie to his Clyde. Rickards is best known for her lead role as Jenna Hamilton on MTV's comedy drama series Awkward and has also guest-starred on episodes of Zoey 101, Ugly Betty, One Tree Hill, Entourage, and American Horror Story: Murder House. Her film credits include Fly Away, Sassy PantsA Haunted House 2, and Behaving Badly. »
