I’ve thought this. An actor goes from being a love interest, to the parent, to the old person. I’m sure it’s weird for them the first time they land a role for a character that is in the next “age bracket”

But what happens when they *actually* die of old age during the act? Do they keep the scene for realism or throw it out to avoid suspicion?
