How Old The Smallville Cast Was Compared To Their Characters

The DC TV show Smallville tells a sprawling Superman origin story over the course 10 years. Unusual for most Superman adaptations, Smallville is not a Superman TV show, per se, but a saga of the journey Clark Kent (Tom Welling) takes to becoming the Man of Steel. This means that Welling's Clark Kent is one of the youngest live-action versions of the character ever portrayed, with Smallville first beginning during his freshman year of high school and abiding a "no tights, no flights" rule for most of the show.
