Age Differences between Casts

UPDATED 7/12/16 6:30 PM EST
Requested by fan Frederick, in this post I will note the age differences between the Power Rangers in each cast. Most actors are between the ages of 18 and 28, some have been in their thirties. And the original cast are entering their forties. Most cast members only have 2 to 5 years in difference within the cast.

When MMPR was shot in 1993, Amy Jo Johnson (Kim) was 22; Austin St. John (Jason) was 17; Thuy Trang (Trini) was 19; Walter Jones (Zack) was 22; and David Yost (Billy) was the eldest at 24. When Jason David Frank (Tommy) joined the cast, he was 20. David Yost had a 7 year difference from Austin St. John, the youngest. Paul Schrier was 23, he is a year younger than David. Jason Narvy was 19, 2 years older than Austin.

In season 2 when Johnny Yong Bosch (Adam) joined the cast, he was 18; Steve Cardenas (Rocky) was 20; and Karan Ashley (Aisha) was 19. David (25) and Johnny had a six year age difference. Amy Jo was 24; David was 25 and Jason was 21. By Season 3, Jason was 22; David was 26; Steve was 21; Johnny was 19 and Karan was 20 and Catherine Sutherland (Kat) was 21 when she joined the cast. Steve is 5 months older than Catherine.

Aquitar (Alien) Rangers: Karim Prince (Cestro) was born in 1974 and was 21 in 1995. Alan Palmer (Corcus) looks to be in his 40's now, so I suppose he was in his late 20's during this time. Same goes for David Bacon (Aurico). I am not sure about Rajia Baroudi (Delphine) or Tideus' actor Jim Gray.

By Zeo, Jason was 22, David was 27, Steve was 22, Johnny was 20, Catherine was 21 and Nakia Burrise (Tanya) was 21. David Yost has a six year difference with Nakia. When Austin St. John (Jason) was added, he was 21. Catherine is 11 months older than Austin. I don't know how old the triplets that played Trey are.

 Blake Foster (Justin) was 11, he was born in 1985 and he is now 26. Jason was 22 and later 23, Jason is about 12 years older than Blake. Johnny is 9 years older and Catherine and Nakia are about 11 years older. Hilary Shepard Turner (Divatox) was born in 1961, at the time she was 35, she was 12 years older than Jason David Frank and 24 years older than Blake. Carol Hoyt (Dimitria/Divatox) was 34 at the time. As for the new cast, Patricia Ja Lee (Cassie) was 22; Selwyn Ward (TJ) was 20; Roger Velasco (Carlos) was 20; and Tracy Lynn Cruz (Ashley) was 21. The eldest was Patricia and she is around 10 years older than Blake.

For Space, Christopher Lee (Andros) was 20, Patricia was 23, Selwyn was 21, Roger was 21 and Tracy was 22, Justin Nimmo (Justin) was 24 and Melody Perkins (Astronema) was 24. Justin Nimmo is 4 years older than Christopher. Melody is 8 months older than Justin Nimmo. Jason David Frank is 5 years older than Christopher Lee. Selwyn was a year older than Christopher. Paul Schrier was 28 and Jason Narvy was 24, 2 months younger than Melody.

Ricardo Medina (Deker) being born in 1977, he is now 34. Paul Schrier, born in 1970 is 41. Felix Ryan (Spike) is 21. I don't know how old Steven Skylar (Antonio) is but most likely he is between 21 and 26. The youngest is Felix and Paul is 20 years older. Ricardo is 13 years older than Alex. OMG, Paul could be Alex and Felix's dad! Not Najee's dad, because that would be 15 year difference, well, who knows. Alex was born in February of 1990 and Felix in July, making Felix 5 months younger.

Megaoforce: Andrew Gray was born in 1987 and was 26 in 2013. Ciara Hanna was born in 1991 and was 22 in 2013. John Mark Loudermilk was also 22, five months younger than Ciara.

Yoshua Sudarso was born in 1989 and was 26 in 2015.  James Davies was born in 1989 and was 26 as well. James is a month older than Yoshi. Michael Taber was born in 1994 and was 21 in 2015. Davi Santos was born in 1991 and was 25 in 2015. Claire Blackwelder was also born in 1993 like Camile and was 22 as well, making it funny her character is supposed to be older.

Ryan Carter (Heckyl) was born in 1992 and was 23 at the time of filming in 2015.  Arthur Ranford (Albert) was born in 1948, making him the oldest Power Ranger actor at the time at age 67. 

Of the main seven, the oldest is James Davies and the youngest Michael Taber, being 5 years apart. Arthur Ranford is 41 years older than James and 46 years older than Michael Taber. Ryan Carter who plays villain Heckyl is 3 years younger than James Davies and 2 years older than Michael. Jarred is about the same age as Davi Santos just like Camile and Claire are only a few months apart. I can't find an age on Reuben Turner (James) but he can't be that much older than Brennan. According to Rangerwiki (, Reuben was 28 at the time of shooting, making him only three years older than Brennan and about 2 years older than James Davies and 39 years younger than Arthur Ranford.

Haha you are awesome! I liked this post. I was surprised at some of their ages. I had no idea "BILLY" and "CAM" were so old at the time of their season! I also would've never guessed that Amy Jo that old during filming. Melanie Vallejo was also a surprise being 27?! She looks like she is the younger of the two between her and Angie! Thanks for the post.

Oh and on the subject of Paul being Erika's dad... It is possible... Have you seen 16 and pregnant? lol

thanks again

Well, of course Paul could be Felix's dad, considering the character he's playing ;)

Trip, from Time Force, was probably the earliest time I may have sort of projected my attraction to men. I used to think there was something different about him as a kid, something I didn't fully understand.

each season that had sibling rangers its funny how the actor that protrayed the older sibilng in the show was actully the youngest in real life.

PRLG:Danny Salvin was 26; Russell Lawrence (Mike) was 21

PRLR:Alison Macinnis (Dana) was 20Fisher (Ryan) was 20, 2 months younger than Alison

PRNS:Jorgito Vargas Jr. (Blake) was 26 and Adam Tuominen (Hunter) was 23 (hunter always seemed like he was older than blake )

PRMF:Angie Diaz (Vida) was 18;Melanie Vallejo (Madison) was 27

i also thought when they did casting for Samauri that they had an age limit on the actors playing rangers. thought no one over 23.
