I want to be besties with all of them


Geek Girl has finally been made into a Netflix series, although some of the cast ages might take you by surprise. The show is based on the books of the same name, and if you were born around the early 200s there is a 90 per cent chance you would have read them growing up. Most likely imagining you would also be miraculously scouted to be a model whilst wandering around Tesco with your mum.

The series follows awkward high schooler Harriet Manners who is your typical introverted teenager who gets spotted by a London model agent during a field trip. There are a lot of familiar faces who appear in Geek Girl, some of which have been in some other iconic Netflix series, but what are the cast ages in real life? Let’s find out!
