Rachel's age?


Does anyone know how old Rachel is supposed to be? I could only find one mention and according to that wiki-esque page she's in her early 20s, which I find hard to believe. Quinn is in her 40s and they don't seem as far apart as twenty years. Both Shiri Appleby and the actress who played Rachel in Sequin Raze were born in 1978. So my guess is 34. However, Sarah Shapiro was 24-26 when she worked on Bachelor.

I'm guessing like in many shows or movies, they can make actors play characters older or younger than their actual age. I don't see the character Rachel being early 20s though, maybe late 20s if they're having Appleby play younger.

They've mentioned Rachel having years of experience so she seems like late 20s. Quinn seems like mid/late 30s. Mary who seems like late 30s was supposed to be 1 year older than Quinn.

There's no way Quinn is in her thirties.

Quinn said Mary was one year younger than she was, although the actress was 7 years younger than Constance Zimmer, who looks a good bit older than her listed age. I think Quinn was just lying about being close to Mary's age.

Zimmer is listed as 45 (although in close-ups, I think she looks closer to 55, perhaps smoking, too much sun, and no touch-up work done).

Quinn has to be at least Zimmer's age, because she got the call from the doctor in the episode before the finale, confirming she missed her chance to have children. I'm assuming, what with her affairs with Chet and Henry, that she'd been on the pill, and like some busy women, take it all the time to avoid the nuisance of menstruating, and didn't notice she was entering menopause.

Some women also reach menopause early. While it's usually about 50 or after, some women can reach it in their 40s.

reply

Mid 40s would not be unusual, but I was responding to a post that said she was in her mid to late 30s.

reply

Spoiler...

After Quinn went to the doctor, he told her that she can no longer have kids, so i think she should be in her mid-forties, early fifties (i presume due to menopause), imo

I always wondered about that too. According to this video Rachel was born in 1986. Which means the character is younger than Shiri.

In a season one episode Quinn said she was 42.

reply

Well there you go I was not that far off...from season 1, Quinn is late 30s/early 40s and Rachel is late 20s. Quinn absolutely does not look like she's in her 50s. Regardless of actual age or screen age I think they're both very beautiful.

I completely missed that I'd gotten replies so I apologize for the belated thank you's! Thank you for answering my question :)

Better late than never. Season 4 said Rachel was 32 and Quinn [spoiler]got pregnant[/spoiler]. I think Quinn is definitely late 40s [spoiler]but she hasn't had menopause yet.[/spoiler]
