Netflix has just blessed us with a second season of Umbrella Academy. It’s one of those shows where you can’t help but have a favourite cast member (it’s Klaus, isn’t it?) – so you’re probably frantically Googling the Umbrella Academy cast and everything you can possibly know about them: Their ages, Instagrams, other shows they’ve been in, the lot.
The Umbrella Academy is about a dysfunctional family of superheroes — The Monocle, Spaceboy, The Kraken, The Rumor, The Séance, The Boy, The Horror, and The White Violin. They work together to solve their father’s mysterious death. The series is based on the Dark Horse comic series by My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way.
In the show, the family members were born in 1989, which would make them all around 30-years-old. Here are the ages of the cast of Umbrella Academy in real life, and how it compares to how old their characters are.
