Kris Marshall who played Nick Harper was 7 years older than the character he played. Also, Daniela Danby-Ashe was 6 years older than her character.

Other than My Family, you can see Zoe Wannamaker (Susan Harper) in such films as Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and the more recent TV drama Mr. Selfridge.
Between the first and second series, the house design and layout change massively.
As of 2011, My Family was one of only twelve British sitcoms to pass the 100 episode mark.
My Family was the most watched sitcom in the United Kingdom in 2008.
My Family’s long success can be widely attributed to its use of employing a wider number of writers to brainstorm jokes for each episode as opposed to the traditional method of only having 1 or 2. This allowed for a more consistent product to be generated without having to wait for a single writer to produce more material.
