Narnia Actors Doubling for Different Roles?

Narnia actors that could double for different roles? Only a few. As long as it helped the story and didn’t mess with continuity. Here are some examples at the top of my head:

Young CASPIAN actor from PC = Young Rilian actor  from SC (different hair color).

 - I’m going to assume that The Lady from SC is a shapeshifter of sorts. - 

Ranandu’s daughter Actress from VDT = younger Green lady actress in the garden from SC (different hair color). Yeah, creepy.

A Nyad actress from PC = The Queen of Underland actress from SC (if the Lady is a corrupt nyad).

Older Rilian Actor = Adult Tirian actor (different hair & beard).

Aslan = the Lamb.

Weird examples, but there it is. Thanks!

In a way, if an actor played more roles in a production, it would probably decrease the link between those characters in an audience's mind. A long time ago, a friend of mine wrote a play which he performed at the Greenbelt Festival in England where he played all the male characters and a young woman played all the female ones, and that was the premise of the play - people didn't think that all the characters were connected because they were played by the same two people.
