But in the drama Gin's actor look way older which made me wonder if he is meant to be quite old-ish?

Well, Shuichi in current time should be around 35, which I wouldn't have guessed from his appearance, so it might be bit difficult to estimate for Gin. But yeah, I would've guessed him into around that same age group, mid thirties.

Look at Rei. Does he look like a 29 yo man? He looks like 22 yo at max. Gin must be around 40.

tbh Japanese and chinese people, you can't determine their ages easily.! Wonder what do they do or eat.

Yikes, considering how suggestive Aoyama has been considering Shiho's and Gin's relation and her being 18-20, Gin being anything older than 35 would be gross.

@gindandjuice: We don't know exactly what that "relation" was to begin with. It could be mere harassment but maybe there never was any "physical" thing. Haibara fearing Gin could be because of his ruthless nature and Gin imaging her naked could be a display of his obsessive behavior, maybe because he hasn't gotten to "finish" her off.

Yeah, by relation I didn't mean that they must've had anything emotional or physical going on, but the mere obsession (especially for someone who seem quite calm and non-caring) and imagining her naked is enough to make it gross if he's old.
