Celebrities Who Bring “Twinning” To A Whole New Level

The Olsen twins, the Sprouse twins, and even the Madden twins are typically the duos that come to mind when people think of celebrity twins. While those six people are pretty famous, there are stars in Hollywood and professional athletes who aren’t known for being “a twin.”

Actor Ashton Kutcher has a twin brother who’s a motivational speaker for cerebral palsy, while actress Parker Posey’s twin brother works as a lawyer. Of course, that doesn’t mean there aren’t twins who took the entertainment industry by storm. You’re just going to read to find out who!

Rami Malek And Sami Malek

While they look identical, Academy Award-winning actor Rami Malek and his identical twin brother Sami couldn’t be more different. While they obviously look strikingly similar, aside from Sami’s facial hair, the two brothers went on separate career paths.

Born four minutes earlier, Rami opted to try his hand in Hollywood. It obviously worked out in his favor, winning an Oscar for his role as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. Sami, on the other hand, is a teacher.

Brittany Daniel And Cynthia Daniel

If there’s anyone in Hollywood who takes the phrase “dynamic duo” and runs with it, it’s the Daniel twins, Brittany and Cynthia. First appearing together as the “Doublemint Twins” for the product Doublemint Gum, they went on to play sisters Liz and Jessica Wakefield in Sweet Valley High.

Before that television role, though, the Daniel twins were models, singing to their first agency at the young age of 11. Obviously, these two were meant to be in the industry!

Honestly, give them the same haircut, and Dan Heder could have been swapped out for his identical twin brother Jon in Napoleon Dynamite, and no one would have known any different.

It wouldn’t have been surprising, either, considering the twins were known to trade places with each other growing up. During an interview on The Late Show with David Letterman, Jon explained that he and Dan “caused a lot of trouble by pretending to be the other.”

Scarlett Johansson and Hunter Johansson

Academy Award nominated-actress Scarlett Johansson has a fraternal brother named Hunter. And while Scarlett is a huge name in Hollywood, being named one of the industry’s highest-paid actresses, her brother decided on something else for his life.

While his sister is high-profile, Hunter has led a pretty low-key life. In recent years, he’s worked on multiple political campaigns and has worked with organizations giving back to the community, including the Champions of Rockaway Hurricane Sandy Fundraiser in 2014.

Kiefer Sutherland And Rachel Sutherland

It’s safe to say being born into the Sutherland family means one day you’ll be brought into the “family business.” Only instead of the business being part of a crime family, it’s finding your place in Hollywood.

For twins Kiefer and Rachel, they found their respective places in front of and behind the camera. While Kiefer opted to take on acting, starring in series such as 24, his fraternal twin Rachel prefers staying behind the scenes, supervising post-production.

Deidre Hall And Andrea Hall

Identical twins Deidre Hall and Andrea Hall didn’t just go into acting together; they went into the same show. On the soap opera Days of Our Lives, Andrea plays Samantha Evans while Diedre plays Dr. Marlena Evans, her twin.

Interestingly, Diedre’s character sky-rocketed her to fame, even winning her various awards, including two Best Actress Soapy Awards. Andrea, on the other hand, didn’t win accolades for her performance. But she did portray a Marlena-lookalike on Days from 2000-2001.

Shawn Ashmore And Aaron Ashmore

Seriously, if Shawn and Aaron Ashmore had the same haircut and facial hair, they’d be hard-pressed to find anyone other than their immediate family who’d be able to tell them apart. The identical twins are both actors, having both had roles in the series Smallville.

Apparently, the twins have an affinity for the supernatural since Shawn is probably best known for his role as Iceman in the X-Man franchise while Aaron played a human polygraph in the SyFy series Warehouse 13.

Aaron Carter And Angel Carter

Known for his time as a solo artist and for being the younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, one thing people don’t really know about Aaron Carter is that he has a twin sister, Angel.

And while Aaron went the music route, most likely due to his older brother’s influence, Angel decided to do something a bit different in Hollywood. Angel decided to go into the modeling industry. Of course, she tried her hand in music a time or two. Hey, it runs in the family!

Linda Hamilton And Leslie Hamilton

Known for her role of Sara Connor in The Terminator, many don’t know that actress Linda Hamilton actually had an identical twin sister, Leslie. And while Leslie was a nurse and not an actress, she stepped in as her sisters double in three scenes of Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

In the movie, Linda plays the “in focus close-ups of Sara,” and Leslie would stand-in during the shots further away. Unfortunately, Leslie passed away in 2020.

Parker Posey And Christopher Posey

Best in Show actress Parker Posey has a fraternal twin brother, Christopher. But while Parker enjoys being in front of the camera, working on multiple improvisational mockumentary movies with stars such as Jane Lynch, Catherine O’Hara, and Eugene Levy, Christopher opted to stay out of Hollywood.

Instead, Christopher went to law school, becoming an attorney in Georgia. Even though they took two different paths in life, it’s obvious to any who see them together, they are very supportive of one another.

Benji Madden And Joel Madden

The tattooed twins of the rock band Good Charlotte have dated some big names in Hollywood, including Hilary Duff and Paris Hilton. Of course, Benji and Joel Madden have since settled down.

Benji has been married to former actress Cameron Diaz since 2015. In 2019, the two welcomed their first child into the family. Joel, on the other hand, has been married to Nicole Richie since 2010, having two children with the television personality.

Vin Diesel And Paul Diesel

Something a lot of people don’t know about the Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel is that he actually has a twin brother, Paul. And, get this, Paul has hair! But that’s not the only difference between these two.

While Vin went on to become a blockbuster sensation, Paul decided to stay out of the spotlight. Instead of being in front of the camera, Paul works behind-the-scenes as a film editor.

Dylan Sprouse And Cole Sprouse

Identical twins Dylan and Cole Sprouse got their start in Hollywood playing the same character, Julian McGrath, in Big Daddy. From there, they got their own characters in the Disney Channel series The Suite Life of Zach & Cody.

After years of performing on the same set, the Sprouse twins went their separate ways. Cole went on to Riverdale fame while Dylan was a bit quieter, only recently coming out of the woodwork to Trevor in the 2020 film After We Collide.

Giovanni Ribisi And Marissa Ribisi

The Ribisi twins, Giovanni and Marissa, were born on December 17, 1974. Unlike many other twins on this list, these twins decided they both wanted a career in front of the camera.

Getting her start as an unknown actress on the comedy Dazed and Confused, Marissa has since appeared on multiple television shows, including Friends and Grace Under Fire. On the other hand, Giovanni strayed towards film, appearing in huge hits such as Avatar, Saving Private Ryan, and A Million Ways to Die in the West.

Ashton Kutcher And Michael Kutcher

Actor Ashton Kutcher, probably best known for his role as Kelso in That ’70s Show and various comedic films, actually has a fraternal twin brother, Michael. When he was a child, Michael was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, a motor disability that weakens a person’s muscles.

He now works as a motivational speaker for the Cerebral Palsy Foundation and as an advocate for organ donation. The two brothers have been seen on a few red carpets together.

Barbara Bush And Jenna Bush

Even though they look more like distant cousins than sisters, Barbara and Jenna Bush are, in fact, fraternal twins. They might not be in Hollywood, but the Bush twins have done very well for themselves.

Barbara graduated from Yale in 2004 and is the co-founder of Global Health Corps, a non-profit organization that supports up-and-coming global health leaders. Jenna is the co-host of the NBC morning news program Today with Hoda & Jenna.

Gisele Bündchen And Patricia Bündchen

Coming from a large family of five girls, Gisele Bündchen and Patricia Bündchen are the lucky two who can call themselves twins. Growing up, both Gisele and Patricia were thrown into the modeling world, but only the former gained recognition. Patricia was fine with it though, preferring to work as her sister’s manager behind-the-scenes,

As fraternal twins, the two Bündchen girls look similar but have distinctly different faces. But one thing is certain; good looks definitely run in the Brazilian family!

Charlotte Ronson And Samantha Ronson

There is no shortage of success when it comes to fraternal twins Charlotte Ronson and Samantha Ronson. While the former sister is a fashion designer, the latter is a DJ who dated the likes of Lindsay Lohan.

And that isn’t where the talent ends in this family! The twin’s older brother, Mark, is a very well-known producer in the music industry. Most recently, he helped produce the Bruno Mars hit “Uptown Funk.”

Tia Mowry And Tamera Mowry

Twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry gained national recognition in the sitcom Sister, Sister, a series about two twins separated a birth only to find each other later in life. But that wasn’t the only project the two worked on together.

They also starred alongside each other in the Disney Channel original movie Twitches and the comedy Seventeen Again. In more recent years, the Mowry twins have gone their separate ways, with Tia starring in the Netflix comedy series Family Reunion and Tamera co-hosting the talk show The Real.

Tiki Barber And Ronde Barber

While the NFL isn’t a stranger to football star siblings, football star twins are something else altogether! But for Tiki Barber and Ronde Barber, it’s just another day. Although they’re both retired, both Barber brothers once played for elite franchises.

Tiki is a former New York Giant and Ronde spent his 16-year career as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer. Now, both brothers traded in their pads for seats in front of the camera as sports broadcasters.

José Canseco And Ozzie Canseco

José Canseco and Ozzie Canseco are two huge names in baseball, and, unfortunately, it’s not for their batting average. At one point, José was up there as one of the best in the game, establishing himself as a solid power-hitter.

And while that’s all well and good, he also established himself as a supporter of the ol’ twin switcheroo. Being identical twins, José and Ozzie got in a bit of trouble with the league after it was found out Ozzie stepped in for his brother at a celebrity boxing match. Whoops.

James Phelps And Oliver Phelps

The magical twin presence of James Phelps and Oliver Phelps came to the silver screen in 2001 as the red-haired fun-loving twins Fred and George Weasley in Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone.

They might not have had a large role in the first film, but their parts got bigger and bigger as the series went on, ultimately becoming a fan favorite. The Phelps twins might not have been a favorite on set, though, since they routinely swapped roles, resulting in more than one reshoot!

Elvis Presley And Jesse Presley

Although a lot is known about The King, Elvis Presley, there is one aspect of his life many didn’t know about — his twin brother, Jesse. Born on January 8, 1935, Jesse was born 35 minutes prior to the rock singer.

Sadly, he was stillborn. Elvis didn’t spend much of his career speaking of his brother. But his mother had been quoted saying Elvis possessed the energy of two people. Perhaps Jesse was with him all along.

Joseph Fiennes And Jacob Fiennes

Younger brothers to actor Ralph Fiennes, twins Joseph and Jacob decided to go their separate ways when it came to their careers. Joseph opted to follow in his older brother’s footsteps, becoming an actor and appearing in multiple noteworthy shows, including American Horror Story and Handmaid’s Tale.

Jacob, on the other hand, opted to do something completely different with his life. Instead of going to Hollywood, this twin became an environmental conservationist!

Mary-Kate Olsen And Ashley Olsen

Starting off in Hollywood while they were still in diapers, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen have gone from child stars to successful businesswomen. Probably two of the most well-known celebrity twins, these two got their start on the sitcom Full House before moving on to their own film franchise.

But they weren’t destined for a career in front of the camera, moving on towards a career in fashion as well as production through their company Dualstar.

Laverne Cox And M. Lamar

Fraternal twins Laverne Cox and M. Lamar both found fame in different parts of the entertainment industry. Laverne’s claim to fame came from portraying transgender inmate Sophia Burset in Orange is the New Black.

Interestingly, her twin, M. Lamar, played the role of Sophia in flashbacks before her transition. But he has a successful career by himself, creating art that has been described by The New York Times as “a bracing alternative to the dispiriting traffic in blandly competent art clogging the New York gallery system.”

Best known for playing twin toddlers Nicky and Alex Katsopolis on Full House, Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit And Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit both reprised their roles in the spin-off series Fuller House. And while it’s awesome to be known for a specific set of on-screen twins, the real-life twins are so much more.

They’ve both found a passion for sound work, having worked on projects such as Game of Thrones and Castle Rock. Dylan was even honored with an Emmy Award for Outstanding Sound Editing for the former series!

Liz Sagal And Jean Sagal

While their sister Katy Sagal might be a more well-known actress, twins Liz Sagal and Jean Sagal made their own splash in Hollywood during the ’80s. From 1984-1985, both Liz and Jean starred alongside one another in the comedy series Double Trouble.

From there, Liz appeared in blockbuster films such as Flashdance and Grease 2. On the other hand, Liz stuck with television, appearing in shows like Quantum Leap, 21 Jump Street, and Knots Landing.

Olly Murs And Ben Murs

Unfortunately, for twins Olly and Ben Murs, they haven’t spoken in quite some time. Although he did place second in the sixth season of the X Factor in 2009, Olly skipped his own twin’s wedding because the competition show was filming on the same day.

As it turned out, Ben wasn’t overly thrilled with Olly, changing his number and distancing himself from the family after his nuptials. Olly, on the other hand, still works in the music industry, most recently as a coach on The Voice UK.

Jill Hennessy And Jacqueline Hennessy

Canadian twins Jill Hennessy and Jacqueline Hennessy both went into the entertainment industry, just in different parts of the world. While Jill decided to try her in Hollywood, Jacqueline stayed in Canada, becoming a television host for Medical Intelligence, a current affairs program in Toronto.

On the other hand, her identical twin sister, Jill, is probably best known for her Law & Order character Claire Kincaid, whom she plays for a solid three seasons.

Jason London And Jeremy London

Identical twins Jason and Jeremy London were born on November 7, 1972, in San Diego, California. And while a lot of siblings take different paths in life, these twins both headed straight to Hollywood.

Typecast as the bad boys, both Jason and Jeremy portrayed some cult favorites, including Randall “Pink” Floyd in Dazed and Confused and Chandler Hampton in 7th Heaven, respectively. Unfortunately, they haven’t been in anything noteworthy for some time.

Nicholas Brendon And Kelly Donovan

They might not have the same last name in their professional lives, but that doesn’t make Nicholas Brendon and Kelly Donovan any less identical. Older by a solid three minutes, Nicholas is known for a few different roles in television, namely as Kevin Lynch in Criminal Minds and Xander Harris in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Kelly isn’t as well-known of an actor, but he’s still has a few credits to his name, including Riches P.A. in the 2002 film Roads to Riches.

Siva Kaneswaran And Kumar Kaneswaran

Siva Kaneswaran might be part of the boy band The Wanted, but if he ever felt too tired to appear on the red carpet, his identical twin Kumar could 100 percent take his place. Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, the Kaneswaran twins were two of seven children, all of whom they are close with.

And while Siva is in a band, that doesn’t mean he hasn’t tried his hand in other aspects of entertainment. The twins actually appear together in the 2008 film Rock Rivals.

Monique Lamoureux And Jocelyne Lamoureux

They might not be actresses in Hollywood, but identical twins Monique Lamoureux and Jocelyne Lamoureux know all about being stars on the ice. These twins are incredible ice hockey players, both being essential team members for Team USA during the 2018 Winter Olympics.

During the finals, Monique scored the tying goal against Canada, with Jocelyne scoring the game-winning shot during the shootout, resulting in a gold medal for Team USA. After the games, both players announced they were pregnant. Talk about doing everything together!

Albert and Allen Hughes, aka the Hughes Brothers, are all about co-directing some dramatically violent films. Their resume includes The Book of Eli, Dead Presidents, and American Pimp, to name a few.

The twins were very much into making films from a young age, with their mom giving them their first camera at the age of 12. They wound up dropping out of high school and making videos for Tupac Shakur and Tone Loc. Their shift to film came later in their career.

Charles Carver And Max Carver

Born seven minutes apart, Charles and Max Carver are never far from one another in their professional lives. Growing up to be actors, the Carver twins have appeared alongside each other as twins in several series, including Teen Wolf, Desperate Housewives, and The Leftovers.

Of course, that doesn’t mean they haven’t worked on projects independently. Charles has also appeared on the Broadway stage in Boys in the Band and its 2020 film adaptation, while Max’s most recent credit is for an unknown role in The Batman.

Bryan Kirkwood And Denny Kirkwood

Born in Olympia, Washington, Bryan Kirkwood And Denny Kirkwood packed their bags and moved to Hollywood to pursue acting after college. Denny had quite the breakout role, appearing opposite Drew Barrymore in the comedy film Never Been Kissed.

And while the twins landed roles in various television series, including Lois and Clark, The Nanny, and Weird Science, it wasn’t until Bryan landed the role of Ben in One World, with Denny guest-starring multiple times, that they became well-known actors.

Trey And Trevor Eason

As of 2019, twins Trey and Trevor Eason are new to the Hollywood scene. Born and raised in Wilmington, North Carolina, these two boys aspired to be in front of the camera. But they didn’t pursue anything until they were halfway through their twenties.

Even so, they landed to roles of evil bullying stepbrother Martain and Luther Hobart opposite the likes of Gwenyth Paltrow and Ben Platt in the Ryan Murphy Netflix series The Politician.

Businesswomen Malika Haqq And Khadijah Haqq can typically be seen hovering around the Kardashian’s since they appear on Keeping up with the Kardashians on more than one occasion.

Of course, they’re known for more than the reality show. The twins are actually best known for their role in the Disney movie Sky High. In the film, both of them play Penny Lent, a superhero who can duplicate herself into multiple “Penny’s;” fitting!

Paul Vogt And Peter Allen Vogt

Paul Vogt And Peter Allen Vogt are two twins who are known for similar and yet different reasons. Paul is known for his impersonations and comedy, both of which are showcased on The Big Gay Sketch Show.

Peter Allen, on the other hand, is more known for appearing alongside his bother in projects like Hannah Montana, the Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, as well as episodes of Arrested Development.

Judy Reyes and Joselin Reyes are both actors, best known for their respective roles as Carla Espinoza in Scrubs and as a paramedic on Law & Order. Aside from those roles, Judy has recently been part of the TNT crime comedy-drama Claws cast, playing Annalise “Quiet Ann” Zayas.

Joselin has also been busy in recent years, working on various film and television projects. Most recently, she’s played the role of Maite in the Starz series P-Valley.

Randy Sklar And Jason Sklar

Identical twin sportscasters and comedians Randy and Jason Sklar are better known as the “Sklar Brothers.” Early in their career, the Sklar Brothers hosted Cheap Seats, a show highlighting memorably odd sporting events throughout history.

Most recently, though, they’ve taken a step back from ESPN and moved over to the History Channel, hosting a show called the United States of America. They also host their own podcast called Sklarbro Country. Clearly, these two twins found the key to success is sticking together.

Stephen Quay And Timothy Quay

Stephen and Timothy Quay make up the duo of the Brothers Quay or the Quay Brothers, professional stop-motion animators. Their style is comprised of puppets in dark, moody settings, much like the Polish and Czech animators who influenced their art.

And while their most popular film is arguably Street of Crocodiles, people outside of the film world most likely haven’t heard of it. Instead, people are probably more familiar with their work on bigger budgeted films, such as the animation sequences in the movie Frida.

Kristina Shannon And Karissa Shannon

Twins Kristina and Karissa Shannon are probably best known for their time as Hugh Hefner’s “girlfriends” on the reality show Girls Next Door. Their first episode on the show attracted 2.4 million viewers, the most in the series history.

While most of their work revolves around Playboy, the Shannon twins did have a small part in the 2010 drama Somewhere. The film wound up getting top honors at the 67th Venice International Film Festival.

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, or the Winklevi, are two of the biggest names in technology, having allegedly come up with the idea for Facebook before Mark Zuckerberg. Being the smart guys they are, they rebounded quite fast.

The twins are now involved with the bitcoin payment processer BitInstant. But their brains aren’t their only strong muscle. Cameron and Tyler also competed in men’s pair rowing at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games.

First off, Gary and Larry Lane’s parents must have had a sick sense of humor to name their identical twins with rhyming names. The good news is they’re good-looking, and they were able to step away from the goofiness and into the modeling industry.

Eventually, Gary and Larry also branched off into acting, appearing in films such as Zoolander and popular television series like Dawson’s Creek. They are probably best known for the 2012 film Hollywood to Dollywood, a movie they co-produced and won 24 festival awards.

Diane Klimaszewski And Elaine Klimaszewski

Polish American models and actresses Diane and Elaine Klimaszewski are probably best known as “The Coors Light Twins.” Making their television debut in 1987 as teen dancers on Star Search, the Klimaszewski twins moved on to become some of the most recognizable faces in commercial television.

Not only did they give Coors Light one of the “the highest-scoring spots in Coors history,” but they became something of a popular culture icon. They were even parodied by Rachel Dratch and Jennifer Garner on Saturday Night Live!

Kelley Deal And Kim Deal

Alternative rocker twins Kelley and Kim Deal are musicians in the band The Breeders. Kelley is the lead guitarist and co-vocalist, while Kim came in as the bassist and lead vocalist after leaving The Pixies.

The Breeders have opened for some big-named bands in their time, including Nirvana. THey’ve also landed spots in the lineup at major festivals, including a tiny stage at Lollapalooza in 1994, Coachella in 2004, and then headlining at Lollapalooza in 2005.

Songwriters and multi-instrumentalist twins Tegan and Sara Quinn are the duo behind the Canadian pop group Tegan and Sara. As of 2020, the duo has released nine EPs, even gaining a Grammy nomination in 2012 for their DVD live album Get Along.

2019 was a big year for the twins. First, they released their ninth studio album, Hey, I’m Just Like You, as well as their memoir, titled, High School.

Shane and Sia Barbi, aka the Barbi Twins, began their modeling careers at the young age of seven for a mail-order Sears catalog. It didn’t take long for them to be catapulted to international stardom; all it took was a billboard on Sunset Boulevard!

From there, they caught the attention of Hugh Hefner, posing for Playboy for a few years. Aside from their modeling, though, the twins are huge animal rights activists,

One of the most successful pop-rock groups of all time is the Bee Gees, a band consisting of three brothers, Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. While they certainly aren’t identical, the latter two brothers are actually twins.

In the band, Maurice focused on fine-tuning and backing up vocal harmonies while playing various instruments. Robin, on the other hand, played multiple keyboards for the band, while his clear vibrato vocals were the “it factor” of their earlier hits.

Didem Balık And Sinem Balık

They might not be in Hollywood, but Didem and Sinem Balık are still some fantastical twins in the entertainment industry. Better known as The Opera Twins, Didem and Sinem are a famous opera act.

Older by a solid five minutes, Didem is a mezzo-soprano while her younger twin sister is a soprano. Of course, their vocal talents aren’t only utilized at the opera. The twins also sing in Broadway plays as well as Italian Neapolitans.

Male models Kyle and Lane Carlson were “found” as most good up-and-coming acts are – in the mall! After Lane was spotted, the two quickly fell into the lap of an agent from Elite Model Management, one of the world’s top-tier agencies.

From there, they began modeling for Abercrombie and Fitch, Armani, Out magazine, Calvin Klein, and A&F Quarterly. These two might also look familiar from the NBC show Fear Factor, where Lane was once a contestant.

Ethan Dolan And Grayson Dolan

Unlike the other twins on this list, Ethan and Grayson Dolan found fame in a very unconventional way, on the social media video-sharing platform Vine. In 2013, one of their videos went viral, and, as they say, the rest is history.

Since 2015, the twins have been signed with AwesomenessTV and have 11 million subscribers on their YouTube channel and over 6.4 million followers on Vine. In 2019, they announced they were planning on changing the content of their channel.

In Los Angeles, anything’s possible. Even if that anything is making a career out of being a psychic, well, that’s exactly what Linda and Terry Jamison did for their careers. The twins have claimed to channel dead celebrities’ spirits, such as Natalie Wood and Princess Diana, and even “predicted” future historical events.

Of course, many people don’t believe in the twin’s supernatural abilities. And it probably doesn’t help that their predictions are published in nothing more than tabloid magazines.

Lee Wilde And Lyn Wilde

The Wild Twins, Lee and Lyn, were two blonde beauties from the 1940s. As singers and actresses, Lee and Lyn performed with the likes of the Charlie Barnet Band as well as in the film Juke Box Jenny.

One of their more well-known appearances, though, was in the Judy Garland film Presenting Lily Mars. Ironically, the twins wound up marrying brothers, Jim and Tom Cathcart. Unfortunately, their husbands were not twins (missed opportunity, ladies!).

Milly Rosso And Becky Rosso

Milly and Becky Rosso got a strange start to their short stint in Hollywood. During a live taping of The Suite Life of Zach and Cody, the twins were picked out of the audience by the producer. Shortly after, they were given guest appearances on the show.

From there, they starred in the Reese Witherspoon straight-to-video movie Legally Blondes. Like most Disney Channel stars, the Rosso twins also dabbled in music, forming the girl group The Rosso Sisters alongside their other sisters Georgina and Lola.

Lindsay and Sidney Greenbush are arguably best known for their roles in Little House on the Prairie. In the show, the twins alternate screen time playing Carrie Ingalls, with their credit reading Lindsay Sidney Greenbush during the opening sequence.

The credit had people believe the little girl was played by one actress and not two. After a few rounds of commercials for companies like Doublemint Gum, the twins opted to step back from acting and focus on being kids.

The Harp Twins Camille and Kennerly Kitt have recorded over 50 singles, releasing them both online and in four physical albums. They often arrange contemporary pieces from artists such as Lady Gaga, Pink Floyd, Coldplay, and Rhianna.

Not too surprisingly, their YouTube Channel is very popular, with over 25 million views for their numerous videos. They play both an electric lever harp as well as classic concert grand pedal harps in their videos.
