Not twins, but twins: brothers and sisters in the movies
Today we celebrate a double birthday: on this day, with a difference of 13 minutes, actors James and Oliver Phelps were born. How is it – you don’t know who they are? You know, you know! It’s just that we are better known to them under the names of Fred and George Weasley, the hooligan twins from the Harry Potter series of films (by the way, they also played Gideon and Fabian Pruett, members of the first Order of the Phoenix). Let’s see what other movie twins we can remember.
Ksenia and Polina Kutepovs
The sisters do not have a small joint filmography, and they often go on the stage together, playing at the same time not at all relatives. How at the same time they are distinguished by the audience – I do not know!
By the way, there is still such a curious coincidence. The film “Record” from the film project ILE DE BOTE “Because it’s Me” was shown at the 31st Moscow International Film Festival. The main role in the “Record”, as we recall, was played by Ksenia Kutepova. And the next in that show was the picture “Miracle” with the participation of Polina. So here – always together, always near.
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen
Although there is no “always together, always near” – it is rather about the Olsen sisters. Films in which they were shot individually are much less than those where the twins acted as a family contract. In addition, the sisters work together to produce fashion and beauty lines and run a film production company.
Vova and Yura Torsuev
Our Electronics, more precisely, Electronics and Seryozha Syroezhkin. Katya Kozhevnikova recently recalled them in an interesting article about where our childhood idols went, so I won’t repeat myself. I only note that the brothers also planned to pursue a further career for two, however, unlike the aforementioned sisters, they did not succeed.
Scarlett and Hunter Johansson
In general, the twin brother of the famous actress works in the team of US President Barack Obama and has nothing to do with cinema. However, one day he starred with his sister in one picture when they were 12 years old. In the film, Manny and Law, heroine girls (in fact, Manny and Law, whose names are put in the name) on the golf course watching a certain family. Scarlett’s real relatives played it: mom, dad, brother and sister Vanessa.
Jason and Justin Priestley
Jason Priestley should have had no trouble playing Brandon in the Beverly Hills 90120 series, the “male half” of the Walsh twins. After all, in real life he has a twin sister – Justine.
True, she did not star in Beverly Hills, but she appeared in several episodes of another popular series that was on TV in the same period of time.
And what other fraternal and sisterly unions (not necessarily “twin”) do you remember?
