There are many cases when one actor is simply not enough for one role, whether it’s for stunts or child labor laws. More often than we realize, producers are forced to use doubles or, in rare cases, hire an actors twin! We’re all familiar with how Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen rose to fame in the role of Michelle Tanner on Full House, and there are many others who’ve followed in their footsteps! Here’s a list of 12 roles you probably didn’t know were played by twins!
12. Emma Geller-Green – Friends
The adorable baby girl named Emma Geller-Green who showed up in the middle of season 9 on Friends was played by twins Noelle and Cali Sheldon. According to their mother, Gretchen Carpenter, they were treated like royalty on set! “Everyone was really, really nice to Noelle and Cali, and treated them like little princesses on the set,” she said. The twins are now teenagers and don’t remember any of their time on set, but they both agree that having Jennifer Aniston as an on-screen mom was pretty cool!
11. Harry Potter – Harry Potter & the Philosophers Stone
The actor who played the iconic role of Harry Potter in the film franchise wasn’t played by a twin, but the baby version of him was! The baby, or should we say babies who portrayed Potter as a child in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone were the Saunders’ triplets. Their exact names were never shared, but we do know the triplets consisted of one girl and two boys and they were all credited as one baby.
