What Happened to 8 Twins That Were Famous in the Past


In just the blink of an eye, the buzz surrounding twins in cinema and show business will build the idols of millions of individuals. Yet their fame disappears in some cases, and they soon become unpopular and vanish from public view. And what happens to them after that is fascinating.

Peter and David, twin bodybuilders, were well-known in the 1990s. They have recognised thanks to their physical shape, and they acted in 12 movies even though they had no acting skills.

But there was a slowdown in the excitement around the charismatic guys, and Peter and David vanished from world cinema. Peter has been hosting his own show since 2005. And David became a photographer by profession.

The Phelps brothers are another example of individuals who just got lucky in an acting profession. They played the roles of Fred and George Weasley in Harry Potter, and for years to come, they would probably be synonymous with these pictures.

At this point, there are no more well-known positions in their lives, but they are still committed to their careers. The Phelps had some unremarkable roles, in addition to the Harry Potter movies. And the fascinating thing is, they still work together.

Oliver originally decided to become a professional golfer prior to his acting career and both brothers still enjoy the sport. George is also interested in music and dreams that someday he will play a bad guy in a James Bond movie.

6. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

Almost since their birth, these cute girls have been stars. They were interested in the Full House series when Mary-Kate and Ashley were only 9 months of age. Later, the sisters were discovered by filmmakers and began writing scripts for feature films: To Grandmother’s House We Go, It Takes Two, Passport to Paris, etc.

When New York Minute struggled at the box office, their movie career ended in 2004. The kids, thankfully, had a contingency plan.

The Olsen sisters have been actively marketing their own line of clothes since they were 12. So they plunged into the world of fashion, making clothing and accessories for women as they became unpopular in the film industry. Their brand, The Row, is very prominent and successful.

The German music band Tokio Hotel, created by twins Bill and Tom and their mates, was at the height of success in the early 2000s.

There is still a band, but they aren’t as famous now. The key things for Tom are still playing the guitar and making music for Tokio Hotel. In 2016, along with forming their band, Bill began his solo career.

4. Megan and Kathryn Prescott

These twins from Skins are well known as Emily and Katie Fitch. They were interested in several other projects, but for the young actresses, this one became the brightest one.

“The girls were not the” new sisters of Olsen. “They never wanted to play roles together. Megan has quit her acting career today and has taken up bodybuilding, and Kathryn also acts in films and series and works in her spare time as a photographer.

Speaking of the brothers’ bands, Good Charlotte is another one. Established by the Madden twins, this punk band was very successful in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

The brothers are also continuing their music careers today. In addition, they are now both known as the husbands of two well-known blondies: Benji is married to Cameron Diaz and Nicole Richie is married to Joel.

2. Dean and Dan Caten

As teenagers, Dean and Dan Caten, the Canadian designer brothers, loved making clothes. And in the 2000s, they became world-famous. The development of exclusive outfits for stars such as Madonna, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera is one of the brother’s specialities.

Today, in any large city, you can see the Dsquared2 brand in boutiques. The brothers also created sporty clothing for the Olympic Games, in addition to casual wear.

In 1980, in The Shining, 12-year-old Lisa and Louise played the scary girls. But they have never seen again on screen: drama schools declined to enrol them because of these positions.

But some time ago, in celebration of the anniversary of the release of the film, the sisters created a Twitter account dedicated to the twins and to anything related to the film.
