They appeared in many television and film spots together, where some of the storylines resulted in rather [[IncestuousCasting awkward situations]]. However, they were mostly cast as brother and sister, invoking RealLifeRelative on many occasions.


Added DiffLines:

-->''"I was partying with the girls ... and their mothers."''


Added DiffLines:
