* Dichen Lachmann, the actress cast to play Skye's mother in flashbacks on ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' bears an incredible resemblance to her fictional daughter. [[spoiler: It gets even more impressive when Dichen Lachmann's character shows up very much alive (if not unharmed) in the present and you get to see her acting alongside her kid.]] The resemblance between her and Chloe Wang is uncanny.

* On ''Series/GoodEats'', John Herina had a recurring role as Alton's nephew, Elton, as well as playing a young Alton in one episode. Much to the surprise of some viewers, they're not related, despite looking so similar.

Added DiffLines:

* Speaking of ''Star Wars'' actors, Creator/HarrisonFord's TimeShiftedActor younger self, played by Anthony Ingruber, in ''Film/TheAgeOfAdaline'' bears a truly ''insane'' amount of resemblance to Harrison Ford to the extent that some people were convinced Harrison Ford dubbed his younger voice (He didn't.) As a matter of fact, Anthony Ingruber seems to have made a ''life'' out of looking like Harrison Ford, and he's damn good at it.

*** Similarly, actress Genevieve O'Reilly was cast as Mon Mothma due to bearing a striking resemblance to Caroline Blakiston. Sadly, as her speaking role was cut, she too is largely an extra.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/TheLegendOfBillieJean'', Creator/ChristianSlater and [[Film/{{Supergirl}} Helen Slater]] play teenage siblings. With their blond hair, grey-blue eyes, peaches-and-cream complexions, and identical last names, coupled with the fact that both actors were relative unknowns at the time, it was unsurprising when many moviegoers assumed they were real-life brother-and-sister.
