* The casting department on ''PeakyBlinders'' really must be commended. Creator/CillianMurphy, Paul Anderson, and Joe Cole as the three eldest Shelby brothers all share the same blue eyes and jawline, and Anderson in particular is a dead ringer for a younger Tommy Flanagan, who plays their father. Among the ladies, Helen [=McCrory=] and Sophie Rundle could play mother and daughter, not aunt and niece, and they both share similar features with the men of the family. Youngest Shelby brother Finn as played by Alfie Evans-Meese wasn't as close a fit, resemblance-wise, but [[http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/whats-on/arts-culture-news/schoolboy-harry-kirtons-delight-peaky-6802957 Harry Kirton]] as the teenaged Finn looks ''exactly'' like Cole.

* The actor for Al's twin brother in ''Series/HomeImprovement'' is actually of no relation to Richard Karn. The producers looked ''long and hard'' for a nigh-identical guy.

*** Michelle Fairley and Sophie Turner as mother and daughter Catelyn and Sansa Stark. When Petyr Baelish says Sansa looks just like a younger Cat, the audience can see the resemblance. (Auburn hair, porcelain skin, elfin features and big blue eyes etc.)

*** Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Brandon Stark) who play the younger Stark siblings, have very similar facial features particularly high cheekbones, long noses and bushy eyebrows, as well as sharing Madden and Harington's thick, dark hair and pale skin which is acknowledged in-universe as the signature Stark look.

[[note]] Notably Catelyn is resentful that Ned's bastard looks more like him than any of the true born sons she bore, and Arya feels like an outcast because she takes after the plainer Starks compared to her attractive Tully-like siblings.[[/note]]

** Richard Madden (Robb Stark) and his in-show half brother [[spoiler: (who is later revealed to actually be his cousin)]] Creator/KitHarington (Jon Snow) look similar enough that a common criticism of the first few episodes is that it's hard to tell which is which when they're in the same scene.

** When she finally appears in flashbacks portrayed by Aisling Franciosi, Lyanna Stark bears a striking resemblance to [[spoiler:her son]] Jon Snow. Also, she has facial traits [[http://pm1.narvii.com/6143/ecf4f10095bded37b616cfe6eb03c6a5fe061d76_hq.jpg very reminiscent of Maisie William's]], who in the books is said to be Lyanna's spitting image.
