Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries) and Victoria Justice (Victorious)
Double trouble. These two are often mistaken for one another thanks to their striking resemblance. Dobrev played her own doppelganger in Vampire Diaries but Justice could have easily done the part!
Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl) and Ian Somerhalder (The Vampire Diaries)
It’s the eyes. Both of these actors have beautiful peepers and brooding vibe. Plus, they’re serious heartthrobs from teen dramas on The CW.
Darren Criss (Glee) and Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones)
Smoldering with enviable brunette locks is the M.O. of these two hunks. If it wasn’t for Criss’ recent shorter ‘do – maybe to avoid comparisons? – then he could even get away with playing Jon Snow’s body double.
Zach Braff (Scrubs) and Dax Shepard (Parenthood)
There’s no denying these two look alike when Shepard’s own wife, Kristen Bell, posts a face-swap of her husband and Braff, acknowledging the resemblance. Braff even posted a photo of the two together with the caption “See we’re not the same person.”
Josh Holloway (Colony) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones)
Can you tell the difference? Both actors often switch between long and short hair, making it hard to tell them apart. Plus, their dimples are identical. If there’s anyone else who resembles them, we’d like to know!
Jessica Chastain (Law & Order: Trial by Jury) and Bryce Dallas Howard (Black Mirror)
With these two red-headed beauties, it’s sometimes hard to determine who you’re looking at on-screen. They’ve both even appeared on the same movie: 2011’s The Help.
Will Arnett (Arrested Development) and Patrick Wilson (Fargo)
The shape of their heads alone make these guys look genetically linked. We’re convinced they’re at least cousins.
Erin Andrews (Dancing With the Stars) and Beth Behrs (2 Broke Girls)
It’s a little easier to tell these two apart but there’s still something in their looks that draws a comparison. Not to mention, both women are super passionate and let everyone know they mean business — regardless of their shared wide smiles.
Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) and Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl)
Kelly was in Friday Night Lights at the same time as Meester starred in Gossip Girl. If you were a fan of both shows, that must have been confusing. Thanks to their similar heights, coloring, and hairstyles, they even landed co-starring roles in Single White Female remake, The Roommate.
It's not surprising that many Hollywood stars look similar — most of them use the same hairdressers, stylists, and makeup artists. But sometimes, it goes farther than that.
In honor of National Lookalike Day (April 20), we're taking a look at some nearly-identical TV stars who might as well also celebrate National Twin Day. We're talking the cream of the small-screen crop, from shows like Game of Thrones, Gossip Girl, and The Vampire Diaries.
