21. The twins who played Holly Wheeler also appeared on The Walking Dead

Stranger Things actually wasn’t the first time that Anniston and Tinsley Price appeared on television. In fact, it’s not the first time they appeared on a hit show with a massive fanbase either.

They also appeared on The Walking Dead as Judy Grimes in the show’s fourth season. While it appears to be unclear exactly who her father is, Rick Grimes takes Judy under his wing and tries to protect her at all costs.

Of course, like Holly Wheeler, Judy Grimes is only one character. But as is the case for many child actors, twins alternate their appearances as a way to adhere to strict child labor laws. Perhaps the most famous pairs of twins are still to this day the Olsen twins, who appeared as Michelle Tanner in Full House from the time they were infants to about eight years old.

When Netflix rebooted Full House into the sequel series, Fuller House, the Olsen twins were noticeably absent. Fuller House even went as far as calling them out in a brief wink to the audience, but … you know, excuse them for chasing that paper and doing what they love. They don’t act anymore, so I don’t think Fuller House should take it so personally. Just like the Price twins no longer appear on The Walking Dead. It’s just the way the cookie crumbles.

(I really hated that call out.)
