How can I tell Lindsay and Sidney apart?
These twins are identical, and it can sometimes be hard to tell them apart. When they were babies Lindsay was the bigger twin, but as they got older Sidney became the taller twin (she's still a little bit taller than her sister). Sidney also had a little bigger gap between her front teeth than Lindsay did, when they were little.
Study their eyes, smiles and freckles - after a while it gets easier to see who is who! :)
Are the girls still acting?
No, neither twin is still acting - they are both happy living "regular" lives, although they have stated they MIGHT consider going back to acting someday.
