07:56 – As we’re watching something on Netflix streaming, Barbara and I often see an actor or actress who looks familiar. Usually, it’s someone we’ve seen before, often in one or two episodes of several series. But sometimes the person just reminds us of someone else. I’ve commented several times that IMdB really needs a “looks like” or “reminds me of” link.

Here are some recent examples:

Michelle Burke (Little Men) and Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl). Other than the 15 year difference in ages, these two could be not just sisters, but identical twins.

Jessica Raine (Call the Midwife) and Helen Baxendale (Cold Feet). Again, other than the age difference, these two could be identical twins.

Anastasia Griffith (Copper) and Emily Vancamp (Reven8e). The resemblance here is more subtle, but I kept thinking that Griffith really reminded me of someone. Last night, seeing her in profile on Damages, it finally hit me. Barbara agreed instantly that she looks like Emily Vancamp.
