Soap Families Who Actually Look Related

Recommended Posts

The first ones that came to my mind were GL's Billy & Little Bill, Jordan Clarke & Bryan Buffington.

Also, there's something about the original Buchanan boys that just made me believe in them as father and sons, especially Phil & Clint:

I know Hunt Block was an unpopular choice to play ATWT's Craig, but in terms of resemblance, I always though the casting of Block and Todd Rotondi as father and son was genius.

I don’t think I ever forgave ATWT for killing Bryant off.  Good actor, chemistry with everyone, especially Lucinda.  Just so stupid.  I also liked Hunt Block’s Craig.

I always felt that Christine Tucci's Amanda heavily resembled Victoria Wyndham (Rachel). While Sandy Ferguson is Amanda, Christine's Amanda looked like the true seed of Rachel. 

 

Matt Crane (Matt) and William Gray Espy (Mitch) were perfect father/son casting too.

Sticking to the topic of siblings-

 

As The World Turns had some interesting casting that often worked out in ways that were both odd and uncanny.

 

Julianne Moore and Gregg Marx, maybe because I liked them so much but I thought they had a great chemistry that made them believable...also, the auburn and red hair topped it all off, no pun intended.  Odd, given the fact that they had the same Dad but different Mothers. 

Also, it was kind of kooky that Frannie and Barbara had the same Mom and both of Barbara's kids were redheads.  

 

Cricket, Craig and Margo (especially Margaret Colin) had a similar look. Margaret Colin and Scott Bryce, especially in the eyes, shape of the face and around the mouth.    You won't find much on You Tube sadly but what little there is, if you have the patience to piece it together, you can see it.

I remember a soap mag at the time of Ferguson's debut praising the show for the actress' resemblance to Wyndham -- something about the two of them possessing "chipmunk cheeks."

Definitely agree about Marlena and her children/ stepchildren looking like they are related.

I came here to post photos of these kiddos but you saved me the time. Great casting for these siblings.

 

If Kirsten Storms still played Belle, she and daughter Claire would be very similar. Nonetheless, I still would gladly welcome a Claire recast PRONTO.

I remember when Kristian Alfonso started on Days that I thought she was perfect to play Julie's sister.  Never mind that neither Hope nor Julie looked like their mother.

I've recently been rewatching some of the 1979 episodes from As The World Turns that are available on Youtube, and I'm struck at how much Conard Fowkes resembles Don Hastings. I'm not sure it'll be immediately obvious in photos, but they have some of the same mannerisms and the same twinkle in their eyes.
