The girls definitely had star-appeal, and stole the show from the rest of the cast before they were even able to start speaking! Wonder why they both got cast to play one character? It turns out, child-labor laws were pretty intense, and the series got around that by hiring the twins instead.

They were nine months old. Word on the street is that they never enjoyed being famous and didn't want all the attention on them. It's tough to hear that because all we know is that if we grew up in the '90s or we were young during that time, we absolutely loved the twins.

Even in this one photo, we can see how awesome they look in girly, light pink outfits and little white shoes with bows on them. Twin moms can probably agree that even if you say you won't dress your kids in matching outfits, you simply can't help yourself.

Top This image was lost some time after publication. We're fans of surprises here at Defamer, especially when they involve young female stars in bikinis. So when we came across these photos of Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen in their itty bitty swimsuits on Egotastic, we were admittedly shocked. Considering all those years-old anorexia rumors, coupled with endless paparazzi shots making the tiny twins look roughly 80 pounds combined, we'd expect a somewhat fear-filled reaction upon seeing MK and Ash undressed.
