When you’re an actor, the most important thing is to succeed in embodying your character as well as possible and it’s often impressive to see the actors in biopics who look like two drops of water to their character. What is also very disturbing is to see actors who look exactly alike (both physically and in acting) playing the same character at different ages.

1. Georgia in Ginny & Georgia
In Ginny and Georgia, you can see flashbacks to Georgia’s (Brianne Howey) teenage years and it’s Nikki Roumel who plays her younger character to perfection.
2. Cece in New Girl
Someone would have me believe that Hannah Simone and Jaidan Jironce are not the same person when frankly, the resemblance is abused.
3. Cassie and Maddy in Euphoria
The childhood scenes of the Euphoria characters are all successful, but those of Cassie (Sydney Sweeney and Kyra Adler) and Maddy (Alexa Demie and Keilani Arellanes) are particularly impressive.
4. Joe in You
Everything is in the look: we immediately guess that this little boy (Aidan Wallace) is Joe interpreted by Penn Badgley (but we could not have guessed that he was going to become so weird).
5. Justin in 13 Reasons Why
In season 2 of 13 Reasons Why, a scene shows us the meeting of Justin and Bryce when they are only 7 or 8 years old. The little boy who plays Justin (Hank Greenspan) doesn’t look like Brandon Flynn at all when he was a kid, but he does look a lot like the character he plays.
6. Sabrina in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
To show scenes from Sabrina’s childhood, the casting directors found the rare pearl. Mckenna Grace, who plays Sabrina as a child, is the perfect look-alike for Kiernan Shipka who plays Sabrina as a teenager.
IN THE MOVIES
7. Loki in Thor
In the film Thor, we can see the childhood of the characters and these are particularly touching scenes. Although the actor of Child Thor is quite a resemblance, it is that of Loki, Ted Allpress, who is the most impressive because he really looks like Tom Hiddleston from certain angles.
8. Stanley in It
In the second chapter of the movie It, Andy Bean plays the role of adult Stanley. Even if the resemblance to Wyatt Oleff who plays his child version is not obvious, the acting is so good that we recognize the character perfectly.
9. Margo in The Far Side of Margo
As a child, Margo (Hannah Alligood) was Quentin’s best friend and they spent their entire childhood playing together. Once a teenager, Margo (Cara Delevingne) became distant and enigmatic but we recognize her character perfectly because the two actresses are very similar.
10. Tom Riddle in Harry Potter
Four different actors play the role of Tom Riddle, but there are two who play the role particularly well, to the point that we really want to believe that they are the same people. They are Hero Fiennes-Tiffin and Christian Coulson, who play Tom as a child and Tom as a teenager.
11. Simon in The Last Life of Simon
the French film The Last Life of Simon was released in 2020 and we were able to discover the revelation that is Benjamin Voisin (A real good man, Summer 85). The latter plays Simon when he is a young adult but the child Simon is interpreted by Albert Geffrier and the casting could not have been better.
12. Latika in Slumdog Millionaire
Everyone remembers Slumdog Millionaire (we all laughed at this movie) but few people remember Tanvi Ganesh Lonkar who plays teenage Latika. We only see her a little in the film but she plays the role perfectly, just like Rubina Ali who plays her adult version.
13. Vito Corleone in The Godfather
Marlon Brando and Robert de Niro are known to everyone in the world today, but at the time, The Godfather 2 was Robert de Niro’s first film to become a worldwide success. He perfectly plays the role of young Vito Corleone, just like Marlon Brando in the first part.
14. Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars
In episodes IV, V and VI of Star Wars, it is Alec Guinness who plays the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi and finding his young version for the following films could not have been easy. Fortunately, Ewan McGregor is perfect in the role.
15. Murphy in Interstellar
Interstellar is a very good movie (no offense to haters) and Mackenzie Foy is not for nothing. It is she who plays the role of child Murphy and Jessica Chastain has subsequently played the role of adult Murphy very well, we see nothing but fire.
