‘Sister, Sister’ Twins Swap Spooky Roles

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Having an identical twin sister recently came in handy for actress Tamera Mowry.

Tamera – best known for her hit 90s sitcom Sister, Sister, in which she starred opposite her twin sister, actress Tia Mowry – is pairing up with her sis again for Disney Channel’s latest TV movie, Twitches Too, and she says having Tia on the set was very helpful.

Tamera explains, “I was working on another project at the same time and wasn’t able to do a couple of my scenes, so Tia stepped in and pretended to be me. It worked out perfectly!”

But Tamera’s role of the bubbly Camryn Barnes in Twitches Too wasn’t always meant for her.

In fact, Tamera says the character was originally written for Tia, while Tia’s role of the studious Alex Fielding in the film was written for Tamera – until they swapped.

Tamera says, “Tia played Camryn at first, but we thought, ‘Nope, this isn’t right.’ Camryn is so much like me that Tia and I decided to switch our characters. That’s the beauty of having a twin!”

Twitches Too premieres tonight (Oct. 12) on the Disney Channel.
