12 Actors Who Have Played Multiple Roles on the Same TV Show
We’ve covered actors who have played multiple roles in the same film (ex, Lindsay Lohan in The Parent Trap, Adam Sandler in Jack and Jill), but playing dual roles isn’t exclusive to the big screen. As evidenced by Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley on The Vampire Diaries, there are a few lucky celebrities who get to test out their acting chops on a more regular basis by playing two (or more) totally different characters season after season.
We’re still pretty stumped as to how actors can play multiple roles on one episode, especially if those two characters are in the same scene. Who can forget Selena Gomez‘s Wizards Return showdown between Good Alex and Bad Alex? Epic! For more actors and actresses who have played more than one role on the same TV show, scroll through our gallery below:
Selena plays both Good Alex and Evil Alex on the Wizards of Waverly Place special, The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex. During the movie, Good Alex accidentally creates her evil reflection in the mirror, resulting in Evil Alex who ends up shrinking and imprisoning her family.
