There’s no shortage of child actors in Hollywood. Many A-list movie and TV stars, such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Drew Barrymore and Ryan Gosling, got their start when they were young, bright-eyed, chubby-cheeked kids. As talented as they are, though, child stars can be a pain to work with for numerous reasons.

The biggest challenge when it comes to working with youngsters is the strict set of labor laws that production companies have to follow. The amount of time kids are able to work on set is very limited, so it takes longer to film shows and movies. They’re also, well, kids, so they’re not as cooperative as adults. That’s why studios often use twins; that way they can get double the filming time and switch between kids if one isn’t in the right mood.

Of course, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are most famous for sharing the role of Michelle Tanner on Full House, but there are tons more characters that were actually played by twins. Click through our gallery to find out who!
