Turns out, not even your cozy Friends binge is safe from the terrifying effects of US. Cali and Noelle Sheldon, the twins who played Ross and Rachel’s adorable baby Emma in Seasons 9 and 10 of Friends, are all grown up now and starring in Jordan Peele’s latest nightmare. The Sheldon sisters, now 17, appear as Becca and Lindsey Tyler, the twin daughters of Elisabeth Moss’s character, Kitty.
Can you believe it’s been almost 17 years since the birth of baby Emma? On the season eight finale of Friends in May 2002, the world watched as Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) and Ross (David Schwimmer) welcomed their baby girl, Emma. In later seasons, Ross and Rachel’s young daughter was portrayed by twins Cali Sheldon and Noelle Sheldon. Just like with Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen in Full House, many shows will hire twin actors to play the role of a young child for filming purposes.
The twins appeared on about eight episodes of the series from 2003 to 2004 before Friends came to an end. Since that time, the Sheldon twins, who are now 17, have appeared in a handful of other acting projects. And now, the twins have hit the big screen in Jordan Peele’s new movie, US, which dominated the box office over the weekend. The film, starring Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, centers around the Wilson family, who are terrorized by their doppelgängers.
