Joyce and Jacqueline Robbins, known as the Robbins twins, have been acting professionally for more than 40 years. At 71, they seem to have hit their stride.
Best known for their roles as the White-Faced Women in the Netflix show A Series of Unfortunate Events, this summer their work has included an episode of CW’s Two Sentence Horror Stories, several episodes of Paramount Television’s Joe Pickett and an appearance on the MGM co-production of Billy the Kid.
Judging by what filmmakers and producers have to say about them, it’s no wonder the Robbins twins have writers scripting shows specifically for them, as was the case for Two Sentence Horror Stories.
The episode they starred in was directed by identical twins Kailey and Sam Spear.
Liz Levine, the show’s executive producer, said Joyce and Jacqueline don’t just provide a unique look as identical twins “of a certain age,” they’re also a pleasure to work with.
“The ladies just show up with the energy of a couple of 18-year-olds’ first day out of high school,” Levine said.”
“They’re enamored by everything. Their eyes twinkle. They are full of questions and curiosity.”
“If we have the energy, it’s just a number,” Jacqueline said of being 71. “We will [act] as long as we are able to do it.”
