Do you recall Sweet Valley High? Here’s how the twins look now, 25 years after the show first aired on television.
Have you ever wondered what happened to the twins from Sweet Valley High?
Brittany and Cynthia Daniel, twin sisters, appeared in the TV version of Sweet Valley High from 1994 to 1997.
The 90s sitcom, which was largely based on Francine Pascal’s immensely successful books, lasted four seasons and had one of the best TV theme tunes ever.
The plot of the show was rather straightforward: two gorgeous twin sisters moved to the fictional Sweet Valley High School in California.
Twins in real life Brittany and Cynthia, both from Florida, became famous for their roles as Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield in the show.
One was warm and pleasant, while the other was a reckless and mischievous spirit.
The show may have begun over TWO decades ago, but the real-life sisters have benefited greatly from the passage of time.
The twins are now 45 years old. Let’s go back in time and observe how the sisters have progressed since their on-screen Cali high school days… When Sweet Valley High finished in 1997, Brittany and Cynthia went away from the spotlight.
However, it didn’t mean they weren’t successful; in fact, the show’s popularity garnered both sisters a Young Artist Award in 1995.
The cast went their own ways when the show ended, with a few exceptions.
Castmates In real life, Manley Pope and Amy Danles married in 1999, and the twins remained best friends.
The sisters were 18 when the show premiered in 1994, but after three seasons on Fox stations, the show moved to UPN in September 1997 for its fourth and final season.
Then, in October, it was cancelled owing to low ratings.
The first book in the Sweet Valley High series was published in 1983, and the series was continued for the next 20 years.
After Sweet Valley High, Cynthia appeared to put her acting shoes away, while Brittany stayed in the spotlight.
Brittany played the more outgoing of the Wakefield twins, and she started working alongside her twin sister at a young age.
Both sisters starred opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in The Basketball Diaries during their time at Sweet Valley High.
Brittany’s next part was Eve Whitman in Season 3 of Dawson’s Creek, which she played for four episodes two years after the series ended.
She went on to star in the films White Chicks, Joe Dirt, Joe Dirt 2, and The Game, as well as the US comedy programs It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The Game.
Brittany debuted as a recurring character Kelly Pitts on BET’s The Game in Season 7, but by Season 9, she had become a series regular. Brinkwire News in a Nutshell
