Do you recognise the @Shining_twins? Special guests at our anniversary screening of Stanley Kubrick's Dr Strangelove
Lisa and Louise Burns were just 12-years-old when Stanley Kubrick cast them as the Grady girls, the twins who tormented Danny Torrance (and the world), in The Shining.
On Saturday, 34 years later, the Burns sisters attended a BFI anniversary screening of Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. And they were still arm in arm.
The Shining was the Burns’ final film. Lisa went on to study literature, while Louise became a microbiologist. Now 46, they live in London and have recently joined Twitter under the apt handle @Shining_Twins.
