22 Examples Of TV Family Members Who Were Perfectly Cast
Not a single one of these actors is actually related!!
One of the trickiest parts of casting is casting families.
Not only do you have to cast the right actor for the part, but you usually have to make sure actors cast to be family members look and sound similar.
