Twin Sisters Separated At Birth Were Brought Back Together By A YouTube Video

It's like a modern-day Parent Trap.

Adopted and raised on different continents, 26-year-olds Samantha and Anaïs' story is straight out of a movie.


In February 2013, Anaïs, a French fashion design student living in London, saw a YouTube video of Samantha, an American actor living in Los Angeles. She was immediately blown away by how similar they both looked.

After some light internet stalking, Anaïs learned that she and Samantha shared a birthday, and they were both adopted. So she did what any twentysomething would do, and sent her a Facebook message.

The two began Skyping...

And eventually compared baby pictures. The resemblance was uncanny.

Finally, in May 2013, Samantha and her family flew to London to meet Anaïs and her family for the very first time.

The "twinsters" as they've dubbed themselves, shared an immediate bond.

Over the next year, Anaïs traveled to Los Angeles to visit Samantha for two weeks.

And they were even able to spend 10 days in Seoul, Korea, where they visited their adoption agencies and discovered the land where their separation took place.

There seems to be no question that the pair are biological twin sisters, separated at birth. But after documenting their entire journey on camera, Samantha and Anaïs have created a Kickstarter campaign to turn their story into a film.
