Jordan Peele's Us features twins who played Friends' baby Emma; has Twitterati 'feeling old'
The twins, Becca and Lindsey, in Jordon Peele's Us are played by real-life 16-year-old California child actors Cali and Noelle Sheldon
We all have probably watched plenty of runs of beloved sitcom classic, Friends, and wondered whatever happened to Ross and Rachel's daughter, Emma. The role of little toddler was shared by identical twin sisters Noelle and Cali Sheldon.
Now 16, they're embarking on adult acting careers — and were recently featured in Jordan Peele's new horror movie, Us. Noelle and Cali play twin sisters Becca and Lindsey in the film. Their parents are played by Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker.
Peele, who wrote and directed the film, sang their praises to Entertainment Tonight, saying "They have a couple of scenes where they really steal the show."
Twitter is of course surprised to discover this detail and have expressed their shock by stating that this is making them feel old.
