If you’ve seen Madelyn Cline in Netflix’s ‘Outer Banks’, you might be wondering if you’ve seen the new young star somewhere before. Has she been in something else? Does she have any famous siblings?
From the information she has made publically available, Madelyn Cline does not have any siblings. She keeps her personal life very private and has not revealed any information about her family to the rest of the world.
You might be reading this and thinking, “I’m sure I’ve seen someone who looks like her though!” Even though she doesn’t have any siblings we know about, you might be recognizing her from her appearance on other beloved Netflix show Stranger Things.
Is it her Lookalike in Stranger Things?
Before the South Carolina native assumed her breakout role in Outer Banks, Cline had a small role in Stranger Things where she bagged a minor role as Tina, a student who we see briefly admiring the season 2 antagonist Billy Hargrove, played by Dacre Montgomery.
It’ll have been an easy one to miss since her appearance was so brief, but she did receive what could be considered a fairly significant spotlight for someone who was such a relative newcomer to acting in terms of on-screen experience. Turns out it wasn’t a relative or just somebody that bore a close resemblance, it was Cline herself!
Although her role was incredibly brief, only comprising a few lines, the young starlet must have made enough of an impact on the showrunners and given her a subsequent good connection with the producers at Netflix.
These new connections proved to be fortunate for Cline, as ‘Outer Banks’, the next show that Netflix had their hand in producing, was in need of a gifted cast of young new talents for the teen drama. For Cline, the character of Sarah Cameron grabbed her attention.
Even though it’s not sure whether or not she has any siblings in her real life, at least her character on the show has one. On the show, she is sister to older brother Rafe Cameron and younger sister Wheezie Cameron.
Small spoilers for anyone that isn’t up to date with their episodes of Outer Banks, but perhaps having siblings isn’t all it’s cracked up to be if they turn out to be anything like Rafe.
Interestingly, it wasn’t only Cline that had an appearance on Stranger Things before hitting the big time. Her co-star on Outer Banks also made a small cameo!
It was a far quicker spot than Cline’s, a blink-and-you-miss-it flash, but we can see co-star Chase Stokes in the window of a passing vehicle during one of the scenes.
Who are Some Famous Celebrity Siblings?
Celebrities that have spent long enough in the public eye will eventually have details about their family life revealed, whether by talking about it themselves or it being revealed over time. Cline is a fresh face in the showbusiness scene, so if she’s a private person then it’s understandable that she hasn’t shown any interest in publishing her family tree for the world to see.
Some actors and actresses, however, have the talent for acting in their blood. If you look at some celebrities, it seems that they were almost predestined to act, with all of their siblings enjoying the performing arts in one form or another.
A good example would be the Baldwin’s, with four brothers that are all massively famous for their acting chops. Alec is the most well-known of the four, but each of them has their individual accolades and distinguishing talents in the industry.
Then there are siblings like Chris Hemsworth and his brother Liam Hemsworth. Both of them are incredibly famous actors in their own rights, though if you weren’t familiar with them you’d be hard-pressed to tell them apart from each other!
The two Franco brothers, James and Dave, are similarly alike, both in their acting and in their friendly, down-to-earth personalities that help endear them to viewers. Although James was certainly the most well-known until more recently, Dave has proven himself to be just as much of a powerhouse on-screen as his older brother.
Other acting siblings that are almost indistinguishable from one another are the Olsen twins. Famous for their role where the similarities were required, not everyone is blessed to have a sibling who is not only as similar-looking, but equally as talented.
