You Won’t Believe These TV Actors Are Related

Mind blown? Ours, too.

There are more than enough fictional families on TV already. But sometimes real-life relatives find themselves on the small screen together. Some actors got there through their family connections, while others are following their own paths and just sharing the set like it’s a bedroom. Here are a few TV actors for whom it’s all relative.

Melissa Gilbert/Sara Gilbert

Amazingly, the child stars of ‘Little House on The Prairie’ and ‘Roseanne’ are sisters in real life. In fact, Sara discovered she wanted to be an actress after she saw Melissa get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They have two very different on-screen personas, but their sibling rivalry ultimately brought them together.

George Wendt/Jason Sudeikis

‘Cheers’ star Wendt, whose name everybody knew (and shouted), is the uncle of the former ‘Saturday Night Live’ cast member Jason Sudeikis. Sudeikis was inspired to go into comedy by Wendt’s portrayal of Norm, while Wendt played the recurring character Bob Da Bears Swerski in SNL sketches throughout the early ’90s.

Liev Schreiber/Pablo Schreiber

The star of Showtime’s ‘Ray Donovan,’ Liev is the half-brother of ‘Orange Is the New Black’ corrections officer, Pablo. Last name aside, they’re such different actors that you’d never guess they were siblings. Yet, both actors are key players in the new golden age of television in their own way.

Quincy Jones/Rashida Jones

The former ‘Office’ and ‘Parks & Recreation’ star Rashida is the daughter of music producer and ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ creator, Quincy Jones. She might have outdone her dad on the sitcom front, but she’ll never do the same musically (although, Quincy’s photo did appear on ‘Arrested Development’ many times).
