Michelle Monaghan Stars in New Netflix Original Miniseries echoes, which focuses on identical twin sisters Leni and Gina, who have switched places since childhood. Their scheme is complicated in adulthood when one of the sisters goes missing.
Leni and Gina share each other’s lives, switching places every year on their birthday and balancing two lives, two homes, two husbands and a child. When Leni’s disappearance brings Gina home, she is forced to play both roles until secrets from her past begin to unravel.
echoes also stars Matt Bomer, Daniel Sunjata, Karen Robinson, Jonathan Tucker and Ali Stroker alongside Michelle Monaghan. But while some viewers are watching the limited series, they might be wondering if Monaghan actually has a twin or if she’s playing the dual roles.
In order not to burst anyone’s bubble à la Lindsay Lohan in The Parents’ Trap but Michelle Monaghan doesn’t have a twin. The talented actress doubles as Leni and Gina in a career-best performance that is set to earn Monaghan Award nominations.
Does Echoes star Michelle Monaghan have a twin?
Monaghan doesn’t have a twin, and she doesn’t have any sisters. She has two older brothers named Bob and John, who don’t seem to be actors. And while some might think she looks like actresses Ruth Wilson and Emma Stone, they are not related. The paper twin aspect of her in the echoes depends on your own talent of being able to play two roles at the same time.
In previous episodes of the series, the differences between Monaghan’s performance as Leni and Gina aren’t much different, but as the series reveals more and more about what’s really going on between the sisters, Monaghan shows nuance in her performance.
Without giving away spoilers, there’s a scene later in the limited series when one sister slips into the other sister’s facade at any given moment. Seeing the change in action is both chilling and exhilarating. Monaghan really excels in the demanding dual role.
