In the 1960s, actress Patty Duke played identical cousins Patty Lane and Cathy Lane on the popular sitcom The Patty Duke Show. Now a grandmother, the 67-year-old Duke wants to play TV twins again. She said watching the current Disney show Liv and Maddie with her grandchildren got her jealous. “I won’t lie,” Duke said. “When [the show] came on the air, there was a part of me that said, ‘I want to do that!’”
Duke will guest star — as a pair of grandma twins! — on an upcoming episode of Liv and Maddie next year. The big difference between playing twins on TV now and then? In the 60s, she had just one camera on her, now there are four.
