Birthname: Rachel & Robin Greenbush
Birthdate: May 25, 1970
Birthplace: Hollywood, California
Credited as: Lindsay & Sidney Greenbush
The twins shared the role of baby Carrie, taking turns before the
camera. Born in Hollywood, California, the sisters began their acting
career thanks to the advice of a friend who knew a casting director.
They were signed by Michael Landon after their role in the Movie of the
Week, "Sunshine", on NBC Television in 1973.
Lindsay and Sidney's real first names are Rachel and Robin as Patrick
Laborteaux told me in 1991. They prefer to go by Lindsay and Sidney
instead. In recent years, Robin changed the spelling of her first name
to Robyn, to make it look more female. The twins have their own website
on the Internet. Their father is actor Billy Greenbush and mother is
Carole Kay Greenbush.
For their work in "Little House on the Prairie", Lindsay and Sidney
were inducted into the Hall of Great Western Performers of the National
Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in 1998.
