Amber Riley And Raven Goodwin Are Industry Twin Sister But Not Biological

It is very natural to think that ‘Glee’ star Amber Riley and ‘Good Luck Charlie’ actress Raven Goodwin are sisters because of their similar facial features.

Referring to their uncanny similarities, many media have publicly addressed that the two actresses are often mistaken for sisters.

Riley and Goodwin, who embarked on their acting careers around the same time, also shared the screen in the 2022 movie Single Black Female.

In the film, Amber portrayed Simone Hicks, while Raven portrayed Monica. During this period, the confusion surrounding their relationship as sisters only intensified.

Addressing the rumors, Riley said, “She’s my industry twin and I would see her pop up on my IMDB page. People would often mix us up when we’d do red carpets. They’ll say to her, ‘Oh I love you in Glee.'”

She further added, “We took a picture years ago at the Essence Festival and literally manifested doing this movie together. Thousands of comments and likes are under that picture saying things like, ‘Come on, Hollywood, put us in a movie together already.’ So, this was a dream come true and the manifestation of something that we wanted.”
