The Sprouse boys seemed destined for stardom from a young age. Born in 1992, the twins won their first acting role in a diaper commercial aged just eight months old. While it may have been a small start, the babies proved adorable enough to pique the interest of casting agents.

Later that year, Dylan and Cole landed their first major gig on the sitcom Grace Under Fire. Alternating the role of Patrick Kelly between them – owing to Californian child labor laws – the two appeared in the series from 1993 to its 1998 cancellation.
