Lauren Graham and Peter Krause

From 2010 to 2015, actors Lauren Graham and Peter Krause played siblings Sarah and Adam on NBC’s series “Parenthood.” They quickly realized they had a deep connection with each other and talked all the time. Lauren Graham said they talked about, “the world and books and family. Once we got together, there was no game play. It was like, ‘You like me, and I like you.’ It gave me an understanding of life: This is how things happen, and it’s completely random.” 

Chris Pratt and Emily VanCamp

While playing teen siblings on the drama series, “Everwood,” Chris Pratt and Emily VanCamp fell for each other. From 2002 to 2006, the two played Amy Abbot and older brother Bright. They dated for a couple of years as a result of their on and off air chemistry. “We’ve pretty much gotten used to the response of, ‘Eww, that’s weird. That’s creepy.’ People who knew us are happy, and probably expected it to happen eventually.  

Maureen McCormick and Barry Williams

In her book, “Here’s the Story: Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice,” McCormick dished details about their off-and-on relationship. She said they had their first kiss during season four on a cast trip to Hawaii. She said that at times even she would think, “Oh my God! I’m kissing my brother. What am I doing?’”

Jason Behr and Katherine Heigl

“Roswell” was the birthplace of the love match up between Jason Behr and Katherine Heigl. The two played siblings from two different planets, but were anything but distant off camera.

Shannen Doherty and Jason Priestley

Shannon Doherty and Jason Priestley played siblings on Beverly Hills, 90210. In fact, they played the Walsh twins, and were definitely close off screen as well. In his book, “Jason Priestley: A Memoir,” Priestley stated: “Various combinations of people slept with each other over the years. Nobody ever got attached. We never let it get in the way of what we were doing. I will let you know that nobody ever got — work always superseded everything.”
