Lisa and Louise Burns were twelve years old when they played the Grady Twins in The Shining. It was the only film appearance for the sisters.
In a June, 2002 issue of JANE magazine, the twins, then 35, recalled running around in the Hedge Maze set, getting lost and forcing crew members to remove panels to let them out. They discussed still owning a pair of the dresses they wore in the film, and Louise recalled, “I got to keep a jar of fake blood. I stored it in the fridge until it congealed.”
It’s downright unnerving how Karl has the exact same worried, furrowed brow as De did.
Probably one of the tiniest things about the reboot, and yet it’s one of the things about it that makes me the happiest.
Except the new ones all have the sexy man-pout that seems to be the latest trend in attractive models and actors.

Here’s one of my favorite interviews from the guy. It’s from when he was on Space Ghost: Coast to Coast
