On-Screen Siblings Who Dated in Real Life

Emily VanCamp dated another one of her on-screen brothers, Dave Annable, who played her brother in “Brothers and Sisters.”

In “Brothers and Sisters,” VanCamp played Rebecca Harper, a young woman who comes into the lives of the Walkers (the main focus of the series), and reveals that she is their half-sibling — their father had an affair with her mother, producing Rebecca. She then tries to build relationships with her new family.

The only issue? VanCamp and her on-screen half-brother, Annable (who played Justin), had visible chemistry and were dating off-screen. The show then made the choice to have Rebecca actually not be their half-sibling, freeing up Rebecca and Justin to date on the show.

VanCamp and Annable began dating in 2007, but they broke up before VanCamp’s character left the show in season four — Annable met his future wife, Odette, during season five.

“I looked like an idiot,” Greg Berlanti, an executive producer, told EW in 2008. “Here were two young people who didn’t grow up with each other, didn’t know each other, but they had this electricity. There was nothing I could do.”
