Sibling rivalry has always been a thing in most of the families. Some rivalries keep on exaggerating with age, whereas some grow past it. Even in the show business, when most of the family members are involved in the industry, it definitely creates some sort of tension. And the tension itself may or may not be functional. If we talk about the famed Skarsgard family of Hollywood, we can actually see the close knit relationship of that over-extended family. They openly display their affection for each other.
And seems like same goes with the Breslin family. Though only the younger generation of the 'Breslins' is in the industry, they seem to get along quite nicely. The three siblings, Ryan, Spencer, and Abigail set foot in the show business in one way or the other. The younger two, Spencer (born 1992) and Abigail (born 1996) have been child actors to mature actors in a span of fewer than two decades. The eldest one, Ryan, is a producer. Back in 2014, he produced an Indonesian movie, which was a huge success in that country.
Abigail had tweeted greetings to her brother for his success.
Congrats to my big brother @Booster_JJ for producing an Indonesian film that is the #1 movie in Indonesia right now! So proud :')
And in an industry so big, there is bound to be someone else sharing your name, from word to word. People often confuse this oldest Breslin with 'Newsies' and 'Race' actor Ryan Breslin.
Spencer actually made his debut with a commercial at the age of THREE. And since then, he has been credited with many movies in which he has played significant roles. He is probably best known for his roles in the feature films Disney's The Kid (co-starring at the age of eight with Bruce Willis), The Santa Clause 2: The Mrs. Clause and The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause (as Curtis the Elf). His television credits include Teamo Supremo, Stephen King's Storm of the Century, and Law & Order. And he has won the award for “Best Performance in a Feature Film - Young Actor Age Ten or Under” back in 2001 for his role in Disney’s The Kid.
Spencer and Abigail Breslin
With Spencer as the middle elder brother, Abigail was bound to end up with similar success. Even this 20-year-old Breslin scion first appeared in a commercial when she was just three years old. Quite a brother – sister duo huh? She has won several young actress awards for her movies such as Little Miss Sunshine and My Sister’s Keeper.
Let us see what the future holds for this family.
