This has genuinely happened to me, a great uncle died suddenly, he married into the family and I had no idea he had a brother, never mind an identical twin. I was about 12 at the time and it totally baffled me, I assumed I had just got confused and it was someone else that had died... But was too awkward to say anything. The longer the service went on, and the more they talked about "Stanley" the more confused I became, because that guy in the front row is definitely the uncle they are talking about.
Parents set me straight eventually!
When the actor or actress playing your character is still alive and needs the work.
What animal is that?

my biological grand-father who passed away had vitiligo for years didnt care about his appearance, was sloppy. his brother comes from mexico to services who didnt have vitiligo, took care of himself, came in a suit was very strange to see the same man but just a better looking man.
The elderly couple next door took in their niece's daughter after she died of an overdose. They never introduced the daughter to the twin of the elderly man. When he passed, the man's twin walked and the poor girl was stunned and said "Pop-Pop?" when he walked in.
It was heart breaking but seriously they could have warned the poor kid.
Hard to introduce your twin when you're dead.
That's what happened with Jesus. His twin was walking around, and everyone thought Jesus had rose from the dead. The twin always envied his brother, so he didn't deny it and took over Jesus' life.
Now I know exactly what I'm doing for my funeral; hiring a lookalike
I can't stop watching and can't stop laughing. Thank you for this. Truly /r/bettereveryloop
That happened to my dad when my uncle died. They weren't twins but looked enough alike that the priest looked like he had seen a ghost.
