Separated at Birth: 90210’s Jennie Garth and Abbie Cobb

If imitation is indeed the sincerest form of flattery, VAMPIRE DIARIES’ executive producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson will be thrilled to discover that 90210 has just added a Jennie Garth doppelganger to the cast!

Or at least that was our initial reaction upon getting a first look at Abbie Cobb (JONAS, STARSTRUCK), who according to Michael Ausiello will be moving into America’s most infamous zip code in the recurring capacity of Annie and Dixon’s spotlight-hungry-boy-crazy cousin Emily. Which is to say, fans should expect Emily to sink her teeth into Liam starting this January.

Update: Even Abbie’s co-stars can’t believe the resemblance! Find out how Michael Steger (Navid Shirazi) reacted the first time he laid eyes on her.

    Are you sure that isn’t just an old Jennie Garth picture? LOL.

  • Charles Carmichael

    I’m slacking and I’m behind on both 90210 and Vampire Diaries but plan on catching up soon. Is Jennie Garth guest starring on The Vampire Diaries?

    @Kelly right? That was my first reaction too, it’s so weird, they could seriously be related. Never quite understood the casting people over at 90210.

  • Fifa

    she is a dead ringer of jennie garth- when I first saw her I thought that was her daugther… amazing resemblence

  • Tori

    is she related to jennie?? they look so much alike!! when i first saw her i thought they may be sisters, but no??

  • Epicdoodle

    OMG I thought the same thing the minute I saw her, I kinda think they chose her on purpose because of how much she resembles Jennie! The similarities between the two is uncanning!

  • Winnie0310_chang

    yeah it actually gave me the chills how much they look alike!!! and i thought they might be related to each other too… abbie cobb looks exactly like the young jenny garth on the original 90210…i couldn’t believe my eyes when abbie cobb first appeared on 90210… maybe the casting folks did purposely chose her because of the resemblance… LOL

    Oh, I get it…they mention TVD because the doppleganger thing…I totally had no idea why the author was referring to TVD at first…

    I thought that this girl was Jennie Garth’s daughter I had to look up Jennie Garth’s children to make sure they weren’t old enough to be in 90210, it is really crazy how much the two of them look alikie

  • Summer

    They could have used her for Kelly flashbacks. Just sayin’.

    omg i knew they were related some way because they look soo much a like i honestly thought it was her daughter playing in 90210

  • Ingatta

    she looks more like SHREK

  • The first time I saw her, I thought she was Jennie Garth’s daugther, but she’s not. What an uncanny resemblance. We’ve met Jennie’s Twin in the world. Annie Cobb.

  • Tammy

    Just watching her on Grey’s Anatomy and I thought it might be one of Jennie’s girls. She is definitely her twin. They should make a movie with Jeannie and make Abbie her daughter, perfect match up.

  • June Hi

    I just watched the Lifetime movie “Teenage Bank Heist”. I thought I was watching “Kelly” from 90210. Then I looked at how young she looked, but the Jaguar they were in was a late model. I just checked on line, to read about it. I would swear I just watch a young Jenny Garth. Abbie Cobb is Jenny’s clone without a doubt.

  • nikki

    Yes I too thought Annie Cobb was Jenny’s daughter after watching “Teenage bank heist”. That is how I ended up here. She looks, talks, walks, smiles like her, and has the same mannerisms. Crazy stuff!!

  • Manny Guzman
