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.
