Love triangles and relationship overlap abound in Hollywood. It’s not at all uncommon for actors to develop feelings for their co-stars. If they’re playing love interests or a couple, the authentic chemistry between them can elevate their performances. But sometimes, not only are their characters not love interests, they’re related!

Okay, so it’s not really wrong for actors hired to play siblings in a movie or TV show hook up. But knowing about their private lives can certainly effect the viewing experience, and fill otherwise typical brother and sister exchanges with creepy undertones. In fact, unless their last name is Lannister or Targaryen, it’s especially important that they’re able to convince audiences they don’t want to tear each other’s clothes off.

These 15 couples were hired to play siblings but, inconveniently, found themselves wanting to play Flowers in the Attic when the cameras stopped rolling. If you think about it, if their real-life relationship seems weird to viewers, then they’re doing their jobs well. On the other hand, most of these couples didn’t last, so maybe they weren’t able to get past their familial feelings in the end.

What it comes down to is that a pivotal character in a film or TV show was never really there. They helped the hero find their emotional strength or served as a scapegoat for the unspeakable acts the protagonist has committed, but in the end, they were nothing but a hallucination.

David Fincher’s classic film isn’t the only story that pulled a Fight Club. But even if the protagonist is revealed as mentally unstable straight off the bat, we can’t go around assuming that it’s always a Tyler Durden thing. That’s why it’s always impressive when a writer is able to pull it off, especially if they’ve peppered the story with subtle hints that only come to light on the second viewing. Sometimes things will stand out right away. Others clues require even more scrutiny and repeated viewings to notice. But it’s always thrilling when a great story is can keep you guessing and surprises you with the reveal that one of the main characters was never really there.

Let’s hear it for these 15 Amazingly Subtle Clues That Characters Were Imaginary All Along. Spoilers abound, naturally.
