“Well… They *do* say everyone has a twin…

or triplet even…”

Monica, Tess, and Andrew must have gotten confused sometimes when their assignments really started to resemble each other! J One of the most amusing and, in the case of a really good actor, best things about TBAA was that they weren’t afraid to have the same actor play two or even three characters during the show’s run. Someone might play Satan one episode and a gospel singer a few seasons later! It was fun to try and keep track of them all. I tried to think of as many of the actors who played double roles as possible (and used the Touched.com site to get others). If you can think of any I missed feel free to email meIf there are stars around the name that means the character was angelic or demonic.
