Living just an hour away from her, she found out that 29-year-old Karen Branigan could pass as her twin.

Geaney told Daily Mail, "I was ridiculously nervous about how I would react to meeting someone who looks like me. For the entire duration of our encounter I pretty much stared at her. I couldn't get over her face, and some of the expressions she would pull, I would think to myself or say aloud, 'Oh my God, that's my face.'"
