Season 3 SABC2 (*192) 23:00 Sci-fi
Max and Charlie Carver are twice as nice as werewolves Aiden and Ethan in sci-fi series Teen Wolf (2011-current), pretty different from their time playing troublemaker twins Preston and Porter Scavo on dramedy Desperate Housewives (2004-2012). “We actually start off shirtless and not speaking and work our way up to more than one or two lines,” says singleton Charlie, who came out of the closet in January 2016.
Max has been dating his former 1
Teen Wolf co-star Holland Roden (Lydia) since 2014.
Teen Wolf is one of four shows the 2
28-year-olds have played twins on – they were Adam and Scott Frost in scifi show (The Leftovers (2014-2017) and play Andrew and Elliot Bloom later this year in MTV drama show Blooms.
Carver isn’t even their real sur3
name. Charlie’s full name is Charles Carver Martensen and Max’s is Robert Maxwell Martensen Jr.
The identical twins have different 4
birthdays – Charlie was born just before midnight on 31 July 1988 and Max a few minutes later on 1 August.
Something they did do together 5
was graduate, both receiving their Bachelors in English from the University Of Southern California in 2012.
So how do you tell them apart? 6
Max is slightly taller than Charlie, who has a rounder, less-chiselled jaw. Also, they have matching tattoos, but Max’s rocket is on the outside of his bicep while Charlie’s is on the inside.
And while they share their twitter 7
account @TheCarverTwins, they also have their own accounts @Charlie_ Carver and @maxcarver. Charlie is the more popular with 805 000 followers, 200 000 more than Max.
