Hollywood is full of celeb brothers and sisters, but not everyone can be famous. There are tons of non-famous people with famous siblings who pop up now and then on celeb gossip sites. For example, did you know that pop powerhouses Britney and Jamie-Lynn Spears aren’t the only scions of the Spears dynasty? In fact, their oldest sibling is Bryan, who’s produced for both his siblings.
And then there’s Braison Cyrus, the brother of pop star Miley Cyrus. He doesn’t seem likely to remain one of the unknown siblings of well-known siblings, as he’s gaining fame as a model and singer. As far as unknown brothers of stars, don’t miss Andrew Wilson, sibling of funnymen Luke and Owen. And then there are the unknown sisters of stars – have you heard of Alana Hadid? She’s a stylist and the older half-sister of models Bella and Gigi Hadid.

Frankie voiced Sōsuke in the English dub of Ponyo in 2009. He has also appeared in several of his brothers’ projects, including Cap Rock 2: The Final Jam and Married to Jonas.
