Playing a family on a television series or in a movie is a truly special experience. These actors are put together and need to convince the audience that they really are bonded as any brothers and sisters, and parents and children are, so it's only natural for these people to really bond with one another off-screen. Once filming wraps, not all former co-stars keep in touch, but no matter where they happen o run into their former families, it's always the cutest for fans to see too.
Just take the Wizards of Waverly Place cats. The Russo family — plus Alex's BFF Harper— reunited at castmate David Henrie's wedding and seeing how much they still feel like an actual family is kind of amazing.
"Very much in my feelings about my big brother getting married. Even though we for sure knew it would be him first. May God bless you and your beautiful wife Henrie! 💕," Selena Gomez wrote in the caption of this comparison photo she shared on Instagram.
After all these years, they're still a family and seeing the Russo kids back with their fictional parents gets you right in the feels, every time.
