As always, Mary-Kate and Ashley and their Dualstar Entertainment Group are setting a new standard -- not just for teen stars, but for superstars of any age. Their achievements are not only limited to television, however, as multi-platinum certifications for each of the 20 The Adventures Of Mary-Kate & Ashley musical detective home videos and You're Invited live action party tapes have proven -- ranking Dualstar Video second only two Disney in KidVid titles charted for each of the past three years.
Their first movie-length, direct-to-video project, Billboard Dad, released by Warner Home Video in November 1998, has already achieved multi-platinum sales. A new direct-to-video title, Passport To Paris, was filmed in Europe this summer and is set for release in November 1999. The movie captures a special moment in the girl's lives -- their first on screen kiss!
Mary-Kate and Ashley were born June 13, 1986. While they appear to be identical twins they are fraternal -- with Ashley, who is right-handed, born two minutes before southpaw Mary-Kate. They live in Los Angeles with older brother Trent, and younger sister Elizabeth -- who have appeared in their videos from time to time. The girls were voted Favorite Television Actresses for 1999 at the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards, beating Melissa Joan Hart, Jennifer Aniston, and Sarah Michelle Gellar and were recently named Teen Ambassadors to the Women's World Cup Soccer Tournament.
