Twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen started their careers as babies in the TV series, Full House, and have gone on to become teen idols and successful business women as adults
. Because child labor laws set restrictions on the number of hours a child actor could work, the sisters were cast as a single character on Full House at the age of six months in 1987. Though fraternal twins, they continued to portray the single character until the show concluded in 1995.
The Olsens continued to...
appear together and separately and became quite popular in the pre-teen market of the late 1990s. Upon their 18th birthday the sisters became co-presidents of Dualstar, the company they established in 1993 to produce their television and film work and later consumer goods to promote their celebrity. Mary-Kate and Ashley have come to be regarded as fashion icons and proceeded to launch their own couture fashion label, The Row in 2007.
