Kate Beckinsale and Rhona Mitra not only look alike, they are actually pretty similar in their personal lives as well. Both Beckinsale and Mitra were born in England in the 70′s and are only three years apart from each other. In fact, Beckinsale was born in 1973 and is now 36 (wow, she looks much younger) and Mitra was born in 1976 and is now 33. Both actresses are the same height, have the same hair color and length, same eye color and of course same bone strucure.
Beckinsale and Mitra also followed the same film path for the most part and those paths have crossed for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Rhona Mitra played Sonja, the daughter of vampire ruler Viktor who executed her when she fell in love and was impregnated by a Lycan. Kate Beckinsale played a young girl who was “saved” by Viktor after he slaughtered her family and turned her into a vampire because she reminded him so much of his daughter Sonja.
Mitra might not have been as famous as Beckinsale in past years but she is definitely doing her part to catch up by guest starring in numerous TV shows like Party of Five, The Practice, Boston Legal, Nip/Tuck, Stargate Universe and the newest ABC vampire series, The Gates. Speaking of vampires, both Mitra and Beckinsale have played vampires but only Beckinsale played a vampire hunter in Van Helsing. I love love love both of them and hopefully we’ll get to see these two beautiful ladies in a movie together again.
