15 of the Favorite On-Screen Siblings


Much as we love a good romance – and if you’re like me, we are loyal to our OTPS, there are different kinds of relationships we like to explore in our film, TV shows or novels. One of these is that between siblings. As I think on some of these sibling bonds, I decided to create a list of some favorite on screen siblings. At least this sounds like a good idea at the time.


To be honest, I really cannot think of all that many as I struggle to think of warm relationships between siblings. More often than not, it’s a bit manipulative or uncaring. Or perhaps I’m just watching the wrong things? Either way, I had to think hard to come up with some of these siblings pairs. That said, those I did think of are some of my favorite characters.

15 Favorite On Screen Siblings!

1: Anna and Elsa

From: Disney’s Frozen

I mean how can I put together a list such as this and not include these two? They have a rough start, but in the end, they’re there for each other and that’s what makes this more heartwarming.

2: The Baxter Sisters

From: ABC’s, now Fox’s Last Man Standing

These girl’s do argue – a lot, but there’s also those episodes where they get along, and have each others back.

3: Chuck and Ellie Bartowski

From: NBC’s Chuck

I mean, these two…! They’re just so much fun. I love that Ellie is the serious, protective sister, and that Chuck struggles keeping so many secrets from her. Oh, and I even come to quite like Captain Awesome aka Devin.

4: The Bennet Sisters

From: Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice

This really only applies to Jane and Elizabeth since Lydia and Kitty are sort of annoying (although to be fair, they share a bit of a bond like Jane and Elizabeth), and poor Mary, well, she seems to be forgotten. Still, at the end of the day, I think no matter their flaws, most of these women (with exception to perhaps Kitty!) would stand up for each other.

5: The Dashwood Sisters

From: Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility

Back to back characters from Austen. Really, these may be the only two sets of siblings that I really like from Austen. Although to be fair, I seem to remember Fanny Price and her brother being close, too.

6: Amy and Lou Fleming

From: CBC’s Heartland

Like so many, these sisters argue and sometimes just plain don’t get along, but fortunately, they also get along when they need to, and because of this, they are, when needed, each other’s strongest ally.

7: Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes (and Enola, too!)

From: Sir. Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes

Since I am still in edits with this list post watching Enola Holmes (the new Netflix adaptation), I can happily add her name to the mix. Mycroft is WAY bossy in this movie (love him in the BBC adaptation though), but I quite like seeing Sherlock as more of a family guy and the softer, better brother to Enola. Still, in some variations, these brothers are hilarious if not supportive.

8: The March Sisters

From: Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women

These sisters are iconic characters that had to be on this type of list. They’re a caring, warm and bright quartet of sisters who we always love to see reimagined in any new adaptation.

9: Steve and Mary McGarrett

From: CBS’ Hawaii Five-o

These two didn’t play a large role in the entirety of the show, but when Mary did appear here and there, the bond is strong, and allowed us to see a different side of lead character, Steve; that of a protective brother.

10: The O’Brien Siblings

From: Hallmark’s Chesapeake Shores

Chesapeake Shores Season 3

This group of five siblings has its share of squabbles and issues, but they are family, and usually are able to work through their normal sibling arguments. Plus, the cast plays everyone really well, too.

11: The Pevensie Siblings

From: C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia

Love these siblings so much. I met them first in the novel, but everyone who plays them in the film adaptation.

12: The Raegan Siblings

From: CBS’ Blue Bloods

I love these three siblings so very much. This “true blue” family goes through so much, and yet through it all, the writing of this show keeps their bonds strong. On an unrelated, but kind of related note, I’m both nervous and hopeful to see the return of this show; the former because I fear the producers/writers are going to let who these characters represent down, and hopeful because as it stands when last it aired, this show is one of the best in the business.

12: DJ and Stephanie Tanner

From: Netflix’s Fuller House

Never watched Full House (that I can remember), but I have seen some of these. It’s a cute little re-boot of the classic show where everyone is all grown up, including the Tanner sisters. Find exclusively on Netflix

14: The Viara Siblings

From: Instant Family (Feature Film)

The relationship between these siblings isn’t necessarily the focus in this film, but it does play a part, and I like their cute bond.

15: Oliver and Thea Queen

From: CW’s Arrow

Rocky start is an accurate description of these two, but still, I like this unusual crime-fighting sib pair. They grow a lot, and while I haven’t finished this story, I do think the growth continues.
