Anaïs Bordier always knew she was adopted. Her birth certificate said she was born in Busan, South Korea; an only child to a young, unmarried woman. Anaïs grew up in France in a loving home with loving parents. In February 2013 her whole life would change.

Now 25 years old, Anaïs was studying fashion in London when she stumbled upon a YouTube video featuring an actress in Los Angeles named Samantha Futerman. The resemblance was uncanny. Not only did they look nearly identical but they had similar mannerisms and idiosyncrasies; the only difference was their accent.

The YouTube video was a trailer which meant the actress (and doppelgänger) would likely have an IMDB profile. Anaïs was right, and when she brought up her profile it said Samantha was born on November 19, 1987 in South Korea. The date matched Anaïs’ birth certificate.

    Wow this is incredible! For as much as I sometimes think the internet has caused problems in the world, this is a case to say it has been beneficial! How amazing… Same face , same family but different languages and cultures… Very cool story. Thanks for sharing this with us!

      It is such an incredible story, and definitely a tribute to social media. Although as my Buddhist friends would say, it was their karma to be reunited again, they would have found a way 😉 Still, sometimes it feels very good to live in the 21st century and feel that the world is at your finger tips, that you don’t need to brave all the elements to travel the world.. Have a beautiful WE, Shiny hugs from the Philippines my dear !
