One Hollywood trick when it comes to elaborate mirror scenes, is through the use of twins. The most famous example has to be in Terminator 2: Judgment Day when James Cameron used Linda Hamilton's twin sister during a mirror scene and also when the T-1000 took Sarah Connor's form.

Most recently, this special trick was used in Edgar Wright's Last Night in Soho.

During Ellie's first dream sequence, there is an elaborate mirror sequence where she enters the club and has her jacket removed by an attendant. When she looks in the reflection, however, she sees the face of Sandie looking back at her.

As mentioned, to achieve this trick, Wright employed twins for the sequence but eagle-eyed viewers can quickly notice that the twin actors are not just any actors, but one of the most recognizable ones out there.

Lo and behold, James and Oliver Phelps, best known as Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter films, were used for this sequence. Despite their brief appearance that could easily be missed, it's still nice to see these famous twins appear in a high-profile project such as this.
