The Sprouses were born to American parents Matthew Sprouse and Melanie Wright in Clinica Tanganelli, a small hospital in Arezzo, Italy, when they were teaching at an English language school in Tuscany. Dylan is named after the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, and Cole is named after the jazz singer and pianist Nat King Cole.
They moved to England when Matt was hired by Cambridge University as a professor of linguistics. Here they raised their children in the country that would one day become their home away from home: Britain. They also traveled frequently for work until Matt was offered a position at Stanford University in California. When not traveling or working, the family spent their time enjoying British culture and food and exploring the countryside near their home in Oxfordshire.
Matt taught linguistics at Cambridge for 16 years before moving to California. There he worked on his own project called "The World's Largest Language Tree", which tracks the history of the world's languages using statistical methods. This project earned him a Nobel Prize in 2013 along with David M. Hillier and Stephen R. Wilson who shared the award with him. He has published several books including The Atlas of Languages, which features a map for every language on Earth.
Melanie stayed at the English language school in Tuscany while pregnant with Dylan. She gave birth to him in April 1991, just two months after the hospital where she was teaching closed down due to lack of income.
The Sprouses were born in the Italian town of Arezzo. Matthew Sprouse and Melanie Wright are their parents. Dylan and Cole's parents are American, but when they were born, they were teaching at an English language school in Tuscany. Cole is 15 minutes older than Dylan. They have the same mother but different fathers.
Cole was born on January 4th, 1996, and Dylan on January 5th, 1998. This means that Cole will be going into his third year next month and Dylan will be going into his second year later this year.
It also means that Cole has three years of high school left him and then he'll be going to college, while Dylan will be finishing up his last year of high school and then starting college too.
So basically, they do everything together and are always there for each other. Even though they're twins, they still have their own individual personality which we can see in some of their actions and things like that.
Cole likes to watch movies and play video games, while Dylan likes to go out with his friends and party. But either way, they love each other and support each other whatever they do.
He's my identical twin brother. We've been working together since we were little kids.
Since they were on the Disney Channel Games, a lot has occurred, and it's time to check up with our favorite twins other than the Olsen twins. Melanie Wright and Matthew Sprouse gave birth to Dylan and Cole Sprouse in Arezzo, Tuscany, Italy. When the twins were just four months old, the family returned to the United States. They currently live in Los Angeles, California.
Melanie is an American actress. She began her career as a child model when she was two years old. She had several minor roles in television shows and movies before being cast as Marissa Wooten on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody in 2009. The same year, she played Katie Morrell in the film The Last Kiss.
Cole is a singer-songwriter and actor. He and his twin brother Dylan became famous after joining the Disney Channel singing group Game Play until 2013 when they decided to quit to focus on their music career. Before joining Game Play, Cole played Kevin McCallister in the Disney series 8 Things About Mary. In 2010, he appeared in the films The Last Song and Death at a Funeral. In 2014, he starred in the film The Drop Off along with Anna Kendrick and Imogen Poots.
Both brothers have been nominated for Young Artist Awards for their work on Game Play. They won the award for Best Performance in a Variety or Music Series for their work on the show in 2011.
Dylan Thomas Sprouse and Cole Mitchell Sprouse were born in Italy on August 4, 1992, but grew up in California. The twin boys are barely 15 minutes apart, with Dylan being the eldest. They have an older sister named Taylor who is also an actress.
They have a family business that they can call their own. The Sprouse twins run a web design company called Twin Stars Creative with their friend Jake Rodkin. The company has offices in Los Angeles, California and Toronto, Canada.
They started working on their first movie when they were just 11 years old. It was called The Sprouse Twins: A Twist of Fate and it came out in 2014. The film told the story of two twins who swap bodies after they are involved in a car accident. One of them must try to save the other one's life before it is too late.
After making their first movie they wanted to keep acting in their lives but still had school to go to. So, they decided to study communications at American University in Washington D.C. While they were attending this university, they took part in many projects including a series called Rookie Blue. This is a Canadian police drama that has been running for almost 10 years now.
At the time, their parents were supposedly English instructors in Tuscany, which sounds ideal. They named their boys after Nat King Cole and Dylan Thomas, which is amazing—I would want to meet these people. Dylan is 15 minutes older. Four months after the twins were born, the family relocated back to Southern California.
Their father is Michael Sprouse. He was born on December 4th, 1964 in Los Angeles, California. His mother's name is Virginia Mae Futch. She was born on January 20th, 1945 in El Paso, Texas. Their father had two other children from another marriage: a daughter who is eight years younger than Cole and a son who is four years younger than Dylan. Their family lived in Lancaster, California when they first moved to America. Later on, they moved to Burbank where Mr. Sprouse worked as an art director for Warner Bros. Television.
He met his wife while working at Warner Bros. Her name is Candice Frederickson. They married in 1993 and have two more daughters together. Their family lives in Beverly Hills, California.
Mr. Sprouse grew up with music in his blood. His father was also into music, he played guitar and sang along with rock songs by The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin. When Mr. Sprouse was 11 years old, he and his family went on a trip to Mexico.
