Kimberly Williams-Paisley stars alongside sister Ashley

On Sunday (5 December), sisters Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Ashley Williams will feature alongside each other as the new Hallmark movie Sister Swap: A Hometown Holiday premieres.

Audiences may be familiar with Kimberly as Annie Banks in Father Of The Bride and Gretchen in Two And A Half Men. Elsewhere her sister Ashley is known for her feature in How I Met Your Mother as Ted’s ex-girlfriend Victoria.

The real-life sisters will play on-screen sisters Jennifer (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) and Meg Swift (Ashley Williams). Jennifer is a restauranter who lives in Salt Lake City with her teenage son, while Meg lives in their hometown of Hazelwood and helps their parents run a local bakery.

Sister Swap: A Hometown Holiday’s storyline interconnects with a second film Sister Swap: Christmas in the City, which airs next week (12 December), as the two sisters switch cities in the lead up to the holidays.

Who are Kimberly Williams-Paisley’s siblings?

Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Ashley Williams have one other sibling, brother Jay. The Williams brother is seen to have briefly followed in the footsteps of his sisters into film, with Jay having credits on his IMDb for short films Numeros Dos and Shade.

He now works as a firefighter and beekeeper and also runs his own honey farm. Jay recently appeared alongside his sisters in a family Instagram live in September as they caught up on what they had been up to as well as looking back on their childhood together.

Over the years, both sisters have featured their brother on their Instagram feeds, with Kimberly posting of both Jay and Ashey in honour of national sibling day earlier this year:
