Actress Futerman and twin sister co-writing memoir


| Zoom

NEW YORK (AP) - Actress Samantha Futerman is collaborating on a book about her improbable discovery that she had an identical twin.

Futerman, whose credits include the TV series "The Big C" and the film "Memoirs of a Geisha," has a deal with G.P Putnam's Sons. She will work on the book with Anais Bordier, the adopted daughter of a French family whose friends had seen Futerman's movies and swore that the actress and Bordier looked exactly alike.

Bordier learned that she and Futerman, who grew up in New Jersey, were born in the same town in South Korea on Nov. 19, 1987. She contacted Futerman earlier this year through Facebook and the women discovered in May they were indeed twins.

"Our incredible twist of fate can lift one to rejoice that anything is possible, and the biggest boundaries in life are the ones we set for ourselves," Futerman said in a statement issued by Putnam, a division of Penguin Random House.

"There are so many possibilities and so many crazy things that happen in a lifetime, and it is a gift to embrace them all," she said. "All I know is I have an innate, unconditional love toward this relative stranger."

Putnam announced Tuesday that the book is currently untitled and is scheduled to come out in the fall of 2014.
