Same Birthday

Here's a bit of trivia that might not surprise you. Erin Murphy, who played young Tabitha on the series "Bewitched" shares a birthday with her twin sister Diane Murphy, who also played young Tabitha on "Bewitched". They were born June 17, 1964, making them both 55 years old (as of two days ago - Happy Birthday!) It would be a bit unusual if they hadn't both come into the world on the exact same day. But they aren't the only famous people to do that. Other, unrelated, famous people share the exact same birthday - month, day and year.

On the left are the names of three famous people, along with the date that they were born. For each of those names you'll see the names of three more famous people on the right. Your job in each set is to pick the person on the right who was born on the very same day as the person listed on the left. Some of the matches might surprise you.
