She Has A Twin Sister

Erin has a fraternal twin sister named Diane Murphy. Diane was born five minutes earlier than her, and she was also a child actress. Their mother caved in and signed them up with a talent agency after the young twins indicated that they would like to try their hands at acting. Like her sister, Diane also played the role of Tabitha Stephens on Bewitched, taking turns with her sister until they began to look a lot less alike and Erin had to take over the character completely.

However, Diane wasn’t particularly interested in the acting industry, as she gave it up at 13. Backed by an MBA, she has gone on to pursue a career in business. Sometime in August 2017, Erin revealed through Twitter that Diane is gay.
