Our favorite ‘90s TV siblings are reuniting for a family Christmas movie.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Darius McCrary and Kellie Shangyne Williams, who starred on Family Matters as the brother-sister duo Eddie and Laura Winslow, are joining sibling-forces yet again in the rom-com holiday film, Christmas in Caroline.
We first met McCrary and Williams at 11-years-old on the hit sitcom. Now, 30 years later, the Winslow kids are all grown up but their sibling bond hasn’t faded.

We caught up with McCrary and Williams for a special Family Matters 30th Anniversary Celebration and they shared what life was really like growing up in front of the camera.


From teenage rivalry to adulthood, we can’t seem to get enough of these two. The film follows Elle (Joslyn Y. Hall of Atlanta), a career-driven investment banker who’s given up on finding love and the Christmas spirit after losing her parents in a car accident.

But then she meets Wesley (David L. Rowell of Complicated), a former NBA player and CEO of a small marketing firm. He impetuously invites Elle home for Christmas in South Carolina with his mom and uncle — Williams and McCrary. Hesitantly, Elle accepts and is thrown for a loop when she falls in love and finds the spirit of Christmas again.

The sibling reunion comes as a first for the pair since their Family Matters days. Now, viewers can fall in love all over again with two of our favorite Winslows. Christmas in Caroline, written by Stacie Davis and directed by Peggy Williams, will premiere On-Demand and On-Digital on Nov. 1.
