It's been double trouble for Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and the FBI on The Following, thanks to the terrifying twins Mark and Luke (both played by Sam Underwood). But despite what we've learned so far about the diabolical duo, viewers shouldn't assume that Luke is the one who's calling all the shots, according to Underwood.
"On the surface, [Luke is the leader], yes," Underwood tells TVGuide.com. "But Mark also has a huge amount of power over Luke. You see that in the first episode when Luke is about to go all crazy on Carlos. Just before he's about to kill him, Mark kind of reins him in. ... He has the ability to be able to do that with Luke because of their relationship. Luke is the front-man of the band. He's the Paul McCartney. But Mark is the Ringo Starr. He's there keeping it all together, even though he's not at the very front."

The siblings are a double dose or wrong, yet Sam Underwood, who plays both roles, is so right. But who is he? To find out, read (sorry) the following!
He's British: Even though he packs a nearly perfect American accent, Underwood is actually from Surrey, England. "You didn't realize?" he asks. "Oh good!"
The Following blindsided viewers with a game-changing twist last week, exposing Lily Gray (Connie Nielsen), who had been positioned as a new love interest for Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon), as a devotee of Ryan's nemesis, Joe Carroll (James Purefoy).

In order to get out of his latest beef with Paxton, Boyd convinces Sheriff Mooney to switch sides in the battle and tells Paxton he had indeed murdered Boyd. But in order to pull off the scheme, Mara suggests Paxton will need to see a dead body — or at least part of one. Ultimately, the pair decides — after upping the sexual tension by taking a guided tour of the tattoos on Boyd's naked torso — to re-create Boyd's ink on one of the body parts in Paxton's own morgue as a stand-in. Ironically, if prison-bound Ava knew about Boyd and Mara's sexy stand-off in the bar, Boyd might already be a...
