Rachel Lindsay Rene Bush and Sidney Robyn Danae Bush (born May 25, 1970 in Hollywood, California) are former child actresses, best known for their combined (alternating) role as Carrie Ingalls, in the drama series Little House on the Prairie. They are twin sisters, born to actor Billy "Green" Bush and Carole Kay Bush. Their brother, Clay, is also an actor.
Prior to Little House on the Prairie debuting on September 11, 1974, they starred in the made-for-television drama Sunshine (1973), as Jill Hayden. In 1978, in the season five Little House episode "The Godsister", the sisters are shown together playing different characters. The twins' final appearance on the series was on May 10, 1982. In the final season, their absence was explained that the family (except Laura) moved to Burr Oak, Iowa to build a much better life. Several months later, the series was canceled. The opening credits of the series showed one of the twins running in a meadow behind the credit "Lindsay Sidney Greenbush" leading many viewers to believe that was the actress' full name.
In 1983, Lindsay guest starred in a Matt Houston episode as an abuse victim. Sidney starred in the film, Hambone and Hillie in 1983. The twins starred in a few commercials, Doublemint Gum, Mattel Toys, Kentucky Fried Chicken, etc.
The twins decided to retire from acting, and continue their studies at public school. They graduated from Santa Monica High, in 1988.
Sidney was married to horse breeder William "Rocky" Foster for nine years, until his death in 2009. Foster was 55 years old.
