Creepy twins from horror classic The Shining in London to mourn the Queen

The creepy twins from horror classic The Shining queued for hours to mourn Queen Elizabeth II at her lying-in-state.

Lisa and Louise Burns, who played the Grady girls in Stanley Kubrick's 1980s flick, queued all night to see the late monarch at Westminster Hall on Sunday, September 18.

The 53-year-olds live tweeted their experience after receiving their wristbands at around 12.30pm.

The pair lauded the kindness of the Holy Trinity church on Dockhead after being given cake as they queued past the iconic Tower Bridge.

At around 4.27pm, the native Londoners wrote: “Only a few more hours!” as they posed in front of the Houses of Parliament.

Speaking to the Daily Mail in 2015, the twins said that despite moving away from the film industry, they continue to travel the world to make special guest appearances at horror film conventions.

Reflecting on their childhood fame, they said they would even play with Jack Nicholson between scenes.

They said: “Every day felt like we’d been invited to a very exclusive party and we were the youngest, luckiest people to be there.

“Stanley [Kubrick] wanted us on set every single day, so between scenes we would play with Danny [Lloyd] and Jack [Nicholson].”

Lisa went on to study English literature while Louise currently works as a microbiologist, reports suggest.

Louise and Lisa Burns were just 12 years old when they played the spooky sisters who haunted the Overlook Hotel.

The twins told Cosmopolitan that they were "naturally spooky."

The sisters told the publication: "We did practice our timing, saying things in union, and we worked on saying our lines in a hallow, other-worldly kind of way a number of times."

While the film left fans terrified, Louisa and Lisa say they were never scared filming the movie.

They said: “We saw people in scary make-up, but it always felt more like we were at an elaborate fancy dress party.

“It just wasn’t that freaky.”
