Where are Topsy and Tim now? The child stars have become moderately successful actors

Topsy and Tim was a popular television series based on a series of children’s books authored by Jean Adamson and Gareth Adamson about twins and their adventures. Jean Adamson told The Guardian that she and her husband trained as book illustrators and set about illustrating their own children’s books.

At the time, England was steadily rising from the rubble of World War II, and bright colors were making a comeback. Gareth and Jean observed a shortage of children’s books and came up with Topsy and Tim. The books were first published in 1960 and relaunched in 2003. Over 20 million copies of Topsy and Tim have been sold.

Topsy and Tim the series was perhaps more popular than the books. 64 episodes aired from 2013 and 2015 before production halted. Jocelyn Macnab played Topsy and Joshua Lester played Tom.

Jocelyn Macnab and Joshua Lester went on to have moderate success as actors

No. Jocelyn Macnab and Joshua Lester are not real life twins. However, they executed their roles so well, almost everyone thought they were twins in real life.

They went their separate ways after the show ended and pursued different acting opportunities. Macnab has more acting credits than Joshua, but they both have found roles in major productions hard to come by.

Jocelyn appeared in Bing from 2014 to 2019; and Hetty Feather and Sarah Duck from 2015 to 2016. She also had a minor role in The Last Kingdom (2015). Joshua played minor roles in Raa Raa the Noisy Lion (2017) and The CBeebies House Show (2019).
