Okay, but I'm sorry I don't understand your answer what Cathy means with her last statement "No they aren't."

Does she want to say "No, they are not the same" or is possible she wants to say "No, that is wrong, they are the same"?

This question has been answered correctly multiple times. Back in posts #10-#14 it seemed clear to you.

yes you all said it means "they are not the same person".
But User cat said it's also possible that it can mean "No that's wrong. They are the same person". So I wanted to know more about it. Or did I missunderstand Cat?

...and that is the correct interpretation. I recommend you stop at that so you are not further confused.

Cat is not a native English speaker and I don't understand what she's saying, either

Bottom line: No, they aren't [the same person]. Period. End of story.

lol (laughing out loud) as an English interpretation.

[why does this remind me of my brother? If he didn't like the answer to the question, then he'd just ask it again, and again, as though that would change the answer. So he'd ask, "can I have candy" and the answer was, "no", so he'd ask again, because he wanted candy, and the answer was still, "no". This, however, didn't stop him from asking again.]

She says is a naturalized American. She was not born here.

Oh didn't see this.
And you also saw the whole conversation (not only the snippet) and there it's clear that Cathy's last sentence "No they aren't" means "No, they are not the same person" correct?

Whole conversation:
Bryan: Is that an old photo of your friend?
Cathy: No, I don't think so.
Bryan: Okay, I always need to think about that person on the picture, who I thought was your friend. But they are not the same then.
Cathy (looks closer): No they aren't.
