Friends series hit the television for the first time on September 22, 1994. But, till now the fun hasn’t died, rather we enjoy it more than ever. People watch it 8-9th time and are still not satisfied, they might keep doing it for many more years to come. And such is the power of Friends.
The time when it started, people may not have anticipated the success it might gain, but as the show kept on rolling, the potential was realized. Everyone started to notice it’s something the world will remember forever.
We have brought to you some bits of confessions and secrets and behind-the-scenes moments from Friends series. All information was sourced by The Guardian. So let’s enjoy it and have fun! We are sure you will find out many new things here:
The Vegas Trip Confession
In here you see a pic from the past posted by Courtney Cox. The pic is from a time when people didn’t know them as Monica, Ross, Joey, Chandler, Phoebe and Rachel. Actually, many people didn’t even know they existed. There is an interesting story associated with this photo you might be interested in. It turns out, James was damn sure about Friends! He already knew the show is going to be huge and will make them all famous like never before. Still, we doubt he might not have imagined the actual level of success the show owns right now.
Barry Was Ross
Do you remember Barry? He is the guy who looks like Mr Potato Head in Rachel’s imagination. If still, that’s not enough then he is the orthodontist guy whom Rachel left at the altar. Mitchell Whitfield, the real name of Barry, explains the incident as follows, ‘I went back multiple times, and then they realized Ross was the role for me. I got down to the very end and was testing for the show. At the last minute, they said: “We’re bringing in one more guy to read.” That guy turned out to be David Schwimmer.’
Fun Bobby And His Confession
We all remember Monica’s one of the many boyfriends, Fun Booby and of course his unforgettable cry at Monica’s New Year Eve Party after his grandpa died. He said, ‘I was so young and full of myself, it was a really small part, so, of course, I’m whining like a little actor. But something inside me told me, just do it. So I went in and cried in front of [creator] Marta Kauffman, and she was like: “Great!”
Chandler and Mr Treeger used to hang out even before the show
Mr Treeger, the building superintendent at Chandler’s apartment building, was played by Mike Hagerty. He confessed to knowing Chandler even before they were on the sets of Friends. It’s quite interesting to know that they would meet at the Formosa bar in Santa Monica and chat. But they always visited the place separately, maybe it was destined for them to meet at the sets of one epic show! Hagerty called him ‘precocious’ but ‘very interesting.’ These two words surely describe Chandler Bing!
Joey behind the camera didn’t always have the swagger
Christina Pickles or Judy Gellar, as we know her on the show, opened up about Joey and explained how he wasn’t much confident during the initial days. She said, “At the beginning of Friends, Matt LeBlanc was anxious, every time he did something, he would look for approval to the director, the producers or the writers if they were around.” Judy surely was a nitpicker whenever she met Monica, but we didn’t know she did it for others too. It makes us wonder, was Joey nervous while kissing Judy on the sets of Friends? Well, we don’t know that yet, but we know that Judy surely loved all the cast members and have seen them grow from their initial days to the stars they are now.
