OMG! Rachel Was Almost Played By This Actress On Friends!

Apr 10, 2017

Just when you thought you knew everything about Friends, they drop this bombshell on us.

Everyone fell in love with Rachel Green when she first appeared on our TV screens and these days, it would be hard picturing her being played by anyone other than Jennifer Aniston.

The funny thing is though, she almost was!

According to Courtney Cox, the producers of the iconic show were originally thinking of casting her as Rachel!

Courtney played Monica Gellar throughout the series and this news has completely blown our minds!

Whilst being interviewed on Off Camera With Sam Jones, the actress explained that she always thought she wasn’t right to play Rachel.

“For some reason, I thought I related more to Monica, which maybe it’s because I do.

“I’m very similar to her.

“I’m not as clean as Monica, but I am neat.

“And I’m not as competitive, even though some people, my partner Johnny McDaid, would say I am.”

She explained that when Jennifer was offered the role she knew she would do an amazing job and of course, she did.

“That was lightning in a bottle, to have those writers, those creators of the show, and the team they put together, and the actors.

“It just worked.

“I mean, the casting was perfect. It really was.”

We couldn’t agree more!

Could you imagine Courtney as Rachel?

 

That would have been very interesting to see…
