FRIENDS Trivia #15: We wouldn’t lie but we’ve been enjoying jotting down all the unknown facts about our favourite squad. We hope you’ve been liking it too! By the end of the show, we saw Jennifer Aniston-David Schwimmer (Rachel-Ross) and Matthew Perry-Courteney Cox (Chandler-Monica) turn out to be the endgame. But did you know Lisa Kudrow AKA Phoebe thought one of those boys would turn out gay? Haha, read on!
It all happened when the entire cast met for the first time for a script reading. Lisa Kudrow seemed to have gotten the ‘weird’ Phoebe into her when she read all the characters and assumed that one of these guys would eventually turn out to be gay. It was only looking at their acting skills, she realised that the actor finally gave life to their character and proved her wrong.
We’re talking about our classic Matthew Perry AKA Chandler Bing. Yes, you read it right. Kudrow herself revealed about it all as she shared with Comedy Central saying, “Matthew Perry was cast at the very last minute. The table read was the first time I met everybody, and saw everyone, and learned their names… and then was blown away by… especially Matthew Perry, because when I read the script I thought Chandler, oh, so he’s the gay character.”
Lisa Kudrow continued, “That’s the gay character. And then Matthew – oh, he’s not gay at all… he’s doing it, but the character’s not gay, how is he doing that? Oh my gosh, to me that was just, wow, that’s like a magic trick, that’s fantastic. “Hilarious. His timing… to me he had such a unique comedic voice. That was very thrilling.”
