The final of the primary six to formally join the ensemble was Jennifer Aniston
Aniston, who is now one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actresses, had just started acting when the “Friends” series pilot was shot. She claimed that because producers were unsure of whether she would continue playing Rachel in the programme, they requested her to skip the majority of the main cast picture session. Aniston established herself as a crucial member of the group and went on to win an Emmy for her portrayal of Rachel Green.
The show was originally going to end with Monica and Joey together, but the actors’ chemistry on set changed everything.
According to executive producer and co-creator Marta Kauffman, a lot of the show’s elements altered as the ensemble members’ on-screen chemistry grew. As said by Kauffman, “You set out to do things, and then actors come in and give it life, and it is not quite what you imagined it was going to be”. For instance, Joey was going to end up with Monica, who was only scheduled to spend a small amount of time with Chandler.
Ross and Rachel were destined to be together, even though it did not seem that way at the time.
Even though Ross and Rachel have established themselves as the classic will-they-won’t-they couple, co-creator David Crane always felt they would get together. He claimed that, even while considering different conclusions, it felt hard for him and Kauffman to finish the show with Ross and Rachel wholly apart.
