Lisa Kudrow: She Explains The Lack Of Diversity In Friends

Although she has starred in classics like ‘Romy & Michelle’, Lisa Kudrow will always be remembered for having been Phoebe Buffay in the great ‘Friends’. The actress recently commented on what would have become of her character today, but speaking to The Sunday Times, Kudrow also acknowledged that, if Friends were filmed today, “it would be completely different. It would not be a completely white cast, that’s for sure.

Including Phoebe herself, the show’s six main characters were white and straight, just like most of her friends and acquaintances. Kudrow added that the series, which took place between 1994 and 2004, “should be viewed as a time capsule, not because of what they did wrong.”

The actress also commented that the show was ahead of its time in other ways, referencing the story of Ross (David Schwimmer) and his ex-wife Carol.”Let’s remember that Ross found out that his wife was gay and pregnant, and they raised the boy together. We also had a history of surrogacy. All of that, at the time, was quite progressive,” said Kudrow.

In fact, Schwimmer himself recently commented with The Guardian that he “was very aware of the lack of diversity” in ‘Friends’, so he insisted that Ross date black women. “

Although it is true that it had little inclusion, ‘Friends’ is still one of the most legendary series on television, and Kudrow is right in terms of the progress they made with certain topics at that time. Now it only remains to wait for the meeting of his cast in the HBO Max special.

He added that the cast and crew would rather offer the meeting in a truly satisfying format: “We are trying to look ahead and do this in a more conventional way, and I think it is worth the wait.” Frankly, I would take the Friends meeting in any way I could get right now.
