Friends was about six oddly insular characters who rarely let anyone else into their highly caffeinated clique – however over 10 series loads of other faces popped in to Central Perk or Joey’s bed for an episode or two.
So while we pretty much know what Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow and Matthew Perry are up to I thought it’s time to shine a light on the unsung heroes of the most repeated comedy on digital TV.
After the jump we catch-up with every support actor in Friends – including Chandler’s weird flatmate Eddie, Rachel’s fiancé Barry, Paulo, Janice, Mona, and Mr Heckles.
Just click for more and explore!
I haven’t included some star cameos like George Clooney, Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis and even Jean Claude Van Damme as you are probably fairly familiar with what they are up to now.
But I’ve kept in other star cameos like Winona Ryder, Susan Sarandon and Freddie Prinze Jr because I’m inconsistent like that (and wanted to research them a bit more).
Elliot Gould as Jack Geller
Since Friends he’s starred in Oceans Eleven (and it’s sequels) as Reuben Tishkoff. He’s also guest-starred on CSI and recently had a hip-replacement.
Elliott has been married three times (twice to the same woman) but is, as far as I know, currently single.
She also appeared in the He-Man movie ‘Masters of the Universe’ (co-starring with Courteney Cox) and played Romeo’s mum in Bas Luhrman’s ‘Romeo + Juliet’.

(in The One with the Evil Orthodontist)
Jennifer Grey became a star following her lead role in ‘Dirty Dancing’ and her support role in ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ – however a nose-job made her virtually unrecognisable afterwards which affected her career.
She has recently had a career resurgence after winning the 2010 series ‘Dancing With The Stars’ with professional dancer Derek Hough.
She has since guest-judged on the British version ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
In 1987 Jennifer was with her then-boyfriend Matthew Broderick when his car collided with another in Northern Ireland, killing a mother and her daughter. Jennifer said she was greatly affected by the incident for a long-time afterwards.
She has been married to Clark Gregg since 2001, they have one daughter.

She dated David Duchovny for a long time before he married Téa Leonie.
Her real voice is not like Janice’s – it’s a regular female voice. When Janice was pregnant in ‘Friends’ Maggie really was pregnant. She has two daughters.
Larry was also the dog-pound man in ‘Annie’ and the landlord in ‘Pretty Woman’. He was close to getting the part of Kramer in ‘Seinfeld’ but it ended up going to Michael Richards. In an ‘Inception’ move Larry then played an actor cast as Kramer in a sitcom within the sitcom.

Paget Brewster – Kathy
She went on to star as Emily Prentiss n ‘Criminal Minds’ from 2006 – 2012. Her character was actually dropped as a cost-cutting measure at one point but she was brought back due to fans’ demands.
She is living with Steve Damstra, a close friend of her Criminal Minds co-star Matthew Gray-Gubler.
She has been married to Philip Charles McKenzie since 1992. This flattering pic was the most recent one I could find.
More recently he played ‘Dr Victor Bravenec’ on ‘Breaking Bad’. He does the voice-over on the Duff beer commercials in ‘The Simpsons’.
His first major role was alongside Sean Astin, Billy Zane, Matthew Modine and Harry Connick Jr in ‘Memphis Belle’ (there he is beside the dog).

The couple married in 2000, they have a son and a daughter. Both Christina and Ben are vegans. Ben also had a cameo in ‘Friends’ – as Rachel’s date who is only angry when Ross is with him on his own.
While unknown in the States at the time, Helen was a big name in the UK and Ireland due to her lead role in ‘Cold Feet’. Apparently Patsy Kensit was originally offered the role of Ross’ second wife ‘Emily’ but she turned it down.
Since ‘Friends’, Helen has done loads of theatre acting but also turns up on TV the odd time in dramas like ‘Kidnap and Ransom’ and comedies like ‘Dirk Gently’.
Her former co-star James Nesbitt recently said they’d love for Helen to come back for a ‘Cold Feet’ reunion, though it seems unlikely as her character Rachel died in the final episode.
He has three children with her partner David L Wallis. Apparently her first pregnancy and visa issues meant the character of Emily was written out earlier than the ‘Friends’ writers intended.
Her arrest for shoplifting in 2001 seemed to affect her career somewhat, and Winona later admitted struggling with nerves.
She returned to the big screen in films like ‘Mr Deeds’, ‘Black Swan’ and ‘Star Trek’ (in which she played Spock’s mum).
Winona was engaged to Johnny Depp in the early 90′s and also had relationships with Dave Pirner (from Soul Asylum) and Matt Damon.
Her actual hair colour is blonde, she just dyes it dark. Apparently she suffers from insomnia and sometimes stays up talking to fellow insomniac Al Pacino on the phone (I hope that’s true).

Joanna is an award winning musical performer who has appeared in loads of Broadway productions. She’s been in films like ‘Boogie Nights’, ‘Mr Holland’s Opus’ and ‘The Wedding Planner’. On TV she’s recently popped up in ‘The Good Wife’.
Well this is a coincidence, Joanna is now married to Chris Sarandon, who was previously married to Susan Sarandon (see above). Chris is great for trivia – he also played Prince Huperdinck in ‘The Princess Bride’ and voiced Jack in ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’.
He and Joanna have four children between them (all from previous marriages).
