Lisa Kudrow, who played Phoebe Buffay across all 236 episodes of Friends, has spoken about the show in an interview with The Times. Although obstensibly promoting her role in Space Force, Netflix’s upcoming sitcom from Greg Daniels (The Office), Kudrow talks a lot about her star-making TV role.
While Kudrow clearly loves the show, telling The Times “I don’t see a reality where Friends was anything but good,” she also acknowledges that a version of Friends made in 2020 would have to change some things–especially its all-white cast.
“Oh, it’d be completely different,” Kudrow says, reflecting on what a modern version would have to change. Kudrow agrees. “It would not be an all-white cast, for sure.”
