Cast Of Friends: Where Are They Now?
If we are all being honest we know exactly where the cast of Friends is now because the show had such an impact on our lives, we could never let them go. Friends aired from 1994-2004 for the best ten seasons that any show on television has ever seen and due to its popularity many of its stars have remained well known, which is not always the fate for stars of popular TV series. While many have come close, no cast has had quite the same natural chemistry as the six main characters of Friends had, creating a show full of humor and emotion so real we couldn’t help but love it. The six stars were surrounded by a great supporting cast and now that it has been 11 years (yes really!) since the last episode aired take a look at where our favourite Friends are now.
James Michael Tyler (Gunther)
If Friends had an Unsung Hero Award it would most definitely go to the slightly creepy, somewhat adorable and a lot funny Gunther portrayed by James Michael Tyler, 58. Gunther appeared in 148 episodes of the show’s 236 when he had previously only had minor roles in lesser known projects and was actually only cast because he could actually run an espresso machine. He hadn’t acted a lot before and he hasn’t done much since but that’s okay because we will only ever think of him as Gunther anyway. James Michael Tyler has continued to be a supporter of Friends and its huge fanbase, opening a Central Perk replica in London for the show’s 15th anniversary and appeared in the BBC/Showtime sitcom Episodes.
Maggie Wheeler (Janice)
OH MY GAWD! Friends had a lot of guest stars come and go and while all of them were pretty great, there is no beating Chandler’s one time girlfriend Janice played by Maggie Wheeler, 53. Thanks to her memorable sound Wheeler has continued acting appearing several times in shows like Everybody Loves Raymond and Californication while also lending her voice to series like Archer. She has appeared in several single episodes of major television shows as well and remains married to her husband of 25 years Daniel Borden Wheeler with whom she shares two children.
