She also recalled once taking an online quiz that claimed she was a friend and she didn’t get Phoebe humorously. Instead, the quiz informed her that she was indeed Rachel.
“I thought I was answering questions that would bring me to Phoebe – you know, ‘Favorite color? Yellow!'” She continued. “And it said Rachel.”
This led her to explain that the first time she read the script for the Friends pilot to audition for the show, she actually saw herself as better suited to playing the character that would ultimately come to life Jennifer Aniston.
“When I first read the script and wanted to audition for Phoebe, I saw [the pages for] Rachel and I just said, “Oh, this is like a Long Island JAP – that could be funny. I can identify with that more. ‘But they said,’ No, no. Phoebe, ”said the star.
Ultimately, Lisa got her first wish as the show continues to live on in the hearts of fans even if there are no new episodes in sight. Obviously, the star takes the words “I’ll be there for you” very seriously.
