New details of the special issue of the series “Friends”, the work on which was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, continue to appear on the network. The other day, 53-year-old David Schwimmer, who played the romantic paleontologist Ross Geller in the cult sitcom, virtually visited the studio of The Tonight Show.
In a video link with host Jimmy Fallon, Schwimmer discussed his character and his rocky relationship with Jennifer Aniston’s Rachel Green, and revealed details of a special featuring all of the show’s key actors.
So, David answered the host’s question whether Ross and Rachel actually had the “hiatus” they talk about throughout the seasons of the sitcom. It’s about a situation that took place in an episode titled “The One Where Ross and Rachel Take A Break” in season three. Then Ross and Rachel had a big fight, after which she announced that they needed to take a break. Following the disgruntled hero Schwimmer went to a bar in the company of Joe and Chandler, where he got drunk and slept with a girl named Chloe.
This topic becomes a key issue in Ross and Rachel’s relationship. The opinion of the fans on this matter is also ambiguous: some side with Ross, justifying him by the fact that at that moment they were on a break, while others, on the contrary, support Rachel.
People are so passionately at odds about whether Ross and Rachel’s relationship was on hiatus. It’s not even a question! Of course they had a break
– David dotted the i’s.
Schwimmer also said that fans of the series are so engrossed and amused at the same time by the topic of the relationship between Ross and Rachel that most often they shout after him on the street the famous phrase of his character: “We had a break.”
David also revealed when the “Friends” special is scheduled to resume and revealed some details about the episode featuring Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry.
The special will be mostly improvisation. It will be a fun interview with many surprises for the audience. Filming should resume by mid-August. But honestly, we would like to wait a few more weeks for it to become really safe.
– said Schwimmer.
Recall that the first episode of Friends aired on NBC in 1994. The sitcom has been broadcast for 10 years, and during this time it has gained millions of fans around the world who are now eagerly awaiting the release of the new episode.
