I wonder what happened to Carol & Ben in Friends? They seemed to both vanish in the later series, especially after Rachel had her baby.

I think the actress playing her wasn't aware that the role would be recurring so often and wasn't happy playing her for that long and so left.

She may just have been recast, the producers may have thought of her as being unsuitable for the role.

In "Joey" the girl next-door to Joey was played by a different actress originally and they had to re-shoot all the scenes in the pilot with the first woman in. I think they just didn't think her acting was up to scratch.

She must have been really bad

Surely she must have been too good, nobody could act too badly for Joey.

Yeah, I saw that pilot and she was garbage. Completely bland. It was more about how dull and forgettable she was rather than being a bad actress.

I really like Andrea Anders though, she's lovely. And Matt Le Blanc obviously thought so too, much to the annoyance of his wife.

These were the "original" Friends credits, originally titled as "Friends Like Us" this is not made by me but they are real.

They can't be real, the Rembrandts song was recorded for the pilot (so why they would use a different song...), and at that point in time no other episodes were made, so they cant of had that in-episode footage on the titles.

Yeah, good point, I hadn't thought of that. The font looks a bit fake too.

The original titles were going to be JUST them larking about in the WB fountain I thought.

That's awful. You can hear Stipe starting to sing "Shi..." and there's a horrible edit. As if that would be real
