We show below how was the emotional meeting of the actors of The Big Bang Theory and Friends; check out.
Kaley Cuoco Is A Big Fan Of Friends Star
Many fans of The Big Bang Theory do not know, but Kaley Cuoco, the interpreter of Penny, is a great admirer of Jennifer Aniston, Rachel from Friends.
In several interviews, the actress stated that Aniston is an “example to be followed”. Cuoco was also thrilled to meet the idol for the first time.
One of the first works of Kaley Cuoco’s career in cinemas was Passion of Occasion, a romantic comedy released in 1997 – and starring Jennifer Aniston.
In the film, the eternal Penny from The Big Bang Theory is credited only as “little girl”. Even so, Kaley Cuoco still remembers the expectation to play opposite Jennifer Aniston.
“My name was in the last credits… When I watched the movie, I realized that they had cut my only line. I remember spending the entire day convincing myself to tell Jen how much I loved her. At that point, Friends was my obsession.”
How was the meeting of Friends and The Big Bang Theory?
As we mentioned earlier, Friends and The Big Bang Theory did not have the opportunity to produce a crossover.
After all, Friends came to an end 3 years before The Big Bang Theory premiered.
Even so, the casts of the two sitcoms met at the Must See TV event, a tribute to James Burrows, one of the most famous TV directors of all time.
Kaley Cuoco was shocked to meet Jennifer Aniston. The actress posted a photo of the moment on social media.
“My night is complete! I can barely breathe! Did I die and go to Paradise?”, joked the actress.
Johnny Galecki, Leonard’s interpreter, also shared a record of the event. According to the photo, actors Kunal Nayyar (Raj’s interpreter in The Big Bang Theory) and Matthew Perry (Friends’ Chandler) did not attend the party.
