The Original Character Descriptions For Friends Show How Far They All Came
"All are in their twenties. All trying to figure it out."
This is the quality of literature that we should be forcing our GCSE students to analyse. This is the kind of powerful line that Shakespeare could only dream of. This is an extract from the original character descriptions for the Friends cast.
Take a look.
The original descriptions are pretty spot on - obviously - but we couldn't notice how the characters have changed from their season one beginnings.
Sure Chandler stays "droll" and "dry" but where did the whole snacks part come from? They definitely moved that attribute over to Joey, who sounds a bit more misogynistic on paper than the man we came to know and love.
In fact, pretty much all the characters changed dramatically over ten seasons. Monica, a romantic disaster area? Hardly.
Rachel, spoiled? Nope. Terrified? Absolutely not.
Phoebe, sells barrettes on the streets... wait, what? That wasn't a thing. Thank god that wasn't a thing. (On the plus side, at least she kept the guitar-playing up. Check out our videos of all her songs, above).
In fact, the only person that didn't change was Ross. Which is no surprise, because Ross sucks. He's just about the only person that can take the description "suddenly divorced" and somehow make it accurate every day over the span of ten years.
Congrats, guys. On the people you were and the people you became.*
