This week brought hit TV show Friends back into conversation, what with the fact that the little kid who played Ross and Rachel’s baby, Emma (who was actually played by a set of twins), is now all growd up. People age, who knew?
The twins, Noelle and Cali Sheldon, are now 12 years of age and well aware of the enormity of the show they were part of. The envy of their fellow school kids, the pair say they have no memory whatsoever of being on the show (in fairness, they hadn’t yet learned how to speak) but they did have some behind the scenes snaps to share.
“A lot of people in our school watch it, and most of them know we were in it, so they think that’s pretty cool,” Noelle said to Bustle. “I don’t remember anything about being on the show, but I’ve seen the pictures”
“She’s so famous, and I’m just a regular person, so it’s really cool,” says Noelle. Their mom, Gretchen says: “Everyone was really, really nice to Noelle and Cali, and treated them like little princesses on the set. [Friends] filmed before a live audience, and Cali and Noelle would come out, and they would be waving and engaging with the live audience. It was a lot of fun.”
Though the kids won’t remember much, the parents had a pretty sweet time: “My husband and I got to go to the Friends cast parties, which was pretty cool.” Gretchen, unfortunately, refuses to share some of the juicy gossip from what went down at those famous parties.
