Lisa Kudrow was shocked to discover all of her original Friends co-stars had signed up for a revival of the hit TV series without her only to realise she had fallen victim to an online prank. Kudrow played ditsy Phoebe Buffay in the U.S. show for 10 seasons until the sitcom came to an end in 2004, and earlier this year (13) she was surprised to spot an online report which suggested five out of the six stars had agreed to reunite. The actress admits she was baffled by the story as she hadn't been approached by bosses of U.S. network NBC for the 10-year reunion, rumoured to air in 2014. Speaking to U.S. chat show host Conan O'Brien, she says, "Okay, first of all. The graphic for this one thing (prank story) was unbelievable. It looked really real. And then they were posting this article and the headline was like, 'NBC Confirms 5 out of 6 of the Friends Are In,' and I went, 'Oh my God. They didn't ask me.'" Kudrow recently shared her regrets that the cast hadn't fought harder for more seasons of the show when it ended in 2004. The actors have all previously denied any plans to revive the popular show.
