‘Friends’ Twins Who Played Baby Emma Are Now 13, Aiming For Own Success

Prepare to feel old, because the duo that played Emma, the daughter of Ross Geller and Rachel Green, in Friends have been uncovered on a Reddit thread as 13-year-old twins.

The pair started playing the role of Emma back in 2003 after Jennifer Aniston’s character gave birth to her in the seventh season finale of Friends, entitled “The One Where Rachel Has A Baby, Part 2.”

There’s clearly a passing resemblance to their on-screen mother from Friends. But that’s probably why the pair were cast in the roles to begin with.

But what have the pair been up to ever since Friends came to a conclusion back in 2004? Well the duo have appeared in Novel Romance, a feature-film that was released in 2006, where, rather ironically, they played another character named Emma.

Noelle then appeared in the short film Maxwell in 2013, while the twins then shared a duel credit for the 2012 short film, Agorable.

However, for now, they will always be associated with the role of Emma in Friends — which is hardly a surprise considering how much of a success the NBC comedy was during the mid-90s and early 00’s.

Emma was conceived after David Schwimmer’s Ross Gellar and Jennifer Aniston’s Rachel Green had a drunken tryst. The pair, who had been engaged in a “will-they, won’t-they” style courtship throughout Friends’ run, then struggled to define their relationship after the birth of their daughter.

That was until the final episodes of Friends, when Rachel decided to move to Paris, France, for a new job. However, she soon realized that she’d rather live in New York with Ross and the pair re-started their relationship once again.

This Reddit unveiling of the twins comes just a few days after it was revealed that Jennifer Aniston almost wasn’t cast as Rachel Green in Friends.

Aniston explained at the Santa Barbra film festival earlier this week that while filming the pilot for Friends, she had also committed to another show named Muddling Through. This led Friends‘ creators to consider re-casting the character of Rachel. In the end, though, they took the chance that Muddling Through would fail and Aniston would then be free to star as Rachel in Friends — which is exactly what transpired.
