Matthew Perry, who played the role of Chandler Bing in the popular American sitcom, Friends, gets nightmares about the show’s reunion. “I have this recurring nightmare—I’m not kidding about this. When I’m asleep, I have this nightmare that we do ‘Friends’ again and nobody cares. We do a whole series, we come back, and nobody cares about it,” Variety.com quoted him as saying.
The 47-year-old, however, added that if ever the idea of a reunion comes up, he would say ‘No’. “If anybody asks me, I’m gonna say no. The thing is, we ended on such a high. We can’t beat it. Why would we go and do it again?” said Perry.
The actor is not the only one from the show’s star cast to dismiss a possible reunion for the show, which ran for 10 seasons from 1994-2004. Actor Jennifer Aniston, who played the role of Rachel Green, too, had a rather morbid revelation about Friends reunion.
“We were jokingly saying that if Friends was created today, you would have a coffee shop full of people that were just staring into iPhones. There would be no actual episodes or conversations,” she had said during a podcast.
Last month, show’s co-creator Marta Kauffman also ruled out a possible return of the show. “Nope! Never happening. I know, (rumours) happen all the time! Not happening. Not ever,” Usweekly.com quoted her as saying.
