What Friends star looks like now

The beloved sitcom, despite airing its final episode 18 years ago, was recently revealed to be the number one favourite show among young TV watchers.One of the main plots of the series revolved around the cast’s journey to find love – including Ross Geller’s (David Schwimmer) struggle to find the one given his lingering feelings for Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston).Among the long list of beautiful women he met was Emily, portrayed by British actress Helen Baxendale, who appeared as his girlfriend, wife and ex-wife.Ross’ doomed second wedding to Emily became one of the most gag-worthy moments in sitcom history.Emily was cemented as the scorned bride back in 1998 when Ross said the wrong name at the altar – calling her Rachel in front of everyone.It was a gut-punching moment and, naturally, marked the beginning of the end of Emily’s time on the show.Baxendale, now 51, has since appeared in a wide number of movies and TV shows, and she looks completely different these days.The mother-of-three is probably best known for her role as Rachel in Cold Feet from 1997 until 2003, alongside fellow star James Nesbitt.When the ITV favourite returned in 2016, the actress revealed that she had been approached to be in the new series, despite her character’s death.She told The Sun: “They’ve been so lovely and said, ‘Look, we really would want you in it’ – but I don’t know how they would do that.“They did come to me and ask and say, ‘How can we get her back in?’”In one of Baxendale’s longest roles from 2012 to 2019, she starred in BBC sitcom Cuckoo where she played Lorna, the mother-in-law of Dale ‘Cuckoo’ Ashbrick.Just last year, Baxendale also featured in a cast including rap star Stormzy, portraying a housekeeper in Noughts and Crosses.This story originally appeared on The Sun and was reproduced with permission
