With Friends like th­ese, the fun is cer­tain

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY SI­MON ROCKER

THE AMER­I­CAN TV star David Sch­wim­mer, best known for his role in the long-run­ning sit­com Friends, is set to ap­pear at a Lim­mud event next sum­mer.

He is billed to be one of the speak­ers at Cam­bridge Lim­mud in June.

Ju­lian Landy, who is co-chair­ing the one-day event with his wife Jo, ex­plained that the ac­tor’s ap­pear­ance was the re­sult of an out­ing the couple made ear­lier this year.

“We went to Charleston Farm House in Sus­sex, home of the Blooms­bury group,” he said. “On the guided tour we heard about one of the last mem­bers of

the group, Chat­tie Sala­man,”

She was a Hol­ly­wood ac­tress of Jewish de­scent. When they looked her up on Google, they found that her grand­daugh­ter was Zoe Buck man, a per­for­mance artist.

“I emailed her and asked if she would like to do a ses­sion,” Mr Landy said. “She emailed back and said she would love to come.”

Ms Buck­man is mar­ried to Mr Sch­wim­mer. “So, he is com­ing along and do­ing a ses­sion, too,” Mr Landy said.
