INSIDE THE REUNION!
The gang returned to a new replica set, built specially at Warner Bros. Studio in Hollywood rather than in New York, where it used to be. Original set designer Greg Grande shared behind-the-scenes pictures on Instagram of Monica Geller’s iconic purple apartment. But other than the different location, on-set insiders tell Closer the cast quickly returned to old habits upon reuniting, despite it being 16 years since cameras stopped rolling.
One revealed, “It was like no time had passed at all – with Matthew poking fun at David’s thick head of hair like he always did and the group all laughing and chatting together like they’d only seen each other last week.”
Courteney has previously revealed how Jen would make her and Lisa a special salad with turkey bacon and garbanzo beans, which the trio ate for lunch every day for the best part of ten years.
And the reunion insider says Jen upheld their lunch ritual. “Jen turned up with a huge Tupperware of the salad!”
And while the cast and crew have adhered to strict filming rules amid the pandemic, pals say Courteney’s fiancé, Johnny McDaid, 44, made a brief appearance to meet the gang.
The source adds, “Johnny has never met the guys, so he popped in to introduce himself, which was especially heartwarming for Courteney given how much she’s been longing to all be together.”
