Sometimes it happens that a supporting actor or guest star makes a show even more memorable. For instance, Friends saw many brilliant guest stars who added to the show’s fun and exciting experience. Some even lended to the making of  Hollywood’s once-hot couple on the show together. There was one more actor who received a lot of love from the viewers but did not have a pleasant experience behind the camera.

Stars like Robin Williams, George Clooney, Bruce Willis, Julia Roberts, and many others made the show even more memorable. One guest star, who appeared in more than one episode of the iconic sitcom, once shared her bizarre experience of working with the cast.

The ’90s sitcom not only gave the 6 lead actors fame, but it also gave them the friendship of a lifetime. The show brought these actors so close that they became inseparable, so much so that the other actors feel left out. A guest star, Kathleen Turner, had such an experience. Turner, during her interview with Vulture in 2018, opened up about how she felt unwelcomed by the cast of the show. Remembering those days, she shared an incident when she wore a heavy gown and high heels. Having a difficult time in the costume, Turner was shocked to see, “none of the actors thought to offer me a seat.

Finally, one of the crew members arranged a chair for the 69-year-old actress. Talking about her bizarre experience, Turner also revealed it was not a unique experience for her. The reason was these actors were a clique and those outside their group did not matter, according to the Academy Award-winning actress.
