‘I just remember how incredibly sweet the cast was. In between takes I remember sitting on that iconic couch sitting in between Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston just chatting it up,’ Mowry said.  

‘Of course, I had the biggest crush on Courteney Cox. And I’m like, “Man, I’m really out here. I’m really sitting next to Courteney right now,”‘ he added.

‘Those are very amazing memories. And just how iconic that entire coffee shop was. It’s pretty cool to think back on it all,’ Mowry said.

He was seen in the Central Perk coffee shop where he’s seen rushing in and asking if Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) is there, calling her, ‘the singing lady who tells the truth.

Once he sees her inside, he goes to tell his friends to come inside the coffee shop to see her perform.

‘I do actually remember that it took a while because the way they shot that — it was obviously multicam, but some multi-camera shows tend to sometimes shoot in a single camera way,’ Mowry continued.

‘It kind of takes longer than it would like your classic multi-camera sitcom,’ Mowry added.

‘You never push it in for a tighter shot. So you’re never behind walls or anything like that,’ Mowry continued.

He also described how they filmed Friends as a, ‘different filming experience than how Full House or Smart Guy was,’ adding, ‘it was a little bit more meticulous.’ 

Several years after that Friends episode, he would work with that episode’s director, Michael Lembeck  on Baby Daddy.

‘Full circle. He always jokes with me and says I helped him to win an Emmy for that. I’m like, “Hey, I do what I can!”‘ Mowry said.

The revelation comes just weeks after the main Friends cast, including Cox, reunited during HBO Max’s Friends special.
