Ricardo Simonetti: My administration was contacted over a year ago while I was on vacation at Lake Garda. It looks like the producers who were planning to meet knew I was a huge fan of the show. I was in London a while ago and toured the “Friends” group and I think that’s how they came across. At first I couldn’t believe it, the request seemed so surreal. But then we started planning to shoot in Berlin.
What are your reactions to your performance?
I haven’t been allowed to say anything for over a year, but when I opened my cell phone on the day it aired, I was pelted by a torrent of pictures. a With news from all over the world. My fans were so happy to see me between Lady Gaga & Co and they sent me countless videos of emotional reactions because they like the program themselves.

What happened in China is a good example of the systematic crackdown on gay people. I would have been very happy to tell the Chinese community about our society in a surefire way, which also makes sense out there. This kind of censorship makes me very sad – because it’s so obvious remindHow important is maintaining education and visibility.

I experienced all the feelings from beginning to end – from tears of joy to sad moments. I didn’t lose anything at all, I thought it was cool. You noticed how well the actors got along with each other and you still know where the characters will be today. Compared to many of the other new releases, “Friends” has succeeded in maintaining its legend while still giving the audience a great deal of nostalgia.

What is your favorite character and the episode?
I love episodes in which the characters live alternate lives and ask themselves “what if”. I love all the characters, especially Rachel. I was always able to get to know her more. When I was a little kid, I always wanted to marry her.
The stars agreed on how to see it:they were that they On a break?
Phew, you can argue about that. Yes, they were on hiatus, but anyway, in my opinion, Ross could have waited before meeting other women. In the end that was enough anyway, luckily!
