There are series for which we keep a place in our hearts. Especially if they were produced in the ’90s and early ’00s. We’d all gather in front of the TV and watch our favorite characters’ adventures back then. And since they impressed us deeply, we remember them fondly. Maybe that’s why we always want to know more about the actors who appeared in those movies.

1. Courteney Cox inspired Carlton for his dance in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Actor Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton, confessed that the famous dance they performed in multiple episodes was inspired by none other than one of the main characters from Friends. Alfonso practically copied Courteney Cox’s moves in Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” music video.

The actor also added his own touch by copying Eddie Murphy’s moves in his monologue “White People Can’t Dance” and creating the perfect combination that would be remembered for years.

2. Rachel’s first boyfriend was originally going to play Ross.

It’s pretty hard to imagine other actors in any of the roles of the most famous group of friends on television. However, Mitchell Whitfield, who played Barry, the boyfriend Rachel jilted at the altar, was actually meant to play Ross’ character. The role was practically his until David Schwimmer decided to audition at the last minute and ended up being the chosen one. It was undoubtedly a missed opportunity for Mitchell, but we couldn’t imagine a better Ross Geller.
