Maggie Wheeler:Actress Appears on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ to Promote Friends Fest

The actress discussed her role on “Friends” as Janice on “The Morning.” Janice is known for her line “Oh my god!,” while dating Chandler. Friends Fest starts its tour in the UK on Aug. 24.

She has one of the most recognisable voices of all time, but Maggie Wheeler – AKA Janice from Friends – sounds 100% different to the TV character we know her for.

ALL TOGETHER: OOOHHHH MYYYYY GOOODDDDDDDD.

During an interview with ITV’s This Morning, the 55-year-old actress revealed how she came up with her memorable phrase and that distinctive laugh.
“It was just this progression – how Janice evolved, how the writers created the character for me. So the laugh happened organically in the first rehearsal, because I needed to find a way to laugh, because Matthew Perry is so funny,” she admitted.
She added that the laugh was a result of her finding Perry so funny and couldn’t control the giggles.

“And working with him, I knew right away, I thought, ‘This guy’s gonna make me laugh on set, I’ve gotta be prepared. What am I going to do?’ So I created Janice’s laugh just as a safety measure for when Matthew made me laugh.”

Her role wasn’t supposed to have the run that it did, but Maggie was thrilled: “It was always a surprise that she continued to have a life on the show. I was always so thrilled every time the writers decided to bring me back,” she said. “It started out as a one-shot deal – come in, do one episode – and out of that came 10 years of this extraordinary, joyful experience.”
