Phoebe Was Supposed To Have Ended Up With Someone Else In Friends
Time for a plot twist as Hank Azaria chats about what he wanted for David.
Phoebe and Mike's relationship was one of the strongest by the end of Friends, but it turns out they weren't always going to end up living quite so happily ever after.
Remember David, who went to Minsk and lost a toe to frost bite?
Well Hank Azaria, who played the man himself, has revealed that things were supposed to end a little differently for the two of them.
Yep, it's time for a plot twist.
You see, their relationship came to an end when David went off to do some scientific research, only to come back and find Phoebe in love with Mike.
"The plan always was kind of to bring [David] back," Hank said in a recent interview with The Huffington Post. "I think, honestly, what happened was Paul Rudd is so awesome that they sort of found a groove with him and [my character] became more of just the grist for that mill. As opposed to the other way around."
In fact, he couldn't help but be a tad disappointed for him.
"It actually did sting a little bit," he said. "Whatever part of me is David the science guy who went to Minsk, which admittedly is probably a small part of me [laughs], but that part of me wanted to end up with Phoebe. So I was sort of sad when I didn't."
"He certainly has gone on to prove that he was comedically deserving of Phoebe's love."
Brb just off to Minsk.
