Jane Sibbett, who played lesbian character Carol on Friends, has been reminiscing about her time on the show.

‘It was important to us, and the producers, that we showed a couple that was in love,’ she says in a new interview.

The star played Ross’s ex-wife Susan opposite Jessica Hecht as Susan.

‘But certain affiliates wouldn’t air the episode with our [Carol and Susan’s] wedding,’ the star furthermore added. ‘ They completely blocked it out.’

‘I didn’t get paid the million-dollar pay check’

Sibbett was speaking to The Guardian alongside an array of Friends guest stars remembering their time on the show.

She also said: ‘I’m quite content. Obviously, I didn’t get paid the million-dollar pay check, but I’ve had the best of Friends. I was able to raise my children and I got offered some really sweet projects.’

‘There was one joke we kept changing,’ she furthermore said. ‘It was the episode where Susan and I are celebrating our anniversary, and Ross comes over at an inopportune moment, and I had to telegraph to him that it isn’t a good time. So I removed a little pube from my tongue. That was the only time I pitched something that was really outrageous, and it actually got on air.’
