The actor played Ross Geller in the hit sitcom that ran from 1994 to 2004 and focused on six close friends living in New York.

In an interview with The Financial Times newspaper, he said: ‘The creators of the show are of the same opinion as we are, that they loved the way it ended.

“The whole show was about a time in those characters’ lives when your friends were your family. At our age, a lot of people have their own families, so there’s really no interest in trying [recreate] Which.’
