Lisa Kudrow will always be known to Friends fans as her alter-ego, Phoebe Buffay, with her trademark long, blonde hair. But the actress didn't always look like this. To mark Father's Day, Lisa shared an incredible throwback photo of herself standing in the middle of her mum and dad at their family home, where she was sporting wavy, brunette hair. The picture was taken when Lisa was a teenager, and fans were quick to comment on it after Lisa uploaded it on Instagram. "I would have sworn you were a natural blonde," one surprised follower wrote, while another said: "You're a brunette!" A third added: "Wait, you're not blonde?"

Lisa has also been vocal about the possibility, admitting that she was game if it was organised. Talking to Extra TV, she said: "Courteney and Jennifer are good planners. I'm that annoying person that's like 'Hey do either one of you want to put that together?' My role is like, here's an idea and have someone do it." Other stars of the show were Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer.
