Turner fuels Friends reunion talk
Friends cast
The Friends stars earned a reported $1m (564,000) per episode
Actress Kathleen Turner has fuelled rumours of a Friends reunion after telling reporters she has been asked to appear in the sit-com.

She said she had been approached about reprising her role as Chandler's transvestite father.

Warner Bros denied Courtney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer were to reunite for four one-off specials.

But Turner said it was "possible" she was going to reprise her role.

There is absolutely no truth in it - it's all rumour
Warner Bros spokeswoman

Turner, 51, who is in the UK to perform in the play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, added: "I haven't got any dates yet or anything."

Asked whether there would be four one-hour specials, she said: "I think so, I hope so. They said it might be happening. I've got no details about the story or anything.

"I like the character I play because it's a woman playing a man playing a woman. We haven't got any dates set as to when it will happen. That is all I know."

Earlier in the week a spokeswoman for Warner Bros insisted there were no plans for any new episodes.

"There is absolutely no truth in it - it's all rumour," she said.

"There is nothing planned of any kind."

In the UK, 8.6 million viewers tuned into Channel 4 for the last episode of Friends when it was shown in May 2004.

Le Blanc went on to star in spin-off series Joey, but the sitcom has not enjoyed the same success as Friends.
