Rachel Karen Geller (née Green) is a fictional character on the popular U.S. television sitcom Friends (1994–2004). She is played by Jennifer Aniston, who received Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe for her performance.
Rachel Karen Green was born May 5, 1971 to Leonard and Sandra Green, who gave her and her two sisters Jill and Amy, a rather spoiled upbringing. She met Monica for the first time when they were both six years old and they quickly became best friends, remaining exactly that from then until attending the same high school, and later the same college. Rachel also soon met Monica's older brother Ross, who developed a crush on her which he ultimately decided to keep to himself. Eventually drifting apart from Monica and Ross, Rachel met and became engaged to an orthodontist named Barry Farber, another careless and unpleasant-natured individual who was unfaithful toward her, cheating on her with both her best friend Mindy and her selfish, shallow, unpleasant, self-absorbed sister Amy (although she didn't learn of this until after she eventually broke it off with him).
