Le Blanc daunted by 'Joey'
09:30 04 April 2005
Matt LeBlanc has revealed he found it "daunting" when he first started filming 'Joey'.
The handsome actor, who reprised his role as the struggling actor in the 'Friends' spin-off, says he was shocked at how much work he had to do because in the past it has always been shared between six stars.
He told Britain's Reveal magazine: "Making 'Joey' was a lot harder than 'Friends' was. If you read the script from cover to cover, every other line is Joey's.
"When we started out, it was tricky emotionally for me. I was sad to be standing on the same set with the same crew, without my 'Friends' co-stars.
"It was also daunting to be up there on my own. 'Friends' was a true ensemble, in which six of us shared centre stage. But here I'm pretty much carrying the show. Halfway through the pilot episode, I started to feel like: 'Wow, this is a lot of words to remember!'"
