In 1991 she made her television debut on the sitcom Molloy and went on to star in other shows such as The Edge, Herman’s Head, Ferris Bueller, The Wonder Years, and Friends (where she played Rachel Green). Her performance on Friends earned her an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series as well as two Golden Globe Awards for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy.
