Michele Weinberger (Romy and Michele's High School Reunion
(1997)), Phoebe Buffay (Friends
(1994)), Valerie Cherish (The Comeback
(2005)) and Fiona Wallice (Web Therapy
(2008)) are Lisa Kudrow
's most famous characters to date, and all of them have a lot in common. They all share a tragic past that has isolated them from the others, making them create and live in their own particular world, as a self defense sense, to avoid and surpass the suffering, causing the fake impression that they have a shallow or ignorant personality, when in fact, they are just in conflict with the ordinary social understanding of living. Although each one of them goes through very humiliating moments, they do not have a mean or disrespectful nature with the others (not even Fiona, whose personality is inclined to take advantage of the situations). They also share self-unawareness, but ironically they have overwhelming self esteem and confidence. All of the performances had been used in the past somehow, and she later brought each one back, to become the characters that people now know. Lisa has already stated on Kevin Pollack's Chat Show, that she likes to make humor with the "slice of life" kind of thing. Michael Patrick King defined, during their Writers Guild Foundation interview, that she first deconstructed a character from the inside out, to later build it all over again. Lisa also stated, that she doesn't like her characters to be mean, or to deliver degrading situations, because it's not her style, and the audience does not deserve that kind of disrespect. See more
