Playing 'Friends' Baby Emma Is All Grown Up!

Noelle and Cali Sheldon were part of one of TV's biggest sitcoms, but they were too young to know it at the time.

The twins played baby Emma, the daughter of Friends couple Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) and Ross (David Schwimmer), in the show’s final two seasons.

"I grew up knowing that I was on Friends, but I didn’t realize the extent of it until I was probably 10," Noelle tells ET.

Despite their time starring alongside Aniston, the twins, now 12 years old, are normal seventh graders. They attend public school, play sports and instruments and do charity work, while still pursuing acting on the side. Both have had roles in short films and appeared in the 2007 pilot for the NBC drama Life.

"I want to keep being an actress because I think it's really fun to be a different person for a little bit," Cali tells ET. "But it's more of a hobby than a career path."

Cali and Noelle got the Friends job after their mom read on a twin parenting blog that many film and TV productions seek out twins for acting jobs due to the time restraints on young actors. They don’t remember their time on the show, but their parents tell them that all the stars of the hit NBC sitcom were "really nice."

"Our friends think it's really cool because they think we're famous," Noelle says. "I particularly don’t think we're famous or anything because we were babies so, people aren't going to say, 'Oh you’re baby Emma from Friends.' But they think it's really cool because they think we're famous."

While they’ve seen clips of themselves on Friends, the twins aren't allowed to watch the show until they’re older.

"My mom said that we can watch them when we're 13," Noelle says. "So probably a few days after I turn 13, I'm just going to go on Netflix. Twenty four-hour Friends marathon."
