'Friends': What Happened To "Joey's" Agent "Estelle"?
The fantastic June Gable played "Joey's" agent "Estelle Leonard" on Friends, from 1994 to 2003, when her character dies. Do you know what the American has been up to?
You probably remember that "Joey" (Matt LeBlanc) had an amazing agent on Friends and her name was "Estelle Leonard." Portrayed by the wonderful June Gable, "Estelle" was loved by everyone who ever watched the show!
Let's go back to 1994: June Gable's character appeared on Friends for the first time in "The One With The Butt," the sixth episode of the series' first season. However, her scene was cut for timing reasons and she made her actual first appearance one season later, in "The One With Russ" episode.
Unfortunately "Estelle" dies in the show's last season (2003) and our beloved "Joey" is the one in charge of delivering a speech at her memorial service. As expected, the scene is quite hilarious since fans get to learn she only had another client named "Al Zeebooker" (E.J. Callahan), who happens to eat paper (?)
