It's hard to imagine Jennifer Aniston before Friends. It's hard to imagine any of the six main cast before Friends, but believe it or not they were all trying to make it as actors in various roles before finding fame at Central Perk.
Pre-1994, when Friends aired, Courtney Cox was by far the most famous of the six main cast members, with recurring roles in a few sitcoms including Family Ties and a guest appearance on Seinfeld. Our Jen had won roles in a few sitcoms too, but a lot of them were cancelled.
One of those shows was a sitcom called Molloy, which followed 11-year old Molloy Martin who's forced to leave New York for LA to live with her father, and his new wife and family after her mother dies. Molloy is played by The Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik, and starring alongside her as her step-sister Courtney Walker is Jennifer Aniston. Recently, footage of Jen in the show (which never actually made it to air) has been doing the rounds on Twitter, and it is pretty vintage.
One account unearthed this clip (second in the thread) from the show, which shows Jennifer rocking a bit of a dodgy side-ponytail.

Another account found the promo for the upcoming show, with Jennifer in the background.
That's funny. I totally remember the show BLOSSOM, but I've never even heard of MOLLOY, starring Mayim Bialik.— Isaac's Haunted Beard (@IsaacsHauntedB) January 23, 2020
...and is that Jennifer Aniston I see in the back, there? pic.twitter.com/PQRmExZtLP
And here's a classic throwback pic of Jennifer and Mayim (tweeted by Mayim herself a few years ago) on set together. Great brows going on here.
We do love a good throwback.
