Maggie Wheeler, who plays the iconic character in the US sitcom, was also in one of our favourite films ever. And fans are only just realising.

In The Parent Trap, Maggie played a camp counsellor, and she actually features quite a few times, including when Hallie sets up a series of traps in Annie's cabin.

As fans will remember, camp director Marva (played by Polly Holiday) announces she's doing a surprise inspection of the girls' cabins along with her daughter - also named Marva (and played by Maggie). Despite Hallie's best efforts, both counsellors get caught up in the prank, and end up covered in oil and feathers.

As a result, Hallie and Annie end up in the isolation cabin.

And although we've watched the movie a zillion times, we never made the connection. Fans are just as baffled, with one tweeting: "I was today years old when I realized the camp counselor in The Parent Trap is the same actress that plays Janice in Friends."

While another said: "Duuuude the camp counselor from The Parent Trap is also Janice from Friends. What the actual f***."

"Why am I just realizing that the woman who plays Janice on Friends is also the camp counselor in The Parent Trap," added another.

With The Parent Trap being released in 1998, Maggie actually played Marva Jr around the same time she was playing Chandler's iconic love interest in Friends - which ran from 1994 to 2006.

We just can't believe we never noticed this before?!
