How old is Rachel Greene? : LUSENET : ER Discussions : One Thread

How old id Rachel Greene? I was just wondering.

According to "Such Sweet Sorrow", Rachel is 12 years old, but in "Great Expectations" which was only 6 months before SSS, she was 10 years old. I guess TPTB skipped a few years.

Tell me, did Rachel's personality seem to have improved by "Such Sweet Sorrow?" I realize the character was young and going through rough times when she was on the show most frequently, but I still thought she was a bit of a brat.

Maybe she was suffering from PMS. :-)

Notice the coincidence: ER is on NBC, Friends is on NBC. Both shows have characters named Rachel Greene (or is Jen Aniston's character Rachel Green?)...sorry just felt like saying this

Rachel Greene just turned twelve years old on January 17. Her real name is Yvonne Zima.

-- Kim (, March 18, 2001.

She's 13 now. I believe in "Great Expectations" David was just being somewhat sarcastic (She's 10!!) I think she really was 11 (I mean he was just a few months off) and she would've turned twelve before SSS because her birthday was mentioned in season 1's "The Birthday Party," so she would've turned twelve right around "Under Control," and 13 around "Witch Hunt."

I don't exactly know what Rachel Greene looks like nowadays, the last episode I saw her in was "Great Expectations" which aired over here last summer or so and thats long long ago compared to how far episodes in the US already are... But what I wanted to ask - is she somehow related to Madeline Zima on "The Nanny"? I mean because of the last name...?

yvonne zima is the sister of both madeline and vanessa zima, who are also actresses. also, according to the proper, continuous "er" timeline, rachel greene might be 12 years old, but nbc media village keeps referring to her as "dr. greene's teenaged daughter." therefore, they must think she's at least 13. the actress playing her now is hallee hirsh, who is probably best known for guest roles on episodes of "law and order" and "malcolm in the middle." i guess yvonne zima couldn't commit to so many episodes in one year/at one time. it's pretty much a given that we won't be seeing her next year if there is no mark, but since rachel is now living with mark and elizabeth, she'll be in most of the episodes.

see, thats why I hate being an ER fan in Germany - I didn't know Rachel was living with Elizabeth and Mark now. In German TV Mark just got to know about his tumor and he hasn't told Elizabeth yet. For luck there's the internet!
