Santa Monica - A California jury has ordered Lisa Kudrow to pay her former manager $1.6 million in residuals from her work on ’Friends’.

The Los Angeles County Superior Court jury returned its verdict on Tuesday in a lawsuit filed by Scott Howard.

He claimed he had an oral agreement with the actress and was owed a percentage of her earnings on the hit NBC sitcom.

Kudrow contended that she had already paid Howard more than $11 million before they parted ways in 2007.

Kudrow's attorney, Gerald Sauer, says the verdict will be appealed.

City News Service says testimony during the trial indicated that Kudrow was earning more than $1 million per episode by the end of the show's run.

Kudrow starred on ‘Friends’ from 1994 to 2004. - Sapa-AP
