Not much has changed since the beginning of Debra Messing's days on Will & Grace. The actress, who rose to fame on the show, looked exactly the same as she does now in a throwback photo from the series that she shared on Instagram Tuesday.

In it, the 48-year-old actress playfully cuddles up with her costar Eric McCormack, 53, in a psychedelic dress with buttons down the middle, paired with large hoop earrings, and her hair parted to the side. As she touches his neck, he leans in for a kiss on the check, while rocking a sweater. "#TBT The screening of our pilot episode at a movie theatre in LA. 1998! @EricMcCormack," she captioned the collage, in which both of them flash smiles.

It's hard to believe that the duo shot the pilot for their hit comedy show 18 years ago. Both have gone on to have successful careers, with Messing most recently starring in The Mysteries of Laura, and McCormack even appearing alongside her in an episode of the NBC comedy.
