Matthew Perry’s death: Friends, celebrities, and family pay tribute to the ‘great’ actor

The US actor, best known for his role as Chandler Bing in the classic ’90s sitcom Friends, was discovered dead at his Los Angeles home.

The makers of the show described him as a “brilliant talent” who was “always the funniest person in the room,” while his family claimed he “brought so much joy to the world.”

Perry has recently received plaudits for speaking candidly about mental health.

Friends, which followed the lives of six New York friends, aired from 1994 to 2004 and became a cultural touchstone of the time.

The 2004 finale drew almost 52 million people in the United States alone, making it the most watched TV episode of the decade.

According to Deadline, the show’s creators, Marta Kauffman and David Crane, as well as executive producer Kevin Bright, Perry’s death “still seems impossible.”

“We will always cherish the joy, the light, the blinding intelligence he brought to every moment – not just to his work, but in life,” they said in a joint statement.

“He was always the most amusing person in the room.” He was also the sweetest, with a loving and altruistic heart.”

They ended their tribute by referring to the format utilized for Friends episode titles: “This truly is The One Where Our Hearts Are Broken.”

His family claimed in a statement to People magazine that they were “heartbroken,” adding, “Matthew brought so much joy to the world, both as an actor and a friend.”

They went on to say that Perry’s fans “meant so much to him, and we appreciate the tremendous outpouring of love.”

Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that she and Perry had a “magical summer” together in 1993, during which they swam in creeks, drank beers, and “kissed in a field of long grass.”
