Other “Friends” colleagues, such as producers Marta Kauffman, David Crane and Kevin Bright, also commented, as “People” reports: “We are shocked and deeply saddened by the death of our beloved friend Matthew. It still seems impossible. All we can say is that we feel blessed to have had him as a part of our lives. From the day we first heard him portray the role of Chandler Bing, there was no one else for us .” He was always the “funniest person in the room.”
The ’90s hit series “Friends,” in which Perry played the role of Chandler Bing, revolved around the lives of six young friends in New York.
The TV series was produced in the USA from 1994 to 2004 and became a television cult in countless countries. For the special program “Friends: The Reunion” in 2021, all six main actors appeared together again in front of the camera.
