As the news of actor Matthew Perry’s demise emerged, his co-stars who worked with him over the years, shared tributes for the ‘Friends’ star.

Perry’s 10 seasons on Friends made him one of Hollywood’s most recognizable actors, starring opposite Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer as a friend group in New York.

Warner Bros. Television Group, which had produced Friends said in a statement: “Matthew was an incredibly gifted actor and an indelible part of the Warner Bros. Television Group family. The impact of his comedic genius was felt around the world, and his legacy will live on in the hearts of so many. This is a heartbreaking day, and we send our love to his family, his loved ones, and all of his devoted fans.”

As Chandler, he played the quick-witted, insecure and neurotic roommate of LeBlanc’s Joey and a close friend of Schwimmer’s Ross. During the show’s hijinks, he could be counted on to chime in with a line like “Could this BE any more awkward?” or another well-timed quip.

Perry received a Primetime Emmy nomination in 2002 for his performance in the sitcom. The official X account for Friends also wrote a heartfelt message.

Paget Brewster, who had a recurring role in the fourth season of Friends took to X (formerly, Twitter) to described her time acting alongside Perry. “He was lovely to me on Friends and every time I saw him in the decades after,” she said.

Actor Selma Blair, on Instagram, sharing a picture with the late actor said she was broken hearted after hearing of Perry’s demise.

“Oh no!!! Matthew Perry!! You sweet, troubled soul!!” wrote Mira Sorvino, who starred with Perry in the 1994 television movie Parallel Lives.

“May you find peace and happiness in Heaven, making everyone laugh with your singular wit!!!”

Josh Charles, who appeared with Perry on The Good Wife, wrote: “Awful news. RIP brother.”

“I feel so very blessed by every creative moment we shared,” said actor Maggie Wheeler, who played Janice Goralnik on Friends.

Actor Olivia Munn, on Instagram Stories, recalled Perry’s struggles with drug and alcohol addiction.
