The popular sitcom "Friends" star Matthew Perry, who played the witty yet tender Chandler Bing, passed away on Saturday from what appears to have been drowning.
Reportedly, the 54-year-old actor, who was nominated for an Emmy, was discovered dead in his bathtub. He portrayed a key role in 'Chandler Bing', as the witty, nervous and neurotic flatmate of Matt LeBlanc's Joey and Ross's close buddy played by David Schwimmer.
His interpretation of the role was so well-known that it won praise from admirers everywhere. Cricket player Dinesh Karthik expressed homage as soon as word of his passing spread via a moving post on X (previously Twitter).
The beloved television show "Friends," which ran from 1994 to 2004, has been captivating audiences ever since it debuted and has recently seen a resurgence in popularity, especially among younger viewers, thanks to streaming platforms.
The programme, which won one Emmy Award for Best Comedy Series in 2002, has continued to be a cultural phenomenon and is still regarded as a beloved classic due to its timeless appeal.
Notably, in subsequent seasons, the cast members banded together to bargain for an extraordinary $1 million an episode wage each. However, during his tenure on the show, actor Matthew Perry struggled with addiction and a strong desire to please viewers. His personal troubles were hidden by his popularity.
