‘Friends’ Actor Matthew Perry Dies At 54

Matthew Perry, the troubled actor of the smash hit TV sitcom “Friends,” was found dead at his Los Angeles home on Saturday, according to US media. He was 54.

According to law enforcement officials, first responders discovered Perry unresponsive in a hot tub at his home and were unable to revive him.

“We responded at 4:10 pm… It is a death investigation for a male in his 50s,” a Los Angeles Police Department spokesman told AFP, without confirming the deceased’s name.

A fire department spokesman confirmed it had responded to a “water emergency,” which could refer to a “pool, spa, bathtub or fountain,” but could not confirm reports that Perry had drowned.

American broadcaster NBC, which aired “Friends” for nearly a decade, confirmed the death.

“We are incredibly saddened by the too soon passing of Matthew Perry,” said NBC said in a post on social media platform X, formerly Twitter.

“He brought so much joy to hundreds of millions of people around the world with his pitch perfect comedic timing and wry wit. His legacy will live on through countless generations,” it said.

Perry was best known for his portrayal of the wise-cracking Chandler Bing on the wildly popular “Friends,” which ran for 10 seasons from 1994 to 2004.

“Friends” followed the lives of six New Yorkers navigating adult life, dating and careers. It was a mainstay of NBC’s much-vaunted 1990s and early 2000s television lineup, and drew a massive global following.
