Actor Matthew Perry Dies at 54

October 30, 2023

The impact of his comedic genius was felt around the world, and his legacy will live on in the hearts of so many.

Warner Bros. Television Group on the death of Matthew Perry, widely known for his role as Chandler Bing on the popular show, “Friends,” which ran from 1994 to 2004. 

Authorities found Perry, 54, dead at his Los Angeles home on Saturday; reportedly, police responded to cardiac arrest and provided no indication of foul play or substance use. An investigation into his death remains ongoing. While clean since 2021, Perry chronicled his journey with substance use, addiction, and sobriety in a memoir released last year, saying, “The kind of message that I guess I give out with this book is don’t give up. There’s help out there.”
