Los Angeles Police Department spokesman told AFP the case is being investigated as a death investigation involving a male in his 50s.

According to a fire department spokesperson, they responded to a “water emergency,” which may have been a “pool, spa, bathtub or fountain,” but they could not confirm Perry’s death.

During the run of “Friends” from 1994 to 2004, Perry played the wisecracking Chandler Bing.

A New York family navigates adulthood, dating, and careers in “Friends.” As one of the most popular series of the 1990s and early 2000s, “Friends” captivated millions around the world.

A painkiller and alcohol addiction plagued Perry during his peak success, and he attended multiple rehabilitation clinics.

Due to his drug use in 2018, Perry suffered a burst colon, which required multiple surgeries and the use of a colostomy bag for months.

He spent millions of dollars in repeated attempts to get sober in his memoir “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing,” published last year.

In the prologue, Perry writes: “I should be dead.” Dedicated to “all sufferers out there,” Perry wrote: “I should be dead.”

In his letter, he said, “I’ve mostly been sober since 2001, save for sixty or seventy little mishaps along the way.”

There were no drugs found at the scene, according to TMZ, which broke the news first. An assistant of Perry found Perry and called 911, according to a celebrity news outlet.

According to anonymous sources cited by the LA Times and TMZ, there were no indications of “foul play”.

After Perry’s death was announced, Hollywood’s social media community reacted.

The 1994 television movie “Parallel Lives” starred Perry and Mira Sorvino. They wrote, “Oh no!!! Matthew Perry!! You sweet, troubled soul!!”

Your singular wit will make everyone laugh in Heaven. May you find peace and happiness in Heaven.”

The Good Wife actor Josh Charles wrote: “Awful news. RIP.”

The Warner Brothers TV network, which produced “Friends,” tweeted: “We are devastated to hear of Matthew Perry’s passing. He was a true gift to us all.”.

All of his fans and family are in our thoughts and prayers.

His parents separated when Perry was born in Massachusetts in 1969. He grew up between Montreal and Los Angeles after his parents separated.

In addition to being a journalist, his mother also served as press secretary to Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. A US actor was his father.

Before moving permanently to California and pursuing acting, Perry was a national ranked tennis player in Canada as a teenager.

“Charles in Charge” and “Growing Pains” were among Perry’s guest roles in the 1980s.

His role as the youngest lead actor on “Friends” was the last one to be cast.

Among fans, Perry’s character quickly became known for his sarcasm, quick wit, and occasional awkwardness.

By the end of their colossally popular and zeitgeist-setting 236-episode run, Perry and his co-stars negotiated $1 million per episode.

They reportedly earned $2.5 million each for a reunion episode in 2021, a testament to the show’s enduring appeal.

It caused concern among fans when Perry slurred his words during that episode.

While filming the sitcom, Perry surprised his costars by revealing that he suffered from severe anxiety “every night.”

The “Friends” star also appeared in “The Whole Nine Yards” and “Fools Rush In.”

A guest appearance on “The West Wing” earned him two Emmy nominations, but he did not win.

There was no marriage for Perry.
