Among the mourners were Perry’s Friends castmates, who released a joint statement after news of his death broke.

“We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just cast mates. We are a family,” the cast said in a joint statement. “There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss. In time we will say more, as and when we are able. For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world.”

Through his iconic role of Chandler Bing, Perry brought joy to millions of people worldwide. Sadly, although he made many laugh, he wasn’t able to help himself in his years-long struggle with addiction.

In his memoir Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, which he released last year, Perry spoke openly about his years-long fight with addiction.

Perry was found unresponsive in the hot tub in his LA home. When Perry’s assistant, whom he refereed to as Erin in his memoir, returned home after running errands found the actor’s head underwater, Captain Erik Scott of the LAFD reported.

“Los Angeles City Firefighters responded [and] found an adult male unconscious in a stand-alone hot tub. A bystander had brought the man’s head above the water and gotten him to the edge, then firefighters removed him from the water upon their arrival,” Captain Scott said.

“A rapid medical assessment sadly revealed the man was deceased prior to first responder arrival. The circumstances are under investigation by LAPD and the LA County Medical Examiner. We mourn with families and friends who lose a loved one unexpectedly,” he continued.

It was reported that prior to his passing, Perry played a game of pickleball, a game he was a huge fan of.

He was indeed someone who fought hard to break off his habits and to stay sober, for which he had spent over $7 million over the years, but that wasn’t always easy. In fact, Perry used his personal experience to help others who were in the same position as he was.

On Friday, the Los Angeles county medical examiner provided details related to Perry’s cause of death, saying the actor died of “acute effects of ketamine” while contributing factors included “drowning, coronary artery disease and the effects of buprenorphine” – which is used to treat opioid use disorder.

His death was ruled accidental.

Close friends of Perry have stated that the actor was clean and sober prior to his death, while Perry himself had showed a clear willingness to turn his life around in recent years.

I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we’re going to miss Matthew Perry enormously. Thanks for all the memories!
