We were more than just cast mates. We are a family. 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.
Matthew Perry was found dead on October 28 at his Los Angeles home in a jacuzzi (hot tub). No foul play was suspected in connection with the death. He breathed his last at the age of 54. The Los Angeles Fire Department in its statement explained that Perry’s assistant was the one who found him unconscious in a stand-alone hot tub and brought his head above the water to the edge. He called the firefighters who removed him from the water upon their arrival. However, upon rapid assessment, it was revealed that Perry had died before the first responders arrived.
