Matthew Perry was always a friend too. That was the feeling among fans of the American actor, known for his iconic role as Chandler Bing in the comedy “Friends,” when they gathered this Sunday in front of the New York apartment building used in the filming of the hit series.
The 54-year-old actor was found dead on Saturday, and his death testifies to the staying power of “Friends,” a series that aired between 1994 and 2004 and continues to live on for all generations on broadcasts and streaming services.
And part of that would be due to Perry’s Chandler character, himself a sarcastic twentysomething who long resisted growing up. “He has played a very important role in the lives of the fans and has always made them laugh a lot.
On the corner of Bedford St and Grove St stands this mythical New York scene. Although the series was filmed in a studio, this was the building shown in the exterior shots of Monica, Rachel, Joey and Chandler’s home.
The emblematic corner of the fashionable neighborhood of West Village, New York, will these days be a tourist attraction for many visitors. The six-story building is located there, adorned in classic New York style with a brick facade and metal fire escapes.
West Village, in the early and mid-20th century, became synonymous with the avant-garde and artistic freedom. Its streets were inhabited by writers, actors, intellectuals and bohemians who placed the neighborhood at the heart of several progressive movements.
Time has transformed it, today it is one of the most select neighborhoods in Manhattan. Its picturesque streets, million-dollar houses and shops make it a unique place in New York.
Although the series Friends was recorded at the Warner Bros. studio, located in Los Angeles, the exteriors of Monica’s (Courteney Cox) and Rachel Green’s (Jennifer Aniston) apartment were taken on Bedford and Grove streets. “He’s a comedy hero for me. “It’s really quite surreal to be able to come and pay our respects,” said a British father who was vacationing in New York with his family at the time of Perry’s death.
The tragic event that shocked his loved ones and his millions of fans occurred in Perry’s house in California. The authorities in charge reported that they found his inert body in the hot tub. At that time they stressed that no evidence of illegal or suspicious substances had been found.
This Sunday, Marta Kauffman and David Crane, co-creators of “Friends”, and Kevin Bright, executive producer, issued a statement to CNN in which they said they were “shocked and very, very saddened by the passing of our dear friend Matthew.”
“It still seems impossible to us. All we can say is that we feel blessed to have had him as part of our lives,” the statement said. “He was a brilliant talent. It’s a cliché to say that an actor makes a role his own, but in Matthew’s case there are no truer words. From the first day we heard him play the role of Chandler Bing, there was no one else for us “.
The statement added: “We will always appreciate the joy, the light, the blinding intelligence that he brought to every moment, not only in his work, but in life. He was always the funniest person in the room. More than that, he was the sweeter, with a generous and selfless heart… This is truly ‘The One Where Our Hearts Are Broken.'”
Morgan Fairchild, who played Chandler Bing’s mother on “Friends,” paid tribute to Perry on Monday.
During an appearance on “CNN This Morning,” Fairchild shared memories of her first day on the set of “Friends” after landing the role of Nora Bing, the mother of Perry’s character.
“When I started working on the series, it wasn’t a big hit yet,” he recalls. “He bounded up to me, literally like a puppy, and said, ‘Oh, you don’t remember me. I used to visit you on the set of ‘Flamingo Road’ and ‘Falcon Crest’ with my dad.”
Her father was actor John Bennett Perry and Fairchild was surprised that the younger Perry was the boy she had seen on set.
This Monday, CNN reported that a broader investigation will be required by the Los Angeles Medical Examiner’s Office. “In the event that the cause of death cannot be determined at the time of the autopsy, a deferred certificate will be issued until additional studies have been completed,” its report states, according to authorities.
