“What a loss. The world will miss you Mathew Perry. The joy you brought to so many in your too short lifetime will live on. I feel so very blessed by every creative moment we shared,” she said on Instagram.

Another of Perry's Friends co-stars, Morgan Fairchild - who played Chandler’s mother Nora Bing - voiced her sadness as well.

"I’m heartbroken about the untimely death of my ‘son’ … The loss of such a brilliant young actor is a shock," she wrote.

"I’m sending love & condolences to his friends & family, especially his dad, John Bennett Perry, who I worked with on Flamingo Road & Falcon Crest."

Paget Brewster, Chandler Bing's girlfriend Cathy, who famously caused a strain on his friendship with Joey Tribbiani (Matt Le Blanc) on the show, also wrote online: "I’m so very sad to hear about @MatthewPerry.
