While Matthew Perry starred in over 200 episodes of Friends, there was one in particular that he dubbed his favorite.

Perry shot to fame as Chandler Bing on the well-loved sitcom, which is still being watched in millions of homes today nearly 30 years on from its debut.

And many of Perry's previous interviews have been doing the rounds as of late in the wake of his ultimately passing in October.

Perry, 54, was found unconscious in a hot tub at his LA-home, and was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

The late actor has since been laid to rest, where all five of his Friends co-stars - Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc - were in attendance.

As people continue to keep Perry's memory alive, an interview from 2004 has resurfaced where he shared his favorite Friends episode.

Fans of the show may remember 'The One With The Black Out', where his character Chandler was stuck in a bank with Victoria's Secret model, Jill Goodacre, in season one.

“The interesting thing about that episode was I didn’t speak much; it was mostly in voiceover,” Perry told Entertainment Weekly in 2004.

“We prerecorded what I said, and I had to react.”

He also addressed working with Goodacre, and admitted that it wasn't hard.

"Let’s face it: Jill Goodacre is hot, so it wasn’t that difficult," Perry said at the time.

As he was stuck in the bank for the episode, Perry was then able to watch his co-stars film the rest of it.

He said: "What was great about that night was that I was also able to watch the other three quarters of the show, which was these five great actors doing ensemble work that was amazing."

It was then that Perry realized that the show was 'really clicking'.

Little did he know that it would go on to run for ten seasons, made up of 236 episodes.

The sitcom also received a host of awards while on air, including six Emmys.

Meanwhile, Perry won a Screen Actors Guild Award (SAG) in 1996 for his portrayal of Chandler, and had been nominated for dozens of others.

His other notable films and TV shows include 17 Again, The Whole Nine Yards, Fools Rush In, and Growing Pains.
