David Schwimmer has paid tribute to Matthew Perry after his Friends co-star tragically passed away last month.

Perry tragically lost his life on 28 October at the age of 54 after being found dead in a hot tub in his home.

The actor achieved global fame with his role of Chandler Bing in Friends, endearing himself to millions with sarcastic jokes and witty quips.

Perry became a huge part of pop culture from the 1990s onwards, with the sitcom's enduring popularity showing no sign of stopping three decades on from when it originally aired.

He'd been very open about his lifelong struggle with addiction to alcohol and opioids, most prominently in his memoir, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing: A Memoir, which released last year.

The difficulties he faced led to multiple stints in rehab and serious health issues. While promoting his book, he did a series of interviews where he bravely opened up about his struggles, becoming emotional at times as he went into candid detail.

Since his tragic passing, many of Perry's co-stars have taken to social media to remember Perry, including Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc and Courteney Cox.

Now, Schwimmer has followed many of his other Friends co-stars in paying his respects.

Taking to Instagram, he penned: "Matty, Thank you for ten incredible years of laughter and creativity.

"I will never forget your impeccable comic timing and delivery. You could take a straight line of dialogue and bend it to your will, resulting in something so entirely original and unexpectedly funny it still astonishes.

"And you had heart. Which you were generous with, and shared with us, so we could create a family out of six strangers.

"This photo is from one of my favorite moments with you. Now it makes me smile and grieve at the same time.

"I imagine you up there, somewhere, in the same white suit, hands in your pockets, looking around—

"'Could there BE any more clouds?'"

Meanwhile, Aniston wrote: "In a post on Instagram today (November 15), Aniston began: "Oh boy this one has cut deep..."

She continued: "Having to say goodbye to our Matty has been an insane wave of emotions that I’ve never experienced before. We all experience loss at some point in our lives. Loss of life or loss of love. Being able to really SIT in this grief allows you to feel the moments of joy and gratitude for having loved someone that deep. And we loved him deeply."
