Mourning for “Friends” star Matthew Perry: Janice actress says goodbye

There is great sadness for Matthew Perry (1969-2023). The actor was found dead at his home in Pacific Palisades in Los Angeles on Saturday (October 28). On social media, numerous fans and colleagues say goodbye to Perry, who became famous as Chandler Bing in the sitcom “Friends” (1994 to 2004). Maggie Wheeler (62), who played his on-off girlfriend Janice in the series, also spoke up in an Instagram post.

"What a loss. The world will miss you, Mathew Perry," she wrote alongside a photo of the two from the NBC series. "The joy you brought to so many in your all-too-short life will live on. I feel so very blessed by every creative moment we shared." To this day, Janice is considered an absolute fan favorite in the series. Chandler breaks up with her early in the series, but his ex-girlfriend with the nasal voice, the loud laugh and the popular exclamation "Oh my God!" always appears as a surprise guest.

Television, which produced "Friends," wrote in a statement: "We are devastated to learn of the passing of Matthew Perry. He was a true gift to all of us. Our condolences go out to his family, loved ones and all his fans."

Morgan Fairchild, 73, who played Chandler's mother Nora, said in a statement on Condolences to his friends and family, especially his father, John Bennett Perry, with whom I worked on 'Flamingo Road' and 'Falcon Crest.'

Paget Brewster, 54, who played Joey and Chandler's girlfriend Kathy, also wrote on It was his legacy to help. But he won't rest in peace... He's already too busy making everyone up there laugh."
