Matthew Perry, renowned for his role as Chandler Bing on the hit TV show ‘Friends’, has tragically passed away at the age of 54.

His death is believed to be the result of a drowning incident in a hot tub at his Los Angeles home. The news was confirmed by NBC, the network that aired Friends. Perry’s demise has led to an outpouring of grief from fellow celebrities and public figures. Notably, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was a schoolmate of Perry’s in Ottawa, expressed his shock and sadness over the loss.

Perry’s role in Friends catapulted him to international stardom, and the show remains one of the most beloved sitcoms. Despite his professional success, Perry had struggled with addiction, which he candidly discussed in his 2022 memoir. His passing marks a significant loss in the world of entertainment.

Difficult words: demise (a person’s death), catapult (to move suddenly or at great speed), candidly (frankly).
