Now, 26 years on from the show's premiere, here's everything we know about Matthew Perry's life outside of the spotlight.
His time on Friends and struggle with addiction.
Matthew Perry became a household name when he landed his breakout role in Friends in 1994. Before that, the up-and-coming actor played small roles in tv series Home Free and Sydney which were later cancelled.
"I desperately - desperately - needed the money," Perry said about the chance to read for Chandler Bing.
Perry ended up landing the role and was quickly catapulted into fame thanks to the show's long-running success. But behind the scenes, the actor struggled with alcohol problems.
"I was on Friends from age 24 to 34. I was in the white-hot flame of fame," he told People in 2013.
"The six of us were just everywhere all the time. From an outsider's perspective, it would seem like I had it all. It was actually a very lonely time for me because I was suffering from alcoholism."
