A Tribute to the Star from the 90’s – Matthew Perry

For a good ten years, Matthew Perry or more often known as Chandler Bing, brought laughter and tears to audiences all around the world through his beloved TV show “Friends.” Bing’s character was known for his quick wit and sarcastic one-liners mixed with a wholesome personality.


On speaking with several Friends fans around Oxford Street, many expressed their sympathies as they lost one of the most iconic actors of this time. One of the pedestrians mentioned the heartfelt proposal scene in the show “Friends” where Chandler proposed to Monica in their candlelit apartment, depicting Bing’s character development whilst resonating with most of his audiences.

The passing of a beloved actor like Matthew Perry has evoked a profound sense of nostalgia and loss. For many, watching “Friends” today brings forth a mix of emotions. It is a reminder of the joy and laughter Perry brought to all lives over the years and deep connection to him, almost as if he were an old friend.

“All we know is the character Chandler, and even that resonated with us so much. I wonder how it feels for people who knew him in real life, my heart really goes out to the rest of the friends cast as well,” expressed a fan.

Another pedestrian sentimentally said: “The show is very lighthearted and Chandler’s humour adds a lot to it. I used to watch that show as a kid, and now he’s fucking dead. It’s coming for us all I guess.”

Matthew Perry’s legacy as Chandler Bing endures in the hearts of “Friends” fans. His remarkable performance and the show itself continue to bring joy and comfort to all ages. Each episode watched now is a reminder that he’s no longer with us, yet a tiny part of him still holds onto everyone who cherishes his work.
