Rumer Willis, Bruce Willis’ daughter who appeared alongside Perry in The Whole Nine Yards, posted: “I’m so sad to hear about Matthew Perry passing.”
Paget Brewster, the Criminal Minds actress who played Kathy on six episodes of Friends, a woman whom Perry’s character Chandler Bing was in love with, wrote: “I’m so very sad to hear about @MatthewPerry. He was lovely to me on Friends and every time I saw him in the decades after. Please read his book. It was his legacy to help. He won’t rest in peace though. He’s already too busy making everyone laugh up there.”
George Takei referred to Perry’s passing as “a tragic piece of news to read” and added that “my heart goes out to his loved ones and long time cast mates”.
