Lisa Kudrow has paid an emotional tribute to her co-star Matthew Perry after the Friends star tragically died last month.
The Phoebe Buffay actor posted an emotional message to Instagram just a day after Matt LeBlanc and fellow Friends actors paid their respects.
Perry sadly died at his home in Los Angeles on 28 October, with reports saying he was found in his hot tub.
It is believed that no drugs were found at the scene of Perry’s death, with law enforcement telling TMZ that first responders were initially called to Perry’s home for a 'water rescue'.
"We are heartbroken by the tragic loss of our beloved son and brother,” his family said in a statement. "Matthew brought so much joy to the world, both as an actor and a friend."
Taking to Instagram, Kudrow has now paid her respects, saying: "Shot the pilot, Friends Like Us, got picked up then immediately, we were at the NBC Upfronts. Then…You suggested we play poker AND made it so much fun while we initially bonded. Thank you for that.
"Thank you for making me laugh so hard at something you said, that my muscles ached, and tears poured down my face EVERY DAY.
"Thank you for your open heart in a six way relationship that required compromise.
"And a lot of 'talking'.Thank you for showing up at work when you weren’t well and then, being completely brilliant.
"Thank you for the best 10 years a person gets to have. Thank you for trusting me.
"Thank you for all I learned about GRACE and LOVE through knowing you. Thank you for the time I got to have with you, Matthew."
"Oh boy this one has cut deep..." she wrote on Instagram, sharing a black and white photo of them working together on the much-loved sitcom in the 90s.
"Having to say goodbye to our Matty has been an insane wave of emotions that I’ve never experienced before. We all experience loss at some point in our lives.
"Loss of life or loss of love. Being able to really SIT in this grief allows you to feel the moments of joy and gratitude for having loved someone that deep. And we loved him deeply.
"He was such a part of our DNA. We were always the 6 of us. This was a chosen family that forever changed the course of who we were and what our path was going to be."
