Actor Matt LeBlanc, on Wednesday, remembered his friend and co-star Matthew Perry, more than two weeks after Perry passed away.

“It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye. The times we had together are honestly among the favourite times of my life. It was an honour to share the stage with you and to call you my friend,” he wrote, sharing some pictures of the two. He also wrote, “Spread your wings and fly brother you’re finally free.”

Perry's Friends co-star Courteney Cox, too, took to Instagram to pay tribute to him. “I am so grateful for every moment I had with you Matty and I miss you every day. When you work with someone as closely as I did with Matthew, there are thousands of moments I wish I could share. For now, here’s one of my favourites,” she wrote. She also wrote how their characters Monica and Chandler were supposed to have just a one-night fling in London, but because of the audience's reaction, it became the beginning of their love story. “In this scene, before we started rolling, he whispered a funny line for me to say.

He often did things like that. He was funny and he was kind,” she wrote.

Writing the note on Instagram, Cox shared the scene where their characters Chandler and Monica were together in a hotel room in London, when David Schwimmer, who plays Ross, enters the room. 

“You are all a tribute to each other. And the legacy you created together is forever part of a cultural family we will always have and cherish. Thank you, Matthew, for your amazing talent and humour, and your longing to heal others,” actor Laura Dern commented on Cox's post. 

54-year-old Perry was found dead at his home on October 28. He was best known for his role as Chandler Bing in the iconic television series Friends. One of the first stars from the sitcom to react to Perry's death was Maggie Wheeler, who played his on-screen girlfriend, Janice. “What a loss. The world will miss you Matthew Perry. The joy you brought to so many in your too-short lifetime will live on. I feel so very blessed by every creative moment we shared,” she wrote. Perry has also acted in movies like The Whole Nine Yards, Fools Rush In and 17 Again
