Matthew Perry could be set for star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame in huge honour after death

Matthew Perry could be set for star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame in huge honour after death

It's been nearly a week since the beloved Friends star passed away

The world was left in a state of utter shock after beloved Friends star, Matthew Perry, died last week.

The 54-year-old actor, best-known for playing the iconic character of Chandler Bing, was reportedly found dead in a hot tub at his Los Angeles residence on 28 October.

Friends, family, co-stars and fans all over are now mourning the monumental loss, and a private funeral for the beloved actor took place at the Forest Lawn cemetery in the Hollywood Hills.

It has since been reported that Perry could be set for a huge posthumous honour. However, it's up to his family to say yes.

The news of Perry's death was first confirmed by a statement from NBC - the network which aired Friends.

"We are incredibly saddened by the too soon passing of Matthew Perry," it read.

"He brought so much joy to hundreds of millions of people around the world with his pitch-perfect comedic timing and wry wit.

"His legacy will live on through countless generations."

Tributes from all over have since flooded in for the beloved actor, including from his co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow.

The heartbreaking tribute to him reads: "We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew.

"We were more than just cast mates.

"We are a family.

"There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss.

"In time we will say more, as and when we are able.

"For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world."

And it appears that's not the only way people are honouring Perry with 9News reporting: "There could be a late honour for the man who made the role of Chandler Bing so well-known and loved - a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame."

According to TMZ, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which oversees the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, said they would love to honour Perry with a star and posthumous ceremony.

However, the decision is reportedly up to his family to decide if and when that would happen.

If it does in fact end up happening, TMZ was told a family member would have to accept the star on his behalf.

Sources allegedly told TMZ that the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce would love to put Matthew's potential star in the same area as his Friends co-stars, Cox and Aniston, whose stars can be found of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street - one of Los Angeles' biggest intersections.

An investigation into Perry's death is ongoing and there is currently no cause of death.

There was no apparent foul play.
