Matthew Perry fans think he was Chandler Bing even as a child actor, after watching resurfaced sitcom footage.
The late actor is perhaps best known for playing Chandler in Friends.
Perry died yesterday at his Los Angeles home aged 54.
“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.”
While Perry is well-loved for playing Chandler, he also appeared in films and shows such as Fools Rush In and The Ron Clark Story as well as shows such as Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and The West Wing.
And when he was much younger, Perry appeared in the 1985 episode of Charles in Charge as Ed.
But fans have drawn parallels between this 80’s kid and his Friends character.
The young Perry wears a tie and sweater vest, speaking very politely and maturely for his age.
And fans point out in the comments: “Matthew being Chandler even as a child actor... The mannerism and way of speaking is just accurate as an adult chandler Character would do.”
As others echoed: “The fact that this is also a sitcom makes me think even more that it’s just young Chandler Bing.”
One even joked: “I just thought for a sec that Janice is about to enter through that door.”
And another put: “Could he be anymore Chandler!”
Perry played Chandler in Friends throughout its 10 seasons between 1994 and 2004.
He was nominated for various awards for his performance on the show and scooped up the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, alongside his co-stars.
Sharing a photo of the pair, she wrote: “What a loss. The world will miss you Mathew 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."
An investigation into Perry’s death is ongoing and a cause of death is yet to be confirmed.
