Another Friends cast member has posted an individual tribute to Matthew Perry. Courteney Cox, whose Monica Geller character ended up married to Perry's Chandler Bing on the show, on Tuesday posted a video on Instagram of the scene where the two first get together. "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 favorites," she wrote. "To give a little backstory, Chandler and Monica were supposed to have 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."

The remaining cast of Friends spoke as a group to salute the late Matthew Perry, and now co-star Matt LeBlanc is offering his own remembrance, reports USA Today. "It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye," LeBlanc wrote on a set of photos he posted to Instagram. "The times we had together are honestly among the favorite times of my life." Their characters—LeBlanc's Joey Tribbiani and Perry's Chandler Bing—were best friends on the show. "It was an honor to share the stage with you and to call you my friend."

LeBlanc, 56, also wrote that the 54-year-old Perry, who had struggled with substance abuse issues, was "finally free," per Page Six. But he ended on a lighter note: "And I guess you're keeping the 20 bucks you owe me." (Perry's Batman-themed posts before his death have fixated fans.)
