You may remember Aisha Tyler, who played Charlier Wineler on the ninth season of Friends. In a post, Tyler commented on Perry’s stellar work ethic throughout the years, saying, “He had a gentleness and generosity of spirit that was unparalleled. I learned how to tell a joke perfectly just by watching him work. And I will never forget the moment he leaned in, on my first night of taping Friends, to tell me warmly, ‘Get ready for your life to change.’ Rest well, Matthew Perry. Thank you for the kindness and laughter.”
Tyler even recalled the moment Perry said that to her, saying, “It was a really sweet, kind thing to say to someone who’s just petrified and just trying not to pee on herself a little bit from fear.” Tyler took this memory with her for the rest of her life. Sometimes, one small act of kindness can change someone’s life, which is just what happened here (via CBS News).
