Courteney Cox has shared a heartfelt tribute to her late Friends co-star, Matthew Perry.

The entertainment world was rocked by the tragic news that Perry had passed away at his Los Angeles home last month, leaving his millions of fans around the world devastated. He was just 54 years old.

Law enforcement sources have informed TMZ that there were no drugs or signs of suspected foul play at the scene. The coroner’s office has since confirmed that Perry's cause of death had been "deferred" at this time. This essentially means that an autopsy has been completed, but the examiner is now awaiting pending toxicology reports, a process that may take several weeks.

Perry was perhaps best known for playing the role of the iconic Chandler Bing in the hit 90s show Friends - in which, Courteney Cox played his on-screen wife, Monica Geller.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Cox shared a touching behind-the-scenes clip from the show - depicting the live audience's full reaction to finding out Chandler and Monica had hooked up. Check it out below:

Alongside the video, she wrote: "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 favorites.

"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.

Earlier today, another of Perry's Friends co-stars also paid tribute to the late star.

Matt LeBlanc starred as Joey Tribianni in the hit sitcom - spending much of the season playing Perry's on-screen roommate. Their antics have become TV history, and now, LeBlanc has shared a touching tribute to his late friend.

"Sharing several photos of the pair from the show, LeBlanc addresses his late friend as "Matthew", before writing: "It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye. The times we had together are honestly among the favorite times of my life.

"It was an honor to share the stage with you and to call you my friend. I will always smile when I think of you and I’ll never forget you. Never.

"Spread your wings and fly brother you’re finally free. Much love."

He then ended this post with a joke, adding: "And I guess you’re keeping the 20 bucks you owe me."

Although Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, and David Schwimmer are yet to share a personal tribute to Perry as of this writing, the main cast did release a joint statement as a group in response to the loss of their friend.

"We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just cast mates. We are a family," their statement read. "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," the statement continues. "For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world."

Our thoughts continue to go out to Perry's family, friends, and fans at this time.
