His autopsy was completed Sunday and his cause of death was listed as “deferred” pending toxicology results by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office.
It is unclear when the official cause of death will be released as toxicology testing could take weeks, according to the medical examiner’s office.
According to reports, no drugs were found at the scene and foul play is not suspected.
Perry rose to fame at the age of 24 after being cast as Chandler Bing on the sitcom Friends.
However, Perry wanted to be remembered for more than just his quirky character.
“The best thing for me, bar none, is if someone comes to me and says, ‘I can’t stop drinking, can you help me?’ I can say yes and go ahead and do it,” she said in an interview in November 2022 to Tom Power. “When I die, I don’t want ‘Friends’ to be the first thing mentioned. I want that to be the first thing mentioned.”

Before he died, Perry also spoke of wanting to work with Zac Efron again and hoped he would play a younger version of Perry in a biopic.
“The conversation started with him talking about his recovery and advocacy work and how he really wanted to create a foundation to help people on their road to recovery and donate generously money from his success to the industry to help other people recover,” Perry’s friend said. , Athena Crosby, who was among the last to see the 54-year-old actor alive, told Fox News Digital.
“He also talked about the medium of storytelling being the way he wanted to do it as well. Being an actor, he loved being creative, he loved being in movies and TV shows,” Crosby shared.
Days before his death, Perry met with his girlfriend Athena Crosby. He exclusively told Fox News Digital that Perry was “super positive” and “sober” when he saw him for lunch the day before he left.
“He was 100% sober when he passed,” Crosby revealed. “I mean, I can’t know exactly what he was thinking or feeling. I can only share my experience. And, of course, he was his own person who might have said, done, or thought things in the past day that I may never know.”
“In my interaction with him, he was extremely positive, sober, acting normal, speaking very well, he didn’t give me any impression that he was drugs or alcohol every kind. So I think people are speculating that this was a relapse situation. I just want to defend him and say it wasn’t.”

Perry was remembered by “Friends” co-creators as a “brilliant talent”.
“We are shocked and deeply, deeply saddened by the passing of our dear friend Matthew. It still seems impossible,” Marta Kaufman and David Crane told Fox News Digital. “All we can say is we feel blessed to have had him as a part of our lives.”
“He was a brilliant talent. It’s a cliché to say that an actor makes a role his own, but in Matthew’s case, there are no truer words. From the day we first heard him take on the role of Chandler Bing, there was no no one else for us.”
Perry was also honored by the cast of “Friends”, two days after his death.
“We are all so devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just friends. We are family,” the cast said in a statement to People. “There is so much to say, but right now we will take some time to grieve and process this unfathomable loss.
“We will say more in time, as and when we can. For now, our thoughts and love are with Matty’s family, his friends and everyone who loved him around the world.”
