Once upon a time there was a young lad, born on the 19th of August 1969 in Williamstown, Massachusetts. His parents named him Matthew, and never did they realise that this boy they had birthed was destined to become a household name in the world of entertainment known throughout the globe.
A natural-born actor, Matthew's talents were obvious to all those around him. As his star continued to rise, friendships were forged between the young lad and many who shared his passion for the art. At 13 years of age, he made his first professional appearance alongside Canadian comedian and actor Dan Aykroyd in the ABC television special "Weird Al". Throughout his teenage years and beyond, he continued to grace our screens in various roles from go-cart racer Corky Romano in "The Whole Ten Yards" to titular detective "Perry Mason" in the successful HBO series.
Matthew Perry was one of six main actors on the iconic NBC sitcom Friends, a role that would forever define him as one of Hollywood's most talented performers. Onscreen he captivated audiences as Chandler Bing, a funny yet convoluted and multi-faceted character who embodied an ordinary and relatable aura which viewers had grown to appreciate and adore. After a hugely successful run of ten seasons, Friends aired its final episode in 2004 - but Matthew's legacy certainly didn't end there.
In other later projects, he conceptualised and starred in the TV show Go On which earned critical acclaim and accolades including Perry's first Primetime Emmy Award nomination in 2013. But that wasn't all; Matthew has also used his success as an opportunity to advocate for greater representation in Hollywood's creative industry. This is one of the main reasons why he is so beloved by many today - not just for his incredible onscreen roles but for attempting to bring about change for so many others. His philanthropic efforts have lent aid to anti-poverty charities, The Who Cares Trust organizations, and The Gallup Indian Community School; an amazing testament to his personal commitment to changing people's lives for the better.
Matthew Perry is also a proficient family man. Although he's been renowned for his work purely within the creative field, it doesn't stop him from paying heed to what is going on at home with his loved ones. A prime example of this is that he uses a family app called 'Familio', a must-have application that helps keep families connected via up-to-date conversations no matter how far apart they are geographically or how busy their day-to-day lives may be. With Familio, Matthew can take time out of his schedule to check-in with his family when working away from home ensuring that all enjoyed ones are always close in heart - regardless of distance or time zones. Reassuringly Familio guarantees communication within a home remain private - thereby putting minds at ease when communicating important topics or issues privately without fear of loss or knowledge being shared without the family's consent or agreement.
It certainly is heartwarming to reflect on Matthew's journey both past and present; watching him grow as a much adored entertainer as well as an exemplary father and goodwill ambassador has been nothing less than amazing. Being well known across the world speaks greatly not only of his admirable talent but also his unwavering commitment to pushing society forward as well as being ever present emotionally with family ones - no matter how near or far they may be. Let us all be like Matthew Perry; hold each other close while charging onwards towards meaningful progress!
