The morning of 29 October delivered haunting and saddening news that left the Hollywood industry grieving. Chandler Bing a.k.a Matthew Perry was found dead in his residence at the break of the dawn.
As smoothly as Chandler Bing was shown on-screen, Matthew Perry struggled behind the scenes with his well-documented drug addictions. However, in one of the episodes, Chandler Bing predicted that he would be the first to die.
Chandler Bing Predicted His Death In FRIENDS
Matthew Perry became a household name for Chandler Bing, the king of sarcasm. From “I’m hopeless and awkward and desperate for love”, to “I love maintaining you”, the fans have watched Chandler become emotionally mature and embrace his insecurities.
Out of all the six friends, he was the only one who related to Mr. Heckles, their downstairs neighbor. From rejecting girls for the silliest reasons to being the class clown, Chandler found hard luck in love, but eventually got over his fear of commitment and was finally with Monica Geller.
In season nine episode eight of Friends, Monica brought out her fancy China dinner set and ordered everyone to be extra careful with it. Unfortunately, by the end of the episode, Chandler ends up breaking all of them leading him to say, “I guess, I’ll be the one who dies first”, fearing the wrath of Monica who was extremely possessive about her China. While the fans laughed away at the comment, no one expected to see it becoming a reality this soon.
