Lisa Cash, who appeared in 1999 episode The One in Vegas from season five has spoken of what it was like to be an extra, while also revealing that her role was originally meant to have a different outcome.

But Matthew knew that Friends fans would never forgive Chandler for being unfaithful, which is why after rehearsing the scene, the late Chandler star paid a visit to the writers and asked them to axe the storyline.

Just six days after his passing, the actor’s funeral took place, with the venue for the service held opposite where Friends was filmed for a decade at Warner Brothers studios. Attended by his loved ones, it is reported that only close friends and family spoke at the service, with an emotional song played at the end.
As well as his emotional parents, the co-stars that Matthew starred alongside in the sitcom Friends, were also in attendance at his farewell. Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, and Courteney Cox were seen at the send-off, with fellow co-stars David Schwimmer and Matt Le Blanc also joining the group later on.
