Friends cast members have paid tribute to James Michael Tyler.
As previously reported by OK!, the actor passed away on Sunday, October 24, aged 59 following a 3-year battle with prostate cancer.
He was best known for his role as Gunther on Friends.
"James Michael Tyler Our Gunther passed away last night. He was an incredible person who spent his final days helping others. God bless you James, Gunther lives forever," Friends executive producer Kevin S. Bright tweeted.
"Warner Bros Television mourns the loss of James Michael Tyler, a beloved actor and integral part of our FRIENDS family. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, colleagues and fans," the official Friends Twitter account posted.
"The world knew him as Gunther the seventh 'Friend,' but Michael’s loved ones knew him as an actor, musician, cancer-awareness advocate, and loving husband. If you met him once you made a friend for life," Tyler's manager, Toni Benson, said in a statement. "Wanting to help as many people as possible, he bravely shared his story and became a campaigner for those with a prostate to get a... blood test as early as 40-years-old."
The Modern Music alum announced his cancer diagnosis in June during an appearance on the Today show. "I was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer, which had spread to my bones," he said at the time. "I've been dealing with that diagnosis for almost the past three years. ... It's stage 4 (now). Late stage cancer. So eventually, you know, it's gonna probably get me."
The Scrubs actor still made an appearance during the Friends reunion earlier this year. "It was the most memorable 10 years of my life, honestly," he gushed during the reunion special. "I could not have imagined just a better experience. All these guys were fantastic and just a joy to work with. It felt very, very special."
