|Matthew Perry Bio:
Matthew Perry was born on August 19, 1969 in
Williamstown, Massachusetts but raised in Ottawa, Ontario. He is the only
child of Suzanne and John Perry, who were divorced when he was less than a
year old. Perry's dad is known as the guy in the Old Spice commercials.
Perry's mom is a former Canadian TV anchor and onetime press secretary for
Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.
Perry is a tennis-lover. He started at the age of 4. At 13, he was ranked
as the No.2 player in Ottawa. Perry began acting in seventh grade when he
played a gunslinger named Arriba Arriba Geneva in his Ashbury College
production of a play called The Life and Death of Sneaky Fitch.
His mother married Canadian anchorman Keith Morrison when Perry was 10 and
proceeded to have four more children: Caitlin, Emily, Willy, and Madeline.
At 15, Perry moved to L.A. to test his tennis and acting skills. He moved
in with his father, John's second wife, Debbie, and their daughter Marie.
He was prepared for his first big U.S. tennis match. Unfortunately, things
didn't go well so Perry decided to pursue an acting career instead.
In 1985, Perry starred as George Gibbs in the 1985 Buckley School
production of Our Town. At 16, Perry got his first big break from a
waitress in a San Fernando Valley restaurant. She gave him a napkin with a
note written on it by a director who had spotted Perry while dining. Perry
auditioned and won a small role in the 1988 River Phoenix film A Night in
the Life of Jimmy Reardon.
In 1993, Perry and good friend Andrew Hill Newman decided to write their
own sitcom, Maxwell's House, which was about the lives of twentysomething
friends. Too bad NBC already had a similar sitcom in the works. This
sitcom was later known as Friends. In 1994, Perry auditioned for the show
and got the part of Chandler Bing.
As of now, Perry is enjoying the fame and fortune he is receiving from
