Alongside a photo of James Michael Tyler on the Friends set, Lisa Kudrow shared, "James Michael Tyler, we will miss you. Thank you for being there for us all."

The actor's manager confirmed he passed away at his home in Los Angeles.

His manager stated: "If you met him once you made a friend for life. [He] is survived by his wife, Jennifer Carno, the love of his life."

"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."

The actor was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in 2018. It later spread to his bones.

"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," his manager added.

The actor said he wanted to help as many people as possible by speaking publicly about his cancer diagnosis.
