Perry was born in Massachusetts in 1969 and then raised in Ottawa, Canada, where he attended elementary school with Justin Trudeau, who later became Canadian prime minister.

As a teenager, Perry moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as an actor. In the late 1980s, he starred as Chazz Russell in Boys Will Be Boys and as Roger alongside Christina Applegate in teen movie Dance ‘Til Dawn.

But it was his role as Chandler Bing on Friends that catapulted him to global game.

The quick-witted Chandler was famous for his sarcastic one-liners, and the role earned Perry a Primetime Emmy nomination in 2002.
