American star Matthew Perry let the cat out of the bag by deleting a behind-the-scenes picture of himself while getting his makeup done for the shoot of his much-awaited project ‘Friends reunion’.
According to Page Six, Perry took to his Instagram handle on Saturday (local time) to share a behind-the-scenes snap of himself prepping for the upcoming ‘Friends’ reunion and deleted the post a few moments later.
“Seconds before eating a makeup brush, not to mention reuniting with my friends,” he captioned the selfie of himself in a makeup chair.
The post surpassed 27K likes before the actor deleted it from his account, Page Six confirmed.
The post was quickly taken down, but the shot of Chandler Bing about to get back in action was enough to get his ‘Friends’ fans in a frenzy.
The reunion was confirmed by co-star David Schwimmer, who told Andy Cohen in an interview aired early March that the cast and crew would begin production “in a little over a month.”
“I’m heading out to LA. So, finally, I mean, we figured out a way to film it safely, and there’s going to be a portion of it that we film outside because of, you know, for safety protocols,” he said at the time.
‘Friends’, which stars Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Perry in the lead roles, originally aired for 10 seasons on NBC from 1994 to 2004.
The reunion special was first announced in February 2020 by HBO Max and was scheduled to premiere that May, but then the COVID-19 pandemic happened, causing a major delay in shooting the reunion.
The special has long been slated to film on Stage 24, the original ‘Friends’ soundstage on the Warner Bros Studio lot in Burbank, California, with Ben Winston directing and executive producing alongside ‘Friends’ executive producers Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman and David Crane.
The American sitcom was touted as one of the most popular ones and is still the talk of the town among fans, who are eagerly waiting to see their favourite stars back together.
The beloved sitcom followed the story of six friends in their 20s and 30s who live in Manhattan, New York City.
