James Michael Tyler: Friends actor dies aged 59

US actor James Michael Tyler, who most famously starred as Gunther in the TV sitcom Friends, has died aged 59.

“Tyler passed away peacefully at his home in Los Angeles on Sunday morning,” a statement from his manager said.

“If you met him once you made a friend for life,” it added. “[He] is survived by his wife, Jennifer Carno, the love of his life.”

Tyler was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in 2018 which later spread to his bones.

“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,” his manager said.
