James Michael Tyler revealed his diagnosis of stage IV prostate cancer in June this year. “The world knew him as Gunther (the seventh “Friend”), from the hit series ‘Friends,’ but Michael’s loved ones knew him as an actor, musician, cancer-awareness advocate, and loving husband,” according to Tyler’s family member as quoted by news outlet TMZ.

Earlier this year, the actor was unable to be a part of the Friends Reunion episode due to his diagnosis. Later, he appeared on the special via a Zoom call.

“It was bittersweet, honestly. I was very happy to be included. It was my decision not to be a part of that physically and make an appearance on Zoom, basically, because I didn’t wanna bring a downer on it, you know? I didn’t want to be like, ‘Oh, and by the way, Gunther has cancer,’” he said of the reunion.

Apart from Friends, he appeared in an episode of the series Episodes and the 1999 film Motel Blue.
