American Actor, James Michael Tyler has died at age 59. He was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer since 2018.
Tyler was popularly known for his recurring role as Gunther on the popular sitcom, “Friends,”
Tyler’s much-loved character worked in the show’s coffee house and had a crush on Aniston’s character Rachel, who also worked there as a waitress in the show’s early seasons.
