Fans left comments like: “It really is a great loss, a great actor and a great professional has left, rest in peace,” and: “What a shame! A big hearted man! A great actor!” as well as: “Beautiful photos of you both and lovely tribute to a great man.”

The British actress and model, 58, starred in the film alongside the late actor and Bruce Campbell. According to the film’s official synopsis: “The story follows a process server given the assignment to serve a British socialite with divorce papers, but is persuaded to serve her husband instead so that she can get a larger portion of his money in the divorce.”

While the film performed poorly both critically and commercially, it remains a favorite among Matthew’s fans, having been released at the height of the popularity of Friends.

His other notable on-screen credits include the 2000 film The Whole Nine Yards and its 2005 sequel The Whole Ten Yards, the film 17 Again (2009), and the TV shows Ally McBeal (2002), The West Wing (2003), The Ron Clark Story (2006), Mr. Sunshine (2011), and The Odd Couple reboot (2015-17).
