Not much is known about Molly, however, her bio on filmmaking platform reveals: "Molly Hurwitz is a Manager and Producer at Zero Gravity Management, a management and production company with over 500 clients and over 20 productions under their belt."

Matthew's Friends co-stars will no doubt be over the moon to hear the news, as the cast has remained close over the years.

When Matthew celebrated his birthday in August, Courteney Cox, who played his on-screen wife, dedicated a gushing message to Matthew, who is best known for portraying Chandler Bing on the iconic show.

“Happy birthday to my talented, funny, friend!” Courteney wrote above an old photo of the pair snuggled up and smiling for the camera.
