Luke Perry, fan favorite from the 90s series Beverly Hills, 90210 has passed away after suffering from a massive stroke last week. He was 52.
News of Perry’s stroke dominated headlines at the tail end of last week. So news of his passing isn’t exactly a shock. I never watched 90210 but the impact that news of his death has already made online I figured I’d post. He was involved in the show for the first 6 seasons and then the final 2. He became a favorite among teens during the time. Perry has worked consistently ever since the show ended but he seemed to have gotten a second wind by playing Archie Andrews’ dad in Riverdale, a show much like the one that made him famous.
What makes this news even more unfortunate is that it comes right after a 90210 reboot was announced with former cast members returning. It was announced just the day before Perry’s stroke.
He was cast in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and apparently finished his work on the film before his death.
Former cast mates have already paid tributes online to a man who definitely died too young.
