Luke Perry, most famously known for his role as Dylan McKay on the hit ’90s TV show Beverly Hills, 90210, died Monday morning at 52 after undergoing a severe stroke last week.
Perry skyrocketed to stardom after landing his role as the high school heartthrob on the teen drama, Beverly Hills, 90210, but was most recently recognized for his role on another popular teen show, Riverdale. His fellow cast members from both series shared thoughts and prayers over the weekend for a quick recovery from his stroke, which he, unfortunately, was unable to heal from.
“He was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiance Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, stepfather Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder, and other close family and friends,” Perry’s publicist Arnold Robinson told CNN. “The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world.
Although it’s a devastating loss, Perry left behind a life full of work that filled the hearts of so many, and his accomplishments will always be remembered.
