The heartthrob of the classic television series Beverly Hills 90210 has passed away. Luke Perry has died in California at the age of 52, less than a week after suffering a massive stroke according to reports. He had been shooting scenes for Riverdale at the Warner Bros film lot before being taken to the hospital last week Wednesday.
Perry’s children, Jack and Sophie, fiancée Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, and his siblings, Tom Perry and Amy Coder, were with him when he passed, publicist Arnold Robinson said in a statement.
Perry most recently played the comic book character Archie’s father in Riverdale. He was also in films portraying characters in 8 seconds and The Fifth Element. He rose to fame on the hit tv show “Beverly Hills 90210”. The series was recently reported as perhaps having a reboot. It was not clear whether Perry planned to make any guest appearances on the revamped program.
