Riverdale and 90210 actor Luke Perry passed away yesterday due to suffering a massive stroke. The actor was only 52 years old surrounded by his loved ones in the hospital when he passed. The family is grateful for all the thoughts and prayers they’re receiving for their loss but still wish for privacy during this difficult time. It was only a week ago when Perry was hospitalized after it was reported that fire department EMTs picked Perry up from his home where they supposedly reported he suffered a stroke. Old friends and co-stars went to check on him while he was in the hospital and even though they stayed positive they knew something wasn’t right.
The actor once discussed in an interview how much the show 90210 had impacted his life. He explained that the show allowed him to further explore and expand his acting talents. However, his feelings changed for the show back in 2015 where he seemed ready to move beyond being in 90210. Perry had a predominant acting career with his latest role in the CW show Riverdale where he played Archie’s dad. He played the role for three seasons and the CW doesn’t have any answers right now about how they’ll handle Perry’s character after his passing. Rest in peace, Luke Perry.
