Luke Perry Died at Age of 52, Co-Start Show Tribute

Luke Perry

Luke Perry, who burst onto the television scene and countless fan-magazine covers in 1990 as one of the core cast members of the Fox drama “Beverly Hills, 90210,” then went on to a busy career in television and film that included, most recently, the CW series “Riverdale,” died on Monday in Los Angeles. He was 52.

Perry, 52, had been hospitalized after suffering a “massive stroke,” last week, a representative said in a statement. He was surrounded by family and friends at the time of his death.

“The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning,” publicist Arnold Robinson said in a statement. “No further details will be released at this time.”

When he died, Perry “was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancee Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp,” and other close relatives and friends, his publicist said.

News of Perry’s death immediately triggered tributes and condolences from other celebrities, including Molly Ringwald, who said via Twitter, “My heart is broken. I will miss you so much Luke Perry. Sending all my love to your family.”

In a statement, the makers of Riverdale called Perry a “beloved” member of their team who was “everything you would hope he would be: an incredibly caring, consummate professional with a giant heart, and a true friend to all.”

It added that Perry had been a “father figure and mentor to the show’s young cast.”

Perry’s prolific acting career includes his extensive work as a voice actor. His famously husky voice has been part of animated series that range from The Simpsons and Biker Mice From Mars to Johnny Bravo.
