90210 Star Luke Perry Dies at 52

The star of hit TV shows Beverly Hills 90210 and Riverdale, Luke Perry, has died at age 52 after suffering a severe stroke.


Fans of the famous actor are heart-broken all over the world as the news emerged on the front pages on magazines earlier this week.

Luke suffered a stroke last Wednesday and was immediately transferred to a hospital St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank.

According to the emergency dispatch audio obtained by the media, paramedics received the call for a stroke from Perry’s residence Sherman Oaks, California.

Doctors sedated him and gave their best to give him the best chance to recover from the massive stroke. At one point he was responsive and talking but later his condition worsened. The damage was just too extensive.

The comforting fact is that he died surrounded by his family and closest friends and they all got the chance to say their goodbyes.

According to his representatives, his children Jack and Sophie, fiance Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder, and other close family and friends were all at his side on this sad moment. The family announced his death thanking for all the support and prayers from his friends and fans around the world.

Riverdale executive producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Jon Goldwater, along with Warner Bros. Television and the CW, released a statement following Perry’s passing.

“We are deeply saddened to learn today about the passing of Luke Perry,” the statement reads. “A beloved member of the Riverdale, Warner Bros. and CW family, Luke was everything you would hope he would be: an incredibly caring, consummate professional with a giant heart, and a true friend to all. A father figure and mentor to the show’s young cast, Luke was incredibly generous, and he infused the set with love and kindness. Our thoughts are with Luke’s family during this most difficult time.”

Luke Perry was best known for his iconic role of Dylan McKay on the series Beverly Hills, 90210, that aired for ten years.

Later he went on to a busy career in television and film that included, most recently, the CW series “Riverdale”, where he played the main character’s father. He also starred in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Charles Manson movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” so we’ll get to see Perry’s last performance later this year.
