About Luke Perry

A titan of television has passed away, as Luke Perry – a former heartthrob who found fame on ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ in the 1990s – has died after being hospitalized for a stroke. He was 52.

Fans of the original Beverly Hills, 90210 and Riverdale are in mourning. Luke Perry, whose role as Dylan McKay left 1990s kids swooning, passed away on March 4 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank, California. This tragic news comes after Luke was hospitalized after he reportedly suffered a massive stroke on Feb. 27. His reps told the publication that the doctors had sedated Luke following his stroke in hopes of giving his brain a “fighting chance” to recover from the trauma. Sadly, the damage was too much for him to overcome. has reached out for a statement and will update this post with any further information. Update: his rep released a statement below.

Meanwhile, Chris Nassif, Luke Perry’s agent during his years on Beverly Hills, 90210, released the following statement after his passing: “Luke will be missed, a friend gone way too soon. It seems like yesterday that I was Luke’s agent negotiating his role on Beverly Hills, 90210. I would like to express my condolences to his family and friends during this difficult time.”

Luke suffered a stroke when a “certain area of the brain experiences a sudden onset of lack of blood supply,” Dr. Dexter Sun EXCLUSIVELY told when discussing his condition. As to why Luke was sedated, Dr. Sun explained that “inducing a coma can improve the chances of survival and decrease the residual neurologic problems… Sedation is a lighter procedure, usually done to prevent the patient from having seizures or from moving. The current treatment is often administering a medicine called TPA [tissue plasminogen activator], one of the so-called clot-busting drugs, that can help to dissolve the clot and restore blood flow to the brain in an effort to minimize the long term damage that’s done to the brain.”

Tragically, Luke’s death comes on the heels of news of a 90210 reunion. On Feb. 27, Fox announced plans to reunite the cast of Beverley Hills, 90210, according to USA Today. Original stars Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling were set to return. Luke and Shannen Doherty were not on board (as he was presumably too busy with his commitments to Riverdale) but a cameo from Dylan — sadly, until his death — was not off the books.

Ziering, who was one of the first co-stars to mourn Luke, tweeted, “Dearest Luke, I will forever bask in the loving memories we’ve shared over the last thirty years. May your journey forward be enriched by the magnificent souls who have passed before you, just like you have done here, for those you leave behind.”

Since his death, friend Sarah Michelle Gellar posted a moving message about Luke on Instagram, writing, “My entire high school experience was shaped by Brenda and Dylan. Now I have to hold my dear friend @theshando hand, while she mourns the loss of #lukeperry This is not how it’s supposed to happen. I hope his family knows many lives he touched. ‘I chose. I chose you. I want you. I’ve always wanted you’ – my favorite quote.”

Born Coy Luther Perry III in Mansfield, Ohio, Luke grew up in the Midwest before relocating to Los Angeles in pursuit of an acting career. His earliest roles were in daytime soap operas, as he was Ned Bates in Loving and Kenny on ten episodes of Another World. His breakout role came in 1990, when he was cast as the enigmatic loner Dylan on the Fox teen drama, Beverly Hills, 90210.

“So my character, Dylan, was a poor little rich kid — everybody thinks he’s got everything going, and it’s just not always that great — but he drove a cool car and had cool hair,” Dylan told The Hollywood Reporter in 2015. “There was a running joke in the wardrobe department: People are going to be watching for the clothes. Get ’em upscale and get ’em trendy.” The move worked, as Luke became a teen idol, captivating hearts of millions. He stayed with the show until 1995, before leaving the show to pursue more mature roles. After appearing in a few TV movies, the independent feature Normal Life and the sci-fi adventure The Fifth Element, he returned to 90210 in 1998.

After 90210 went off the air in 2000, Luke appeared as Revered Jeremiah Cloutier in the HBO prison Drama Oz; starred in TV series like Jeremiah, Windfall and John From Cincinnati; and pursued an extensive voice-acting career, lending his voice to shows like Biker Mice from Mars, Pepper Ann, Clone High, and The Simpsons (where he played himself as Krusty the Clown’s half-brother.) Luke continued to appear in television shows and movies, though his career would experience a renaissance when he landed the role of Frederick “Fred” Andrews, on Riverdale. The chance to portray Archie’s father allowed Luke to flex his acting muscles in a new way.

“I like playing the dad because I like being a dad, and I think it’s a great character in the milieu of this show that I’m the grounded one, and I’m the guy who really cares about [K.J. Apa, who portrays Archie], who cares about doing a good job and being a good construction worker. I love that,” he told The Hollywood Reporter in 2017. “What you see on the screen is very much what you get. We have a real, honest communication between the two of us. I’ve met K.J.’s mom and dad, and I feel like that’s who I work for. I’ve told them, “I will look after your son as if he were my own,” and, in that regard, I do.”

Luke was married to Rachel Minnie Sharp from 1993 to 2003. The two welcomed two children into the world – daughter Sophie, (born June 7, 2000) and son Jack (born June 15, 1997). Jack is better known as professional wrestler “Jungle Boy” Nate Coy, who signed with All Elite Wrestling in 2019.

Coy Luther "Luke" Perry III (October 11, 1966 – March 4, 2019)[1] was an American actor. He became a teen idol for playing Dylan McKay on the TV series Beverly Hills, 90210 from 1990 to 1995, and again from 1998 to 2000. He also starred as Fred Andrews on the CW series Riverdale, and had guest roles on notable shows such as Criminal Minds, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Will & Grace.

Early life Perry was born in Mansfield, Ohio,[1] and raised in Fredericktown, Ohio. There, he was the school mascot, the Fredericktown High School Freddie. His mother, Ann Bennett, was a homemaker, and his father, Coy Luther Perry Jr., was a steelworker.[2]

Perry moved to Los Angeles shortly after high school to pursue acting. He worked as a paver and lived in various cities including Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Downey, and Paramount.[citation needed]

Career In an interview with Whoopi Goldberg in the 1990s, Perry said he auditioned for 215 acting jobs in New York before getting work on a TV commercial.[citation needed] After appearing in the music video "Be Chrool to Your Scuel" for the band Twisted Sister alongside Alice Cooper, Perry's earliest roles were in the daytime soap operas Loving (1987–88) and Another World (1988–89).

Following this, he won the role of the brooding millionaire's son Dylan McKay on Fox's teen drama, Beverly Hills, 90210. He had originally auditioned for the role of Steve Sanders but lost to actor Ian Ziering. While starring on 90210, Perry won a supporting role in the original film version of Joss Whedon's Buffy The Vampire Slayer (1992). Perry had already become a popular teen idol in the early 1990s. He also starred in Terminal Bliss in 1992.

Perry at the 1991 Emmy Awards Perry starred as Lane Frost in 8 Seconds in 1994. In an attempt to find more mature roles, he decided to leave Beverly Hills, 90210 in 1995. In the same year, he took a part in the Italian movie Vacanze di Natale '95, playing himself. Although he announced that 90210 was behind him, his departure would eventually turn out to be for only three years. During that time, Perry starred in the independent film Normal Life opposite Ashley Judd, starred in the TV science fiction movie Invasion (1997), and a Rodney King drama Riot (1997), and he had a small role in Luc Besson's science fiction adventure film The Fifth Element (1997). In 1998 he returned to 90210 for financial reasons.[citation needed] Perry then starred in the 1999 film Storm and went on to star in a 2002 television movie called The Triangle.

From 2001 to 2002, he starred in the HBO prison drama Oz, as the Reverend Jeremiah Cloutier. From 2002 to 2004 he starred in the post-apocalyptic TV series Jeremiah. In 2006 Perry co-starred in the ensemble drama series Windfall, about a group of friends who win the lottery. The series ran for 13 episodes during the summer of 2006 on NBC. In 2007 he landed the role of Tommy "Santa" Santorelli on the film The Sandlot: Heading Home, and he appeared in the 2008 western A Gunfighter's Pledge.

Perry also appeared in the HBO series John from Cincinnati, which premièred on June 10, 2007, and ran for 10 episodes; the series finale aired on August 12, 2007. He also starred in the Swedish film Äntligen Midsommar (Finally Midsummer), which was released in the summer of 2009.

He said of his role on Beverly Hills, 90210 as Dylan McKay: "I'm going to be linked with him until I die, but that's actually just fine. I created Dylan McKay. He's mine." However, he did not reprise his role on the spin-off. He stated: "When you're in the professional acting business, you have to look into all these offers, and I don't mean anything bad about it but creatively it's something I have done before and I don't know how it will benefit me if I do it again."

Perry finally revealed a major reason why he did not want to be part of this revival, citing the show's longtime producer Aaron Spelling: "The difference between CW bringing something back and Aaron Spelling doing something back is significant. And I cannot do it without Aaron." However, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, and Tori Spelling reprised their roles in the 2008 revival of the series.

Perry did considerable voice-over work for various animated series, often playing himself. He played himself (as Krusty the Clown's half brother) in an episode of The Simpsons (1993). He voiced himself in an episode of Johnny Bravo, giving Johnny dating advice after Johnny saved him from a stampede of fan girls. Perry parodied himself in an episode of Family Guy, in which he was labeled as gay by Peter and sues the family. His other voice work includes The Incredible Hulk, Biker Mice from Mars, Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm, and The Night of the Headless Horseman.

Perry guest-starred as gay characters in the sitcoms Spin City (1997) and Will & Grace (2005); he appeared as Carter Heywood's ex-boyfriend who subsequently fell in love with a woman on Spin City and played a geeky birdwatcher who caught the eye of Jack McFarland on Will & Grace. In 2005, Perry was reunited with former 90210 co-star Jennie Garth when he guest-starred on What I Like About You in a loose parody of their 90210 characters' relationship. In 2008, Perry guest-starred as rapist Noah Sibert in the season premiere of the television series Law & Order: SVU.[3] He also guest-starred as cult leader Benjamin Cyrus in an episode of Criminal Minds. In late 2009, Perry starred in The Killers' music video for their fourth annual Christmas single, "¡Happy Birthday Guadalupe!"

Also in 2009, Luke lent his voice talents in the Thomas Nelson's audio Bible production known as The Word of Promise. In this dramatized audio, Perry played the characters of Saint Stephen and Judas the disciple. The project also featured a large ensemble of other well-known Hollywood actors including Jim Caviezel, Lou Gossett Jr., John Rhys-Davies, Jon Voight, Gary Sinise, Jason Alexander, Christopher McDonald, Marisa Tomei, and John Schneider.[4][5]

Perry appeared on Broadway in 2001, in a revival of The Rocky Horror Show, playing Brad Majors.[6]

In 2004, he appeared in the London production of When Harry Met Sally as Harry, alongside Alyson Hannigan as Sally.[7]

Following his appearance in the stage adaptation of When Harry Met Sally, Perry was asked to reprise his role as Dylan McKay in a guest appearance on 90210. Owing to scheduling conflicts with Shannen Doherty, he was subsequently written out of the episode. He appeared as the American version of Inspector Space-Time in an episode of Community. In 2010 he played a con man/psychic in a second season episode of Leverage.

Perry returned to television in 2015 in the Up Network original series Detective McLean: Ties That Bind. He played Tim Olson, the brother of the lead character, who is arrested by his sister and sent to prison. Subsequently, the show revolves around his sister taking in his teenage kids. Perry also starred in the Hallmark Channel movie Love in Paradise in 2016.[8]

From 2017 until his death, Perry starred as Frederick "Fred" Andrews, Archie's father, on the CW series Riverdale.

Personal life and death Perry was married to Rachel Minnie Sharp from 1993 to 2003.[9][10] The couple had two children, Jack (born June 15, 1997) and Sophie (born June 7, 2000). His son, Jack, is a professional wrestler known by his ring name "Jungle Boy" Nate Coy, who is signed to All Elite Wrestling (AEW).[11][12][13]

Perry became an advocate for testing for colon cancer after undergoing a colonoscopy in 2015 that revealed precancerous growths.[14]

Perry suffered a massive stroke at his home in Sherman Oaks, California, on February 27, 2019. Five days later, on March 4, 2019, Perry died due to complications from his stroke. He was 52 years old.[15][16]

Personal Quotes (18) I knew that I was going to do Westerns. I like 'em. I go four-wheeling in my truck. I also like to fish, cook, do stuff around my house. I even studied fencing for a while. I don't think what I have to say is that important. It's hard and sometimes it's scary. It still amazes my mother. I went home for Christmas one year and there were fans all over the front lawn, hoping to see me. I've had tons of odd jobs, but I think that I would probably be a fireman because you get to see the results of your job. You get there and there is a house on fire. You leave and there's not a fire anymore. When I was a kid, I was at a bowling alley and I ran into a soda machine. I still have the scar on my right eyebrow obviously. My high school was nothing like West Beverly High, let me tell you. I grew up in Fredericktown, Ohio. I'm not much of a matchmaker. I think people have to make their own choices and mistakes and all that stuff. I think that sometimes kids use the show as a jumping off point for talking about things with their parents. I open to anything... just about anything. It was a fun film. I had a great time doing it. I was looking for a role just like that for my first movie role. I didn't want to have a starring role, because I wanted a chance to learn. I didn't want the whole thing riding on me. I was something of a prankster. One time I put a ski mask on my head and used a fake gun on the school secretary so that I could get some of my friends out of detention. I have a girlfriend, but I don't really want to talk about her. I won't name her. She isn't in show business, has nothing to do with it. So I'd rather just keep her out of it. I always felt like something of an outsider. But I identified with people up on the screen. That made me feel like I wanted to be up on the screen too. I felt like eventually I would get there. Growing up in the Midwest, people don't drive Porsches and Ferraris. They drive Fords and Chevys. And so even if you have the opportunity to buy a more expensive car, it doesn't occur to you because it's not what you relate to. Why doesn't Apple stop for a year and make medical devices? When people talk about technology, that's where I start to get a little hot under the collar because I know that it's the key to solving some of the world's biggest problems. Having a faster, thinner telephone is not one of the world's biggest problems. When I was a kid, I just devoured TV 24 hours a day. Now that it's actually available 24 hours a day, I'm usually busy doing other stuff. But I do watch TV when I can. There's a big difference between me and a real, legitimate working hand, or a world-champion rodeo cowboy. I play 'em, and I aspire to be like that, but those guys are tough.
