    Luke Perry Dead at 52

    Luke Perry, ‘90210’ and ‘Riverdale’ Star, Dies at 52
    Will Thorne
    6-7 minutes

    Actor Luke Perry, known for roles in “Beverly Hills 90210” and “Riverdale,” died on Monday after suffering a massive stroke on Wednesday. He was 52.

    “[Perry] was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancé 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,” his rep said in a statement. “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. No further details will be released at this time.”

    Born in Mansfield, Ohio, Perry moved to Los Angeles after high school to pursue acting. His TV career began when he was 16, and the actor cut his teeth acting in soap operas like ABC’s “Loving” and “Another World” on NBC, and doing voice work for animated series such as “The Incredible Hulk” and “Biker Mice From Mars.”

    However, in 1990 Perry became a household name for playing the brooding loner Dylan McKay on the smash hit teen drama “Beverly Hills, 90210” on Fox. The show became a phenomenon, catapulting Perry to full-blown teen idol status. He appeared on a racy Vanity Fair cover in July 1992.

    Perry had two runs on “90210,” one from 1990 to 1995 and another from 1998 to the show’s end in 2000, during which time his character struggled with alcohol abuse and drug addiction, and went through a series of tumultuous relationships with several other main characters including Brenda (played by Shannen Doherty) and Kelly (played by Jennie Garth).

    Coincidentally, Perry was hospitalized the same day Fox announced a six-episode revival of the show, featuring returning cast members Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, and Tori Spelling. Perry had not been announced to return.

    While starring in “90210,” Perry made a brief appearance as Billy Masterson in Luc Besson’s whacky sci-fi pic “The Fifth Element” in 1997. He co-starred in the quirky 2007 HBO series “John from Cincinnati” and had recurring roles on series including “Jeremiah,” “Oz,” and “What I Like About You.”

    More recently, Perry made a successful return to the TV drama genre with a regular role on the CW show “Riverdale.” He played Fred Andrews, the conservative, old-fashioned yet soft father of the show’s lead Archie Andrews (KJ Apa).

    The show’s writers were among those who took to social media to pay tribute to Perry.

    “Luke Perry…you were a joyful and vibrant soul. You will be missed but most certainly your legacy will be remembered forever. Rest in love and peace, friend,” a post from the writers’ room read.

    He will appear posthumously in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” playing the real-life Canadian-American actor Wayne Maunder who starred in the CBS Western TV show “Lancer.”

    Perry is survived by his daughter Sophie and his son Jack, a professional wrestler who goes by the ring name “Jungle Boy” Nate Coy.

    Damn... I saw him on Riverdale and thought he looked older than he should have, but this is still unexpected. 52 is way too young to be stroking out.

    My nephew just had a stroke at age 25. He was in shape and not overweight but he wasn't going in for an annual checkup and he had high blood pressure and didn't know it. He was lucky. The stroke was small and they said he won't have any long-term damage from it. Many people have high blood pressure and even diabetes and don't know they have it. Sometimes genetics causes strokes and not necessarily lifestyle. So go to the doctor once a year and have your blood work done even if you feel fine.

    Well Luke. Rest in Peace man. I enjoyed some of the stuff you did and I will never forget the time you grabbed FartMan's ass with both hands.

    Yeah, the guy was only a few years older than me.

    Gives one pause, to be sure.

    If you are like me you will find some comfort in treating life length like a competition.

    There is a great site where you can beat celebs by not dying, it cheers me up any way.

    http://www.deadoraliveinfo.com/

    I remember feeling a bit guilty after realizing I had just shouted out loud 'In your face Vitas Gerulaitis!'

    Fairwrning will know how I felt by the end of the week!

    Will be 49 in a few days, and, honestly, the last 19 years have all been gravy for me.

    Put another way: if I only have a few years left to go, well...I'm not looking to die anytime soon, don't particularly want to die anytime soon, but I don't have any regrets worth mentioning (what is done, is done) or any faggy queer 'bucket list' shite I wish I had gotten around to.

    I bought a fast motorbike when I turned 50. Hope to ride a wheelie down the middle of the road naked when I turn 60. The key to enjoying life is just not giving a fuck.

    I like what I've got and where I'm at, but...I'm not really looking to make old, old bones.

    Not that I'm out doing thrill-seeking liquor store holdups with a Born To Lose tattoo on my forehead, mind you, but I don't have any grand ambitions at this point in my life. I'm not going back to school to get retrained for a new career closing in on 50 years old. I'm not even really looking to make many /any new friends at this stage of the game. I'm just riding out the job I have for as long as I can do it and paying my bills. That's all I've got and all I want.

    Ok so now I'm looking for bozos out there with Born to Loose tattoos or Born too Loose.

    I know there must be some out there - this is how the internet wastes my time!

    The older I get, the less I give a shit. Even with extended family I haven't seen regularly since the early 1990s: these people just have no relevance to anything that's going on with my life, nor will they going forward. Not even a hate scene, but just the way it is.

    If you win the lottery they all will suddenly will want to come back into your life and you will have friends you never thought you had.

    Unfortunately for all of those people, I have a good memory of the last twenty years in terms of who stood by me, who ignored me, who mattered to me and who didn't. Like many who fantasize about winning the lottery in a big way, I have compiled a list of who I would take care of.

    The sad part isn't that the list is relatively short, but that even half of that list has quality people I'd practically have to beg to accept the money. I guess that's a by-product of choosing to associate with people who have character, as opposed to people who are characters. Leeches and long-lost friends/relatives can fuck off and stay lost.
