TV icon and heartthrob Luke Perry, who rose to fame on “Beverly Hills, 90210” has tragically passed away after suffering a massive stroke Wednesday.
Luke passed away Monday morning at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank. According to his rep, Luke was surrounded by 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.
His condition deteriorated following the stroke and he was ultimately unable to make a recovery.
Luke’s medical crisis coincidentally struck on the very same day Fox announced it will reboot “90210” — the show on which he played Dylan McKay in the 90s.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.
After news of his massive stroke went viral, Luke Perry’s representative Arnold Robinson is speaking out and providing an update following the Beverly Hills 90210 and Riverdale actor being rushed to the hospital earlier this week. Arnold Robinson spoke to the Associated Press to clarify some misconceptions circulating through social media.
Arnold Robinson told the Associated Press that Luke Perry is currently under observation but did not provide any additional information regarding his current status.
At this point, it is unclear what Luke Perry’s current medical prognosis is or if he suffered any lasting damage from the stroke. As stroke may be caused by several underlying conditions, it is also unknown what triggered Luke Perry’s stroke.

Actor Luke Perry suffered a massive stroke Wednesday, and is currently hospitalized.
Paramedics responded to Luke’s home in Sherman Oaks around 9:40 AM after a call came into the fire department for someone suffering a stroke.
According to sources, the stroke he suffered was “massive.” When paramedics arrived at his home he was responsive and talking but his condition deteriorated and he was rushed to the hospital.
Prior to having the stroke, the actor was “doing very well health-wise,” a source exclusively told In Touch. That’s why the sad news of the health scare surprised many of his family members, friends and fans.
According to the insider, the actor, 52, was “rushed to the hospital in enough time to provide life-saving intervention.” At the moment, he’s being closely watched in case his state changes.
“He is being transferred to Cedars and will remain under observation. They are monitoring his vital signs,” adds the source.
“It’s too early to know if he will make a full recovery.”
Luke’s medical crisis coincidentally struck on the very same day Fox announced it will reboot “Beverly Hills, 90210” — the show on which he shot to fame, playing Dylan McKay in the 90s.
The 52-year-old currently stars as Archie’s dad, Fred Andrews, on “Riverdale” and had been shooting episodes recently in L.A. on the Warner Bros. lot.
A number of Perry’s former “90210” co-stars took to social media to extend their support and wishes for a quick recovery.
Ian Ziering wrote on Instagram, “No words can express what my heart feels hearing today’s shocking news. Let us all say a prayer for his speedy recovery.”
