Luke Perry, 1966-2019

Actor/heart-throb Luke Perry of Beverly Hills, 90210 fame, has passed away at the age of 52.

Luke Perry, star of drama Riverdale on The CW, has died. He was 52. He suffered a “massive stroke” in Los Angeles, according to his family, February 27.

Perry played Fred Andrews, father of Archie, on Riverdale. He spoke of the role with B&C in the fall. “I enjoy playing the nice guy, the stay-at-home dad,” he said. “It’s something new for me.”

Perry had starred in the Fox hit Beverly Hills, 90201, playing bad boy Dylan McKay, who dated Shannen Doherty’s Brenda. The show was about a group of high school friends in fabulously wealthy Beverly Hills.

While Mrs. Earp remembers Perry from 90210, I will always remember him for his appearance on The Simpsons…

To wit:

Rest in Peace, Luke.

  1. My daughter and at least half of her friends had a huge crush on him when they were in high school. May he RIP.


  2. Ronni – Terrible timing, too. Yesterday was the one year anniversary of my FIL passing away.

    MelP – No one should ever die that young, IMO
