Remembering Luke Perry 1966 - 2019

Actor Luke Perry has died of a stroke at the age of 52.

At sixteen, Perry began acting in soap operas like ABC’s ‘Loving’ and ‘Another World.’ In 1990, Perry gained widespread fame for his role on the teen drama ‘Beverly Hills, 90210.’

In 2017 he returned to television, playing Archie’s father, Fred Andrews, on “Riverdale.” The cast and crew of “Riverdale” has been publicly mourning the loss of their on-set “father figure.” While former “90210” cast mates described the tragic death as heartbreaking. 

He will appear posthumously in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” playing the real-life actor Wayne Maunder.
