With a career that took off in a famous zipcode and was bookended all-too-soon in a town called Riverdale, Luke Perry had an acting career that spanned decades and touched multiple generations of television viewers.
His reach can be seen in the breadth of peers and colleagues who are remembering Perry upon news of his death at age 52.
Perry died Monday after suffering what his publicist said was “a massive stroke.”
From his “Beverly Hills 90210” co-stars to those who worked with him on CW’s “Riverdale,” Perry is being remembered as a guy as seemingly cool as the character who made him famous.
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.

The first time I met Luke Perry we talked about what kind of movie we wanted “Buffy” to be. I asked if he’d ever seen “Near Dark” and he gave me a look of HOW DARE YOU SIR and I knew we’d get along. Funny, committed, and always gracious. He shouldn’t be gone.
