Luke Perry has passed away at 52

This is such sad news. TMZ is reporting that Luke Perry has died following complications from a stroke. He is said to have passed away this morning at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank surrounded by his friends and family. Last week on Wednesday Luke suffered a stroke at home. Everyone was praying for his full recovery and hoping he would pull through.

Luke Perry… has died after suffering a massive stroke … TMZ has learned.

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.

As we first reported, he was rushed to the hospital last Wednesday morning after suffering the stroke while at his Sherman Oaks, CA home.

His reps said doctors had sedated Luke, hoping to give his brain a fighting chance to recover from the trauma of the stroke … but apparently, the damage was too extensive.

[From TMZ]

He was so young and this is devastating news. I will always remember Luke as Dylan McKay from Beverly Hills 90210, which I grew up with. He gained so many more fans with his role on Riverdale playing Archie’s father. We are all so sorry to hear this and our thoughts are with his friends and family at this time.

Here’s an interview Luke did about his character on Riverdale. This one really hurts.

    This is too sad. Rest in peace Luke!!

  2. smcollins says:

    😢 RIP Luke. Thanks for being a part of my teen years.

    • Milla says:

      KEITH FLINT AND LUKE PERRY IN A DAY…. my childhood is gone. Rest in peace 😢😢😢

  3. Eric says:

    Dylan McKay

  4. Mrs. Peel says:

    Very sad. He’ll always be Dylan McKay, forever young. RIP sir.

  5. Prairiegirl says:

    Oh! That’s awful. He was a terrific actor. Sympathies to his family and friends.

  6. Kimma1216 says:

    This is so sad. He was so young and even outside of 90210 I really enjoyed watching him on Riverdale and other shows he would turn up on. This really just gave me goosebumps and my heart goes out to his family. I was not expecting to see this outcome. So sad.

  7. Valerie says:

    🙁 I had a feeling the outcome wasn’t going to be good when they kept silent. That’s so devastating for his friends and family.

    • Moneypenny says:

      I had the same feeling. I was hoping I was wrong :(. Very very sad.

    • greenmonster says:

      I had this exact thought just today. I can’t stop crying. Came across an amazing quote by Shannen Doherty when she was asked about Luke the other day: “I can’t talk about it here ’cause I will literally start crying but I love him and he knows I love him. It’s Luke, and he is my Dylan.”

      • Valerie says:

        I saw that, my Dylan, omg. Sigh. As corny as it sounds, this is one of those deaths that makes me realize how short life is. He was just hit without warning.

      • greenmonster says:

        The “my Dylan” part just made me cry harder. And it doesn’t sound corny at all that his death makes us realize how short life is. Luke was only 52, still around last week and all of a sudden he is gone.

  9. IE says:

    So sad

  10. L84Tea says:

    So sad. 🙁

  11. sommolierlady says:

    Heartbreaking for his his and family. So young. RIP.

    • cannibell says:

      Yes, this. My family loved him as Pike in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” the movie version. My daughters and I can all pretty much recite it from memory.

  12. BlueSky says:

    this is so sad, so young.

  13. Nancy says:

    It’s weird how you feel you know these people. I was all about Dylan growing up. Once again, time to reflect on how each day matters and nobody is promised tomorrow. RIP Luke Perry

  14. Mia4s says:

    Only 52, and by any report I’ve read a very nice guy. And so much scum continues to thrive. Sigh…sometimes I really hate this universe. RIP and good journey on.

  15. Christin says:

    Good (underrated) actor and apparently a truly good person.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      I always thought he was underrated as well. Ugh, this is so sad. His poor family. Especially his mom. It’s unbearable to lose a child. My heart hurts.

      • Christin says:

        Such a reminder that no one has a guarantee of another day. Sudden losses are hard on surviving family. His family hopefully has a good memory of whatever their last conversations were.

      • Lady D says:

        As I recently learned, if you have something you want to say to someone, do it now. You never know.

  16. Lucy says:

    This is so incredibly sad, I don’t know what to say. Didn’t get to see him in 90210, but my parents really liked him. I thought he was one of the best parts of Riverdale, and I know all the young cast loved him. May he rest in peace.

  17. Sash says:

    This is so very sad. RIP

  18. Shannon Malcom says:

    I am just so sad about this. RIP.

  19. Veronica S. says:

    Not a total surprise, unfortunately. A matter of minutes can make the difference in surviving a stroke. A shame for his family to lose him so suddenly.

  20. HeyThere! says:

    No no no no no no noooooo!!!! Omg!!!! This is devastating and I don’t even know him! 💔 I’m a big fan of Riverdale and I’m in shock.

  21. Bettyrose says:

    I audibly gasped when I saw the news. Way too young.

    • Mel says:

      Yes! Me too, I never expected this outcome. I haven’t kept up with the news but I thought he would make a full recovery. This is so sad.

    • Margie says:

      Me too! I’m with my son at the children’s museum, and I gasped so loud another mom was like, is everything ok? I was like, no, holy sh*t, Luke Perry died! And she gasped. It’s a hard loss for our generation.

  22. hogtowngooner says:

    Oh my god, he was my first celebrity crush. RIP Dylan McKay 🙁

  23. Becks1 says:

    So incredibly sad. I feel lame for being so upset over this, but I’m kind of sniffling at my desk. He was so young.

    • Booradley says:

      Me too. I just heard and I can’t just sit here working. I’m so heart sick, I wanted him to recover even though I work in healthcare and knew he probably wouldn’t.
      Just sick

  24. Usedtobe says:

    This feels so wrong. And hurts so much. 90210 was my youth. This is beyond sad. I also loved him in the movie 8 Seconds. I may have to go back and watch that one soon. Heartbreaking. His poor family and those who knew and loved him.

  25. The Other Katherine says:

    Aw, man, this is sad news. I was never a 90210 watcher, but he had an industry rep as a genuinely decent guy, and his face was so much a part of the cultural backdrop of the ’90s. Sincere condolences to his fiancee and the rest of his family.

  26. NWRose says:

    This one really hurts. Crushing him since my pre-teens. And also realizing my hubby is close in age as Luke too. RIP Luke.

  27. Nic919 says:

    This is sad.

  28. Lee says:

    So sad and heart breaking. Too young. My prayers are for his kids and loved ones. RIP

  29. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I had a HUGE crush on Luke Perry growing up. I had posters of him all over my bedroom walls. This is SO sad and a reminder that life is so short and we never know how much time we or the people we love have on this earth. I feel so sorry for his family, especially his kids. RIP Luke.

  30. stormsmama says:

    So young…how scary.

  31. Parigo says:

    This actually makes me really sad

  32. Andrea says:

    I had a HUGE crush on him in the 90’s. He was sooo young! So sad.

  33. LeLe says:

    I am so devastated and heartbroken. He was my forever love since I was a young girl growing up with 90210. May his family find peace and comfort in the coming days, weeks, months and years without him. I think I’ll go watch 8 seconds and cry 😭

  34. a reader says:

    Between this, the passing of former Cure drummer Andy Anderson last week, and the news this morning that Keith Flint of Prodigy took his own life today, I am having a real hard time processing this.

    It is TOO DAMN SOON for GenX (and our idols, such as Andy) to start dying off.

    Luke was only 6 years older than I am, Keith was only 3 years older. I am so not ready to fully confront my own mortality. It’s too soon, it’s just too soon.

  35. Jegede says:

    Awful and horrendous.

    I can’t believe how much I’m crying.😢

  36. CES says:

    My grandpa died a few weeks ago, before that a family friend, before that my friends mom, before that my beloved cat. Now this. Enough with the death 2019. 😭

    • Spicecake38 says:

      Prayers to you @Ces

    • Nancy says:

      When it rains, it pours @CES. I was you last year. Sometimes it seems the sun will never shine again, but it always does. Everybody goes through cycles where they lose more than one loved one in a short time span. You will be better. Be strong for those you love, and hopefully they will be there for you as well.

    • Snowflake says:

      Oh, I’m so sorry for your loss. *hugs*

  37. Vanessa says:

    This is so sad. 🙁 RIP

  38. Moneypenny says:

    So very sad. He was the best part of 90210 and by all accounts, a very nice man. Forever Dylan McKay <3

  39. Darla says:

    I’m a Gen Xer and 90210 is in my blood of course. A map of my youth.

    Gawd I feel old.

    RIP Luke. You were way too young to go.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Same, Gen X here and Luke will never be forgotten!

    • Ali says:

      So sad!!!

      I graduated high school the same year as the 90210 kids. This shook me. Too young to die. 🙁

      • Tourmaline says:

        Me too! Class of 1993!

      • TaniaOG says:

        This is so incredibly sad. I’m a GenX’er as well. I’ll never forget him as Dylan, or when he and Brenda broke up and they played REMs Losing my Religion. Omg it was epic. He was great on Riverdale and I was happy for him to have some success after 90210. How heartbreaking for his family.

      • Mrs. Darcy says:

        Another class of ’93 er here. I was also remembering how the graduation ep of 90210 made me feel all of the things at the time, even though I had basically stopped watching it after Brenda left. Luke Perry’s impact in that first season was unreal. He had such charisma and presence, the James Dean comparisons were totally justified, Dylan was such a sweet, vulnerable good guy underneath the “bad boy” veneer. I was watching a few 90210 compilation clips on Youtube last night and wow the memories. What an incredibly premature and sad loss, I was so happy he got a career renaissance with Riverdale and he sounded like such a genuinely lovely man. It’s just all very sad, I feel so bad for his family, they lost him way too soon.

  40. Bren says:

    I rarely get emotional over celebrity deaths, but this one hit me hard. When the reports came out last week that he suffered a massive stroke and was under observation, I knew right away that the outcome would not be positive. My heart goes out to his children, family and friends. May he Rest in Peace.

  41. Sam says:

    He had a cool part at the beginning of The Fifth Element. In the movie Clueless, Dionne says, “Cher is saving herself for Luke Perry.” Nice to hear he not only played the good guy on screen, but in life.

  42. Rae says:

    RIP. Far too young.

  43. Nemo says:

    also: Keith Flint of The Prodigy.

  44. Littlefishmom says:

    This is so so sad. God be with his family and friends.

  45. SM says:

    It does feel like someone just ripped a small part of early youth…. praying for strength to his close ones at this time.

  46. Amy says:

    Noo… not Riverdale Dad, omg!!! I was definitely worried but I didn’t think it was… that bad… 🙁 I didn’t grow up watching him, though I was a 90s kid, but he seemed so sweet and kind on Riverdale and played a really Good Dad to Archie! Ughhh that’s so sad, 52 is way young. RIP.

  47. hezzer19 says:

    I am way more upset by this than I would have expected.

    I’m going to marathon Jeremiah. As much as I love Dylan McKay (Dylan and Kelly 4Ever!) Jeremiah will always be my favourite Luke Perry character.

    • a reader says:

      Blasphemy! Dylan + Brenda forever!

      😉 – gosh, I miss the innocence of youth, arguing over which couple to ship….

      • Nancy says:

        It’s like a Betty/Veronica thing. I always loved Brenda with Dylan. I posted the other day that Spelling broke their characters up because Brenda wasn’t upset about losing her virginity. Then he puts Kelly in her place, who already had been with Steve. Those were the days. When Shannon got cancer, Luke said she had been thrown under the bus, and he was accused of driving it. He said he loved their characters together. He further said he knew he would die as Dylan and that was fine with him because he created Dylan. Wow. Very sad indeed. He was so sexish in the day and not one scandal involving him all this time. Bless his soul.

      • Nev says:


      • greenmonster says:

        Just saw an interview of him from last year or so. They talked about a possible reunion of the original 90210. He was asked if he would be part of it and he said he totally would if Shannen is part of the reunion, if not he would have to think about it. What a lovely soul.

      • Nancy says:

        That wouldn’t surprise me @greenmonster. He was a stand up guy. I got curious and looked at Andrea Zuckerman’s age………..58!!!! I guess Shannon and Jennie were the only teenagers IRL. Man we all get shook when our childhood favs go suddenly. So sad. …..that reunion supposedly is happening this summer, but Luke didn’t sign on because of Riverdale. Damn, you literally never know what’s around the corner, which is probably a blessing.

      • TQB says:

        Yes class of ’93!

        People mag was running THAT photo of Brenda and Dylan on prom night and… it’s just everything, you know? They were so beautiful and young – if I made a time capsule of high school, this would be THE image I’d use to represent pop culture.

    • Jegede says:

      Dylan 💖 Kelly.

      They dated on/off in real life too.

      Jennie must be shattered.😭😭😭

  48. Lisa says:

    Very sad news I was hoping he would recover.

  49. minx says:

    So sorry, R.I.P.

  50. me says:

    Such sad news. I feel for his family. When I look back on high school, a lot of my memories are of watching 90210. It was such a huge deal. This one hurts.

  51. Tiffany says:

    This makes me sad. I am at my desk crying right now.


  52. Lorelei says:

    Oh god, that first clip just broke me 💔

    I was always a Dylan girl, but I’m so much more upset by this than I would have expected to be.

  53. holly hobby says:

    This made me really sad. 52 is really young. I did watch the early years of 90210 and he’s not that much older than me. So sad for his family.

  54. Dee says:

    So surprised and sad to hear this today.

  55. FHMom says:

    This is awful. I’m so sad for him and his family.

    This is the third celeb death I read about today. In addition to Keith Flint, Janice Freeman, who was a finalist on the Voice a year or two ago, and a cancer survivor, also died.

  56. Lana234 says:

    RIP Luke Perry you will be missed

  57. paddingtonjr says:

    RIP Luke Perry. I didn’t expect to be so affected by his passing, but, when I saw the news alert from ABC News, I started crying. Beverly Hills 90210 was the “must-see” show: in my boarding school and later in college, it was the weekly tradition to watch 90210 and later Melrose Place in someone’s dorm room or the dorm lounge. I loved watching the show and the various parodies (from “SNL”, “Madtv” and “The Ben Stiller Show”) and, for the last episode, my college friends and I watched it at the same time, although we were scattered around the world, while on the phone with each other.

    I liked seeing Luke’s later work as well; it was a pleasant surprise to see him play bad guys on Oz and Criminal Minds. I’m glad he found a new audience with Riverdale. He will be missed.

  58. Liz version 700 says:

    This is so sad I am almost in tears like a part of my teenage years just died. He seemed like a very good person I will keep his family in my thoughts. I just lost my dad in 2017 so I have his kids in my thoughts especially 😢😢😢😢

  59. Nev says:

    Brenda and Dylan Forever

  60. Lizzie says:

    This is very sad news. Best wishes to his family and friends and colleagues. He was dependably talented, handsome and seemingly very well liked. RIP.

  61. Becky says:

    St. Joe’s is a terrible hospital-so many people I know have had terrible care there. They killed one friend with their negligence.

  62. tmbg says:

    I can’t believe it. I loved him so much on 90210 and in 8 Seconds, and probably would have enjoyed him on Riverdale if I’d watched it. He just had such a nice screen presence. RIP, Luke. 😞

  63. Jess says:

    So sad. I was a teen when 90210 began and was obsessed with it, with him, with the Dylan-Kelly-Brenda love triangle. Surprised how much this has shaken me.

  64. paranormalgirl says:

    One of my friends was a production assistant for years. She worked with him and said he was so lovely to everyone. RIP.

  65. Jerusha says:

    I was some 30 years too old for 90210 so I never saw it, but Mr. Perry seemed like a really nice man. Gone way too soon. This is a tweet I saw a few days ago. RIP.

  66. Hmmm says:

    Looking back at his old 90210 photos it seems like he was the first one to start the forehead scrunch and squinty eye thing… like the sun is in your eyes. Bieber and jaden Smith do it all the time.

  67. NotHeidisGirl says:

    This is so sad. I always had a soft spot for Dylan Mckay. RIP Luke 💔

  68. Lucy2 says:

    I had a crush on him at the beginning of 90210. 🙁
    By all accounts he seemed to be like a very nice man. I’m so sorry for his friends and family, especially his kids.

  69. JANAK says:

    This is just so tragic, and a stone cold reminder that your 50’s are the most dangerous decade for both men and women. We all need to know the signs of strokes and heart attacks!!

    • Nancy says:

      Is that a fact about your 50’s?? I still have to go through my 40’s, but have already been through some stuff. Sigh. Such a sad day.

  70. JRenee says:

    This makes me extremely sad.
    Relatively so you..

  71. Fluffy Princess says:

    Ugh! Noooo! This is just too sad! RIP Luke Perry, gone much too soon!

  72. BLOCKED CAUSE I AM says:

    A little sad. Loved him as Dylan. Even when his character betrayed Brenda with Kelly.. yes, I said betrayed, I was very invested in the Brenda/Dylan romance.
    He gave us such joy as an actor. So young to pass away. Light and love to his family and friends.

    Thank you Mr. Perry. You were loved. You were truly appreciated by many.

    • Diana says:

      That was a double betrayal because Kelky was her best friend! Ugh that triangle still brings up feelings in me. I loved Luke Perry and his character, Dylan was my adolescence. RIP

  73. Aang says:

    90210 was so cringeworthy but I still watched. It killed me that Dylan was a world weary 16 year old former drug/alcohol/sex addict. Like when did he start all that to have been clean for a year at 16? But I loved him and Brenda together and still hate the Kelly character.

    • KLO says:

      Haha same

    • Nancy says:

      It’s funny how vested we all are in that triangle! I hated Kelly and wasn’t happy with Dylan when Brenda went to Europe. I was young, but I remember every episode. After Brenda/Shannon left the show, it was over for me too. I did watch occasionally and was happy Dylan married Antonia and not Kelly. This brings me back to that time in life. It is a testament to Luke Perry and his whole demeanor that make us remember him and honor him for his life and the memories he left us.

  74. Olive says:

    weird to see my friend brandy’s tweet here!

  75. KLO says:

    I am sad. I will forever remember watching him play Dylan every saturday night when I was a kid…

  76. Ewissa says:

    This is so soo sad!
    He was part of my childhood/teenage years as Dylan! And I was so pleasantly surprised when I saw him in Riverdale and back on screen.

    Life is so not fair!
    Yet O.Osbourne and K.Richards still going….
    RIP Dylan -forever in our hearts!You will be greatly missed.I feel like part of my life (those years when we watch all those seasons of 90210 )died with him.

  77. Sayrah says:

    So sad to hear this news.

  78. Catmom says:

    This can’t be real. This one has me shook. RIP

  79. Loretta says:

    This is so sad, he was my first celebrity crush. I loved Beverly Hills 90210 and Dylan McKay was so iconic . RIP Luke.

  80. Spicecake38 says:

    Luke was from small town Ohio, and I’m an Ohio girl.I know some people from college and work who knew him back in the day,they couldn’t have said kinder things about him.He was a small town boy who made it big,but never forget where he came from.Prayers to his family and friends .

  81. liriel says:

    I’m so sad! I also watch Riverdale, watched 90210 after it ended. How can I not see him anymore? Dylan was so sexy!
    Luke was such a lovely guy, seriously everyone loved him.
    So sudden and sad!

  82. greenmonster says:

    The outpouring of love and condolences on Twitter and Instagram by so many people and tons of celebrities are incredible. Luke was genuinely liked and loved by people. And thank you Celebitchy, for giving him his own thread today.

    • liriel says:

      Yeah it really shows how great he was. He also handled being the sex symbol and then kind of disappearing from the limelight which was a huge pity with such grace!

    • liriel says:

      Exactly! Women were screaming, there was hysteria around him. His pictures behind bed. He was HUGE! very humble!

  83. Raina says:

    This saddened me greatly. Such a great guy, honestly. ALWAYS heard good things.
    It’s always hardest on those we eventually leave behind so Bless their healing process.
    God speed Luke you seemed like a genuine gentleman and wonderful talent.

  84. Pixie says:

    Keith Flint and now Luke!! Nooooo this news is devastating. My childhood crush. So sad.

  85. Dee says:

    Really shocking and sad.

  86. carol lindsey says:

    That’s so sad – 52 is pretty young to die of a stroke – he had probably at least 20 + more years on this earth 🙁

  87. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    So so sad. Loved him in 90210 and loved him even more in 8 Seconds. You will be missed.

  88. Adrien says:

    52 is young. Rest in Peace, Luke. Dylan Mckay was the best heartthrob ever. If the world was fair you should have been the bigger star than Jared Leto. You were the 90s James Dean.

    He was a good guy. I still remember that viral fan photo op where he looked so patient. I never heard a bad thing about him.

  89. mulligan27 says:

    Speculating: somewhat unusual to have a fatal stroke at 52. Ruptured aneurysm?

  90. Dee Kay says:

    Oh my God. I am so sad about this. I didn’t ever watch 90210 but I watch Riverdale regularly and am a big fan of Luke Perry’s because of that show. He did such a great job with a supporting role as Archie’s dad and I have found every single scene that Perry and KJ Apa have together as father and son to be sincerely moving. Man. Luke Perry, you will be missed.

  91. Scootypuffjr2 says:

    They always say the good die young. What an incredible legacy he’s left behind, that he was just an all-around good guy and touched so many hearts. Rest In Peace, man.

  92. Guest says:

    I heard of his passing on my way home. I didn’t know him but when I heard it I felt it so deeply. I watched him on Beverly Hills 90210 every week, loved him on that show! Rest In Peace Luke Perry!

  93. Bunny says:

    So terribly sad. Heartbreaking. 💔

  94. JByrdKU says:

    I’m genuinely sad about this. I was too young to get into Beverly Hills 90210, but I do remember when it premiered, and saw that same culture in my older siblings…bummer.

  95. Abby says:

    Makes me so sad! I didn’t watch 90210, but he’ll forever be Lane Frost from 8 seconds. The bull rider that was killed too soon. I loved him! This makes me so sad.

  96. Ash says:

    I am a loyal reader but have not commented in years but this has shook me to my core and gutted me. It has also brought a lot of nostalgia for me and certainly countless others across the country. His sudden and untimely passing is very hard to fathom and accept. Being in my early thirties, it also brings about thoughts of my own mortality. My babysitter and family friend while growing up, (who is more like family to me still to this day) was a diehard 90210 fan. Naturally I looked up to her so when I was old enough, I would watch the reruns religiously (and sneak in views when she watched if I could get away with it because it had always peaked my curiosity.)
    I instantly loved Dylan Mckay. I’ll never forget the image of him on his motorcycle, wearing a leather jacket and jeans, with his slicked back hair and a cigarette hanging out of his mouth and thinking he was a bad boy only to soon realize he was actually one of the good guys. When I think back, he was probably a first of my celebrity crushes. He had an aura and presence about him that was undeniable and that will always be the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of him. He will never be forgotten as he was part of the phenomena of the 90’s. He is an icon to say the least who I am sure will continue to transcend generations. My thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones, his family and friends and I pray for his soul to rest peacefully and may he soar with his wings amongst the angels above. Some people you can just feel are good souls and have amazing hearts and gracious, kind spirits. He was one of those people without question. He will always be remembered not only for the roles he played in so many people’s youth and beyond but also the lasting memories he created that will live on for much longer than most of us. More importantly, for who he was as a person, a genuine and good guy who lived a life of intense fame but remained grounded and true to his roots. May we all fondly remember someone as special as Luke Perry with both respect and admiration for who he was on and off screen. I know I will.

  97. intheknow says:

    I am crying. Never met the man and I am crying. My brother had a massive stroke when he was 23 yrs old. Not overweight, non smoker. Nothing. We never found out why/cause. He lived but the damage was done.

    Very frightening and sad.

  98. titi says:

    my heart is broken. RIP.

    I’m too young for 90210, but I loved him on Riverdale. His character on the show (until recently anyway) was one of the few decent parents. I’m so sad. :/

    I am in complete shock. Grew up watching 90210… RIP :'(

    I’m still having trouble processing this. I don’t think I’ve ever been this upset over the loss of a celebrity.

    I thought I was gutted over David Bowie but I swear this one hurts even more.

    So devastating. I was a huge fan of 90210 and he was fantastic on it. He seemed like such a wonderful man off screen. Kelly/Dylan were the first TV couple that I shipped and I loved their close friendship off screen. I’m sure the cast is beside themselves. I hope that silly reboot gets scrapped…
