BURBANK — Actor Luke Perry has died at the age of 52, according to his publicist.
Perry had suffered a stroke on Thursday in Sherman Oaks.
Perry is perhaps best known for starring as Dylan McKay in “Beverly Hills, 90210” for 10 seasons from 1990 to 2000. He more recently appeared in the CW series “Riverdale” as Archie Andrews’ father.
A reboot of “90210” was announced the same day as Perry’s stroke. TMZ reports Perry had not signed on to be a series regular but was to appear as a guest star.
Perry died surrounded by his family, his publicist said:
“Actor Luke Perry, 52, passed away today after suffering a massive stroke. He was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancé 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. The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning. No further details will be released at this time.”
