The unforgettable Dylan McKay had a STROKE last February 27.
We had had no news since the announcement of his severe stroke on the 27th of February last. Unfortunately, the dark new that would all of Hollywood was dropped like a bombshell on Monday evening : Luke Perry is dead. He was 52 years old.
The actor cult of Beverly Hills has been one of the icons of youth, in the heart of the 1990s, in the skin of Dylan McKay, the dark deceiver of the 90210. A role he played for 199 episodes. But the career of Perry on the television had started in the late 1980s, with appearances in the soap opera Another World.
The return of Beverly Hills confirmed, 6 episodes coming this summer !
In recent years, we had been able to see the actor in the series prison Oz, but also the dramas Body of Proof and Major Crimes, and more recently in the teen drama of the moment, and Riverdale, where he played Fred Andrews, the father of the hero Archie. It was also in the process of turning episodes of season 3.
According to a spokesperson of Riverdale, as quoted by american website TMZ, Luke Perry was surrounded by his fiancée Wendy Madison Bauer, his ex-wife Minnie Sharp, and his children Jack and Sophie, at the time of his death.
Let us recall that the STROKE suffered by the star – sad irony – the same day as the american channel Fox announced the return of Beverly Hills, via a mini-series, “meta” of six episodes in which Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Jason Priestley, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling and Gabrielle Carteris will play their own role. Luke Perry had not been able to commit to this project, but was still hoped in some episodes as guest stars. We imagine that this revival of Beverly Hills will have a flavour of the weak special now.
