Remembering Luke Perry
lost an icon this week. At just 52 years old, Luke
Perry passed away on Monday, March 4. This devastating
news comes just days after the long-time actor suffered a massive
stroke last Wednesday.
Everything seemed to come full circle in 2017, when Perry traded in his own high school hottie role and became the father of the current day teen heartthrob, Archie Andrews. Being able to go from Teen Dream to Dreamy Dad is quite a feat that not many actors other than Luke Perry could pull off.
It was thanks to "Riverdale" that we at Young Hollywood got to know the charismatic actor, who epitomizes our motto "It's not about age, it's about attitude!"
Losing a guy like Perry has struck so many people, including his co-stars.
I’m finding it hard to grasp that he will no longer be around to give long hugs and share his wisdom and kindness with all of us.— Lili Reinhart (@lilireinhart) March 4, 2019
I’m thinking of his family. His children.
I pray for them to heal and find peace in this devastating loss.
My heart is broken. I will miss you so much Luke Perry. Sending all my love to your family. â¤ï¸ #LukePerry— Molly Ringwald (@MollyRingwald) March 4, 2019
Young Hollywood is deeply saddened by this news. Luke Perry was a true class act and will be remembered by many for his on-screen impact, and more importantly, his off-screen one as well. Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this sad time.
