On Wednesday, actor Luke Perry was taken to the hospital after suffering a massive stroke in his home in Sherman Oaks, California.

Sadly, he died on Monday at the age of 52 at St. Joseph's Hospital in Burbank.

Perry's rep told TMZ the actor was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancée Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry and sister Amy Coder, along with other close friends and members of the family.

Perry recently played Archie Andrews' father, Fred Andrews, in the CW's popular mystery drama Riverdale, loosely based on the Archie comics, .

Fans, however, will always remember Perry as the rebellious heartthrob Dylan McKay from the 1990s teen drama series Beverly Hills 90210, which aired from October 4, 1990 to May 17, 2000.


In honor of his legacy, fans paid tribute by revisiting the iconic 90210 idol whose likeness wallpapered many a teen's bedroom nearly three decades ago.

Dylan McKay was the epitome of cool, and so was the man behind those Ray-Bans.



With all due respect, Paul Newman in 1967's Cool Hand Luke was coolness personified, but, for now, Paul Who-man?






Dylan McKay made brooding sexy, and few other actors could pull that off so effortlessly.






Perry's 90210 co-star Gabrielle Carteris, who played Andrea Zuckerman, was "absolutely heartbroken" and described her late friend as a "tremendous force" in an emotional statement.

"I am absolutely heartbroken. Luke was a tremendous force in the lives of so many. He was a very sensitive soul who was kind, generous and he fought for the underdog."
"He was a strong voice and an advocate who will be so missed by all who knew him. He has left his mark – never to be forgotten. My heart goes out to his family, friends and fans around the globe."

Another 90210 alum, Ian Zeiring who played Steve Sanders, tweeted his heartfelt sendoff to a buddy who was gone too soon.

"Dearest Luke, 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."



R.I.P., Luke Perry. You will be missed.

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
