(CMR) American actor Luke Perry has passed away this morning at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank, California.
Numerous online sources have indicated that the iconic 90210 actors died after what is having a massive stroke on Wednesday.
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.
Luke had a prolific acting career on TV and in movies — getting his start in the early ’80s — and became a household name on ‘90210.’ After that, his career exploded. Most recently he’s had a starring role as Archie’s dad on CW’s hit show, “Riverdale.”
He also filmed a role in Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming Charles Manson movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
