Perry, 52, suffered a massive stroke at his home in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles on Wednesday, February 27, Us Weekly has confirmed. A Los Angeles Fire Department spokesperson told Us that paramedics received a 911 call, responded to the actor’s residence around 9:40 a.m. and took him to a nearby hospital.
“Mr. Perry is currently under observation at the hospital,” his representative told Us. The rep also debunked rumors that the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum had been put into a medically induced coma.
Other Riverdale stars sent social media love to their ailing colleague. “Thinking of this amazing man. We love you Luke ❤️🙏🏻,” Marisol Nichols wrote on Instagram. Mädchen Amick added, “Love you Luke.”
“Luke Perry. I’m praying for you,” Hayley Law tweeted. “Asking god to be with you and help you get through this🌹 to help you recover stronger♥️.”
The medical crisis came the same day FOX announced a meta-revival of 90210 with Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Gabrielle Cateris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling playing “heightened versions” of themselves. Perry, who played Dylan McKay on the 1990s drama, will not be a regular on the six-part revival due to his Riverdale commitments, but will “do as many [episodes] as he can do,” Spelling previously told Access Live.
