Riverdale star Luke Perry passed away Monday morning after suffering a "massive" stroke last Wednesday. The actor was 52.
"He was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancé 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," Perry's rep Arnold Robinson told The Hollywood Reporter. "The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning. No further details will be released at this time."
Perry has starred in The CW's Archie Comics adaptation Riverdale as Archie's beloved father Fred Andrews since the series premiere. Since his wife Mary (Molly Ringwald) left to pursue a career in Chicago, Fred has acted as his son's sole guardian, guiding him through the trials and tribulations of life in the not-so-peppy town.
Perry is perhaps best known for his role as Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills, 90210. His long list of past credits includes The Fifth Element, Body of Proofand Oz, among many others. He also voiced Rick Jones in 1996's The Incredible Hulk animated series as well as Sub-Zero in Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm.
