Publicist for Beverly Hills, 90210 star Luke Perry says the actor has been hospitalized. Perry suffered a “massive”stroke on Wednesday and has since been sedated.
Paramedics were called out to the Riverdale actor’s house around 09:39 in response to an unspecified medical request. Perry was transported to a nearby hospital.
Publicist Arnold Robinson said that the 52-year-old actor is “currently under observation” at the hospital.
After news broke, Perry’s co-stars took to social media to share well wishes for the actor, who rose to fame as Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills, 90210.
“My friend. Holding you tight and giving you my strength,” Shannen Doherty wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of them from the 90s TV series.
Ian Ziering shared a black and white photo of him and Perry as youngsters, writing: “No words can express what my heart feels hearing today’s shocking news. Let us all say a prayer for his speedy recovery.”
Sending my love to Luke Perry. ❤️

Wishing all the best and a safe recovery for Luke Perry. I only barely met and worked with him, but he seems as good a man as you encounter. https://t.co/Xp9VYvH4Iw
