The actor was hospitalized last week after reportedly suffering a stroke in his home.

Friends of Perry took to Twitter to remember the actor, with Ian Ziering, who starred opposite Luke for ten years on their iconic 90s high school show, wrote: 'Dearest Luke, I will forever bask in the loving memories we've shared over the last thirty years.

However, Luke sadly passed away Monday morning at St. Joseph's Hospital in Burbank. "No further details will be released at this time", the statement said.

The filming saw Perry return to Vancouver a number of times in recent years, leading to some memorable meetings.

The world has been expressing an outpouring of condolences following the death of Beverly Hills, 90210 and Riverdale star Luke Perry, and one of his children is thanking everyone for their kind words.

He had roles in a handful of films, including "The Fifth Element", "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "8 Seconds" and "American Strays", appeared in HBO's prison drama "Oz" as a televangelist convicted of fraud, and voiced cartoons including "The Incredible Hulk" and "Mortal Kombat". I share my deep sadness with his family and all who loved him.

Instead, it can be expected a special episode will be dedicated to Luke Perry and the legacy he left behind that affected the cast as well as fans.

Colin Hanks , Fargo actor and son of Tom Hanks, detailed a particularly impressive encounter with the Beverly Hills 90210 star. Perry, who was born and raised in OH , was previously married to Sharp - with whom he had both children - from 1993 to 2003.

In addition to his work in television, Luke also filmed a role in the upcoming Quentin Tarantino film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which is set in Los Angeles around the time of the Manson Family murders.

Leslie Grossman, who worked with Perry on the show What I Like About You, shared her own humorous encounter with the actor.

In the wake of actor Luke Perry's death, fans have taken to commenting on a sweet throwback photo of him and his daughter, Sophie, before she attended her prom dance past year.

Perry's Riverdale co-stars were among those to pay tribute.

"My old man and I are truly such fashion icons... My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his loved ones". "I pray for them to heal and find peace in this devastating loss". I say. He tells me he always flies with a couple of balloons for that very reason, to give to screaming kids.

Scroll on to see how the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Lili Reinhart, Molly Ringwald, Olivia Munn and his numerous co-stars and colleagues paid tribute to the beloved actor, below.

He leaves his children, Jack and Sophie, from his first marriage to Rachel Minnie Sharp. It was not public knowledge that he was even engaged to Wendy Madison Bauer until news of his death was confirmed.
