Luke Perry’s 90210 family reunited

Actor Brian Austin Green, who played David Silver on Beverly Hills, 90210, recently shared the details of the cast reunion in honor of Perry that took place at Gabrielle Carteris’ home (Andrea Zuckerman on 90210).

The reunion was filled with joy and grief, Green explained during his …With Brian Austin Green podcast, noting: “[I saw] people I hadn’t seen in at least 18 years, at least. It was very mixed emotions because you were happy to see everybody and you felt like, ‘God, it’s been so long’ … but what a horrible reason to have to see everybody again.”

He added: “It was definitely interesting, it had its fun, funny, like, laugh times and then it had its moments of … I don’t fully know what to say. I totally don’t believe it. I don’t fully believe Luke is gone. Luke has been in my life a long time and we had a really special relationship and I’m learning now that Luke really had a special relationship with everyone… He was a great human being.”

Brian Austin Green called Perry ‘a great guy’

Perry’s loss was significant, Green explained, sharing he “was a special guy” and noting how he “was one of those people that nobody had a bad story about. He was just a great guy.”

He added: “And he was Luke no matter where you saw him, no matter when you saw him, no matter what he was going through. He was a rock. I’m extremely lucky to have had him in my life. He really is a great guy and he’ll be missed.”

Jason Priestly paid tribute on social media

While some of Perry’s 90210 co-stars shared their thoughts on social media when he passed away, it took co-star Jason Priestly a few days before he could articulate about the loss.

He eventually shared on Instagram: “It’s taken me a couple of days to figure out how to write this… My dear friend of 29 years, Luke Perry, was one of those truly special people who really cared… Luke was not only a star, he was an incredibly bright light that was extinguished far too soon… and that is why I, and so many others, are in so much pain today… If you had the good fortune to know Luke, or to have ever crossed his path, I know you are sad today as well… the candle that burns twice as bright only burns for half as long… you burned oh, so brightly Luke… Goodnight Sweet Prince.”

Shannen Doherty shared her grief on social media as well

Perry’s co-star, Shannen Doherty, also took a bit of time before publicly responding to the loss of her friend, eventually writing on Instagram: “Yesterday morning I got a phone call that devastated me. I’m struggling with this loss and am having a hard time with my thoughts. But, my heart goes out to his family and friends who were blessed by his light in their (and mine) lives. Processing this is impossible right now.”
