Actor Luke Perry’s Beverly Hills 90210 casemates like the rest of the world are reeling at the fact that the former teen-hearthrob who rose to fame as Dylan McKay on the hit FOX show died Monday after suffering a stroke late last week.

As we reported earlier this week, Perry, 52, suffered a stroke on February 28, at his home in Sherman Oaks, California.  He was rushed to the hospital where he suffered a reported second stroke.  He passed away Monday  March 4, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank. He was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiance 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.

As news of his death broke, fans and some of his ‘90210’ co-stars began to pay touching tributes to Perry on social media.

Ian Ziering, 54, better known for his role as Steve Sanders in the 90’s hit drama had these words:

“Dearest Luke,

I will forever bask in the loving memories we’ve shared over the last thirty years. May your journey forward be enriched by the magnificent souls who have passed before you, just like you have done here for those you leave behind. God please give him a seat close to to you, he deserves it.”

Prime time love interest and real-life great friend Shannon Doherty, 47, called the loss “devastating” and admitted she is “struggling” after hearing the news.

“Yesterday morning I got a phone call that devastated me,” she wrote.  “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.”

Tiffanie Theissen, 45, know as the ‘bad girl’ on 90210 or Valerie Malone, credited Perry for taking her “under his wing,” when she was new to a show in it’s 4th year.

“My heart has been weighing heavy. The loss of a man who started as my co-star but quickly became my friend,” she began.

“He welcomed me on my very first day of #90210 with open arms. A day that was not an easy one for me. I was coming in to a show, a family really, that had been together for over 4 years. But this man took me under his wing and made me feel at home. Made me feel like I belonged in his TV family. He was sincere, sweet, warm, kind, professional and funny as all heck. And most of all, the definition of a gentleman. Luke, our world has a hole in it now that you aren’t here. But heaven definitely gained you as an angel. #RIP#LukePerry #gonetoosoon”

Actor Jason Priestly also spoke out about his late friend, whom he called his “dearest friend of 29 years.”

“It’s taken me a couple of days to figure out how to write this… ” his statement began.

“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.”
