Last calendar year, Luke’s passing came as a shock to everybody. He had been just 52 years old when he passed away.
Back in March 2019, the Riverdale performer’s rep confirmed his departure. “The family loves the outpouring of prayers and support which were stretched to Luke from all over the planet, and respectfully petition solitude in this period of terrific mourning,” his representative explained in an announcement to E! News. “No further information will be published at this moment.”
Also, Riverdale executive manufacturers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Jon Goldwater, combined with Warner Bros.. Television along with the CW, issued a statement after the celebrity’s death.
“We’re profoundly saddened to learn about the departure of Luke Perry,” a statement at the moment. “A dear member of the Riverdale, Warner Bros. and CW household, Luke was what you’d expect he’d be: a very affectionate, consummate practitioner with a giant heart, and a real friend to all. A father figure and mentor into the show’s youthful cast, Luke was unbelievably generous, and he awakened the group with kindness and love. All our thoughts are with Luke’s family during this difficult moment.”
