Jason Priestley Pays Tribute to '90210' Co-Star Luke Perry

Jason Priestley is remembering his Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star Luke Perry after his tragic death on Monday (March 4) at the age of 52 from a massive stroke.

The 49-year-old actor posted a touching tribute on his Instagram account.

“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…,” Jason wrote.

He continued, “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.”

Beverly Hills, 90210 was on the air from 1990-2000.
