Shannen Doherty Reveals How Luke Perry Encouraged Her to Join 'BH90210'

Shannen Doherty had a special reason she decided to sign on for BH90210.

The 48-year-old actress recently revealed that she joined the Beverly Hills 90292 reunion series to honor the late Luke Perry.

“I wasn’t attached [before Luke’s death]…and it wasn’t long after he passed that I finally was like, ‘OK, yes,’” Shannen told ET.

She continued, “For me, I felt like it was honoring him and his memory and what he meant to the audience and the fans and to all of us. As his on-set family, I felt like it was an important time for all of us to come together to honor him.”

Shannen added that the series will definitely address Luke‘s absence, saying, “The first episode very much deals with it. Luke was such a sort of quiet, subtle, yet dynamic human being that he had a very strong and lasting impact on people. So, naturally, we would have to deal with it.”

Shannen is also set to honor Luke in upcoming episodes of Riverdale. Get the details.

It was this strange burst of excitement that I had, to be able to act with him. Man, he was so incredibly humble and amazing and absolutely committed. He couldn’t have been a more friendly, wonderful guy to spend time with. I got to sit down and have some wonderful conversations with him. It was really special.”
