Luke Perry from 90210

Description:
A photo of Luke Perry, born Coy Luther Perry III in Mansfield, OH on October 11, 1966. His father was a steelworker and his mother was a homemaker.

He said that he auditioned for 256 jobs before getting his first acting job on soaps - one episode on "Loving" and 10 episodes on "Another World". He also appeared in a music video for Twisted Sister.

From 1990 - 1994, he starred as Dylan McKay on "Beverley Hills, 90210" - his breakout and perhaps best known role - and became a teen heartthrob. At one autograph session, 10,000 girls created a riot and he was forced to leave after 90 seconds!

Leaving "90210" in 1995 because he wanted "more mature roles,” Luke worked in a number of films before returning to the series in 1998 - 2000. For the remainder of his career he worked in films, tv, and stage. In 2017, he took the role of Fred Andrews on the tv series "Riverdale."

Personal life: Luke was married to Rachel Sharp from 1993 - 2003. They had two children. (Their son Jack is a professional wrestler.) On February 27, 2019 Luke had a massive stroke and died days later, at age 52, from complications due to the stroke.

From the son of a steelworker to teenage heartthrob to playing a father on tv, Luke Perry packed a lot into one short life. RIP Luke.
