RIP Luke Perry.
Luke Perry, star of such generation-defining works as Beverly Hills 90210, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and most recently, Riverdale, the dark-tone Archie Comics adaptation on The CW, died on Monday morning from complications after he suffered a stroke.
Perry has been an icon of teen television for close to 30 years, with his career beginning in the early '90s with 90210.
He has been mourned across the board by co-stars and colleagues alike.
He left an impact on so many.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the lead writer on Riverdale, has spoken up to say that Perry's memory will be honored in every episode from hereon out.
"Going through pictures on my way to set. From the early days. With Luke in the middle. Our heart, always," he wrote on Instagram. "Tonight's episode of #Riverdale finds Fred doing what he does best―helping Archie. It is dedicated to Luke, as all episodes will be for the rest of our run. ❤️"
Others on the show spoke to how Perry was a "father figure" and "mentor" to the younger members of the cast.
"Luke was everything you would hope he would be: an incredibly caring, consummate professional with a giant heart, and a true friend to all," executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater and Aguirre-Sacasa said in a statement after his death.
"Luke was incredibly generous, and he infused the set with love and kindness. Our thoughts are with Luke's family during this most difficult time."
We are all having a hard time processing Perry's death.
