Friends and former costars are remembering Luke Perry on what would have been the late actor’s 54th birthday.

Perry, who died in March 2019 following a massive stroke, was universally loved in the industry, and the outpouring of love on social media in his honour reflected that.

Jennie Garth, who played Perry’s longtime love interest Kelly Taylor on Beverly Hills, 90210, shared an intimate black-and-white photo of herself with him. “Forever in my heart,” wrote Garth.

Tori Spelling, another former 90210 co-star, shared how grateful she is that Perry was able to meet her son Beau before his passing.

“Thinking about him and missing him,” she wrote. “But, that’s every day. So grateful he got to meet my littlest Beau and snuggle him when he was a babe.”

Brian Austin Green, who played David Silver on the hit series, posted a throwback photo of himself and Perry on the beach from the show’s heyday.

“Happy Birthday brother!!” he wrote. “Love you.”

In other 90210 news, Garth and Spelling made headlines recently when they responded to Jessica Alba’s claims of bad behaviour on the hit show’s set back when she made an appearance in 1998.

Alba said while filming two episodes of series, she was prohibited from making eye contact with the show’s stars.

In a promo for Garth and Spelling’s new podcast, 9021OMG, the actresses struggled to remember any such incident.
