Shannen Doherty remembers former Beverly Hills 90210 castmate and friend, Luke Perry, saying, "When he heard that I had cancer he reached out to me and it meant a lot to me... he reached out to me and our sort of love for one another, it was always sort of there. There's something special, still, between the two of us." Doherty went on to share of the "Riverdale" tribute episode to Perry, "The care that [the show] takes in honoring Luke, not just his character, but him. There's so much of Luke in that show and in that character. They really took time with it. It's just beautiful." On reuniting with her Beverly Hills 90210 cast in the recent reboot Doherty explains, "We all had our own relationship with Luke... there were all these moments when we looked at each other and we're like, 'Ya, we're missing [Luke] ... It just never felt 100% complete without him, for me, personally."
