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 honor 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.”

Green also shared the last photo Perry sent him — which Green says is the lock screen on his phone.

“This has been a really hard day but you positively touched everyone you ever met,” he wrote.

Ian Ziering shared a shot of the core four male stars from Beverly Hills, 90210, writing, “All brothers from different mothers. Happy birthday LP, RIP.”

In addition to his 90210 co-stars, Perry’s more recent colleagues reflected on their time with him.

Madelaine Petsch, who appeared opposite Perry on Riverdale, posted a touching photo of the two chatting. (While the actress wished him a “Happy 53rd birthday,” Perry would have been turning 54.)

In other 90210 news, Garth and Spelling made headlines recently when they responded to Jessica Alba’s claims of bad behavior 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.
