His reps said doctors had sedated Luke, hoping to give his brain a fighting chance to recover from the trauma of the stroke ... but apparently, the damage was too extensive. 

Born in Mansfield, Ohio ... Luke had a prolific acting career on TV and in movies -- getting his start in the early '80s -- and became a household name on '90210.' After that, his career exploded. Most recently he's had a starring role as Archie's dad on CW's hit show, "Riverdale." 

He also filmed a role in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Charles Manson movie, "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood."

Was reading about Keith Flint's death when this was on the side of the page.  I believe they were in the works of doing a 90210 reboot with all the original cast.  Tragic, 52 is far too young.  RIP.

Except Luke Perry. He was tied up with his role in Riverdale filmed in Van. 

 

That show brought him and Skeet Ulrich back into doing some decent work.  

 

RIP Luke.  I am sure it was a hell of a ride.

Horrible news, far too young.  Strokes are horrible...my Mom had one at 52 years old.  

 

May he RIP...sad that it wasn't something he could survive but a blessing that he didn't suffer for too long.  I hope his family can find some comfort at this difficult time.

Didn't see much of his work after 90210, but he was he was a somewhat regular on a radio morning show that uses to be on here. Sounded like a nice and interesting guy, and always enjoyed it when he was on.

 

Damn, 52... hitting too close to home for my liking.  So sad.

Had a minor stroke at 48.

Makes me grateful, I've had no long term effects.

Condolences to his family and friends.

I hit 52 on Thursday.

So this strikes a nerve.

If you have a few bucks, or time to spare. BC Heart and Stroke Foundation for a good cause.

Or even education for the signs of a stroke. (Which I didn't have, just dizziness).

There is no age requirement for a stroke.  It’s a myth that it only affects “old people”.  Everyone, look up “FAST” (re: signs to look for in regards to strokes).  Don’t forget to make regular/annual visits to you GP (doctor).  Life is short enough as it is.

Aspirin right away. May not help with the current stroke but reduces the likelihood of another more severe stroke in the next few days.

"

Chalk another one up for aspirin: Researchers have concluded that giving aspirin to stroke victims as soon as they arrive at the hospital reduces their risk of having a second stroke.

In the first few days after having a stroke, patients are at high risk of having another one, says Richard Peto, a professor at Oxford University and co-author of an analysis published in the journal Stroke. "We found that aspirin didn't do very much for repairing the damage done already by the initial stroke, but ... it reduced the likelihood of having another stroke in the hospital," he tells WebMD.

What's more, he says, it appears to be beneficial to give aspirin to stroke victims right away even if doctors aren't 100% sure which type of stroke the patient has had."

I'm on daily low dosage aspirin.
