A beautiful tribute that honors the small, quiet moments of Luke Perry.
By now, you’re aware that Luke Perry died in the hospital on March 4th following a critical stroke. Fans and colleagues are devastated and have turned to the internet to share their thoughts and memories. All of those messages and moments are special but it’s the video at the bottom of this post that stands out to me the most.
The death of 52 year old Luke Perry hit hard, particularly for fans of the long-running teen drama, Beverly Hills, 90210. Back in the 1990s, teen soaps didn’t exist on television. The original 90210 was the first of its kind and ushered in an era of television. It is because of Tori Spelling, Jason Priestley, Shannon Doherty, Luke Perry, and others that networks like The CW and Freeform exist. Luke Perry was a heartthrob for an entire generation and when he died, it felt as if an old friend had died.
In the following short video, small moments were captured of Luke Perry while filming the movie The Beat Beneath My Feet. These are the kind of moments that seem everyday and real. Watch the brief but beautiful and honest tribute to the 90210 and Riverdale star below:
