Beverly Hills 90210 actor Luke Perry has died at the age of 52, TMZ reports.
The US title writes that Luke passed away on Monday morning at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank.
His publicist confirmed that the star passed away surrounded by loved ones – his children Jack and Sophie, fiancée Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder, and other close family and friends.
The rep said: “The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world.
“No further details will be released at this time.”
The actor was hospitalised last week after suffering a massive stroke.
Luke had the attack at his Los Angeles home on Wednesday (27 February).
Paramedics were called to his house in Sherman Oaks in California at around 9.40am.
TMZ broke the news of the actor’s medical emergency.
Luke most recently starred in US drama Riverdale, playing the role of Frank Andrews.
He was best known for the character of Dylan McKay in hit nineties show Beverly Hills 90210.
He was a worshipped heartthrob in the role, which he played from 1990 to 1995, and again between 1998 and 2000.
