When I was lucky enough to work with Luke Perry I told him about the pillow of his face I used to sleep with and he yelled "You are such a weirdo!" at me and it was the best. Sending love to his friends and family.
The 90’s took a hit today. So fucking awful. Luke Perry and Keith Flint of Prodigy. Two icons that were apart of my life growing up. Never met either of them but only heard great things about both. Rest In Peace. You made so many people happy. 🙏 ❤️
The first time I met Luke Perry we talked about what kind of movie we wanted “Buffy” to be. I asked if he’d ever seen “Near Dark” and he gave me a look of HOW DARE YOU SIR and I knew we’d get along. Funny, committed, and always gracious. He shouldn’t be gone.
I had the pleasure and honor of meeting Mr. Luke Perry many times, most recently this past October in NYC. Devastated to hear the news. A piece of our childhood gone. But never forgotten. Love going out to his family, friends, fans, and co-stars and co-workers. RIP Luke 😇 💕 pic.twitter.com/43dUDFYNfc
Crushed. Luke Perry was truly a great guy. Warm, kind, generous and hard working. We met very young, I witnessed the grace with which he became a pop icon & parent. He’s been an awesome example of how to stay decent in a swirl of crazy. Love to his family❤️ https://t.co/bGlTX8mNbB
