Riverdale Fred Andrews Star Luke Perry Sadly Suffered A Huge Stroke Yesterday Morning
Hey, Riverdale fans. We’ve got some major sad news for you guys in regards to actor Luke Perry who plays character Fred Andrews on CW’s hit drama Riverdale. According to the folks over TMZ, People.com and all the other major news outlets, poor Luke Perry is currently in the hospital right now due to him suffering a what TMZ is calling a massive stroke!
They say it happened early yesterday morning, Wednesday February 28, 2019 at Luke’s home in Sherman Oaks, California. The Paramedics responded at around 9:40 am. A call came into the fire department for someone suffering from a stroke. They go on to say that Luke was immediately taken to a nearby hospital. At the time TMZ reported this news, they said Luke’s condition is not yet known.
In their article, TMZ pointed out that Luke had been recently filming new episodes of Riverdale in Los Angeles, California on the Warner Bros. lot. Riverdale’s main set is located in Vancouver. They also say his stroke occurred on the very same day that FOX announced they’re rebooting Beverly Hills 90210, which is the show that originally made Luke Perry famous.
Luke played the character Dylan McKay on that show back in the early 1990s. TMZ pointed out that his former costars: Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Jason Priestly, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling and Gabrielle Carter have all signed on to do the new Beverly Hills 90201 reboot. Luke Perry currently has not signed on to do it.
We were able to get some additional intel for Luke Perry’s stroke condition from the folks over at People.com. They were able to speak to a representative for Luke. The rep told them that Luke is currently under observation stating, “Mr. Perry is currently under observation at the hospital.”
USA Today provided some additional details about the call that came into the Fire Department. A spokesman for the Fire Department Brian Humphrey said a call came in from the neighborhood of Sherman Oaks at 9:39 am Pacific Standard time yesterday, February 27, 2019, and an ambulance transported one person to a local hospital. Brian Humphrey could not identify the patient by name.
TMZ and The Blast reportedly published audio clips from the 911 call. During that call, the patient’s blood pressure was given, and the word “stroke” was yelled out.
USA Today also provided some additional details about the Beverly Hills 90210 reboot that FOX is attempting. Apparently,FOX is going to reunite the original cast for a six-episode summer event series. Again, Luke has not signed on to do it yet. I think fighting for his life is a little more important right now. Hopefully, we’ll hear some good news about Luke’s condition as this story continues to develop.
Alright guys. That’s all we’ve got for this very sad Riverdale report, but definitely stay tuned for more.
