Right off the bat, Dylan not surprisingly revealed that the cast is very damaged by Luke’s death. He stated, “All I’ll say about that, not being as close with the entire cast, is that I think everyone is expectedly pretty damaged about it. He was an electric soul, and even in the short amount of time that I met him, he had a big impact.
We’re recovering. Yeah, It’s obviously not the easiest thing to talk about, but he was well-loved and there’s been an outpouring of emotional support from people around the world, which just goes to show what a wonderful person he was and how much he impacted people’s lives and impacted our lives. But I know that his family has requested privacy during this period ,and I respect that quite a bit.”

Luke’s former Beverly Hills 90210 main co-star Jason Priestly wrote a very heartfelt tribute to Luke on his Instagram account. It featured a past and recent photo of him posing with Luke. It was accompanied by the following words: “It’s taken me a couple of days to figure out how to write this… My dear friend of 29 years, Luke Perry, was one of those truly special people who really cared… Luke was not only a star, he was an incredibly bright light that was extinguished far too soon… and that is why I, and so many others, are in so much pain today…
If you had the good fortune to know Luke, or to have ever crossed his path, I know you are sad today as well… the candle that burns twice as bright only burns for half as long… you burned oh, so brightly Luke… Goodnight Sweet Prince.” You guys can view that post on Jason Priestly’s official Instagram account by Clicking Here.
