BURBANK, Calif. – Actor Luke Perry has died after suffering a massive stroke.

Perry, 52, died Monday morning at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank, according to TMZ.

Perry, best known for roles on Beverly Hills, 90210 and Riverdale, was rushed to the hospital last Wednesday after suffering a stroke at his home in Sherman Oaks.

Perry rose to fame as Dylan McKay on 90210. While a reboot of the show was announced just last week, Perry had not yet signed on due to scheduling conflicts with Riverdale.

According to his publicist, Luke was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiance 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.

No other details have been released.
