Luke Perry, the star of hit television shows like “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “Riverdale,” and movies such as “8 Seconds,” which tells the heartbreaking story of bull rider Lane Frost, has reportedly been admitted into a Los Angeles area hospital after suffering a stroke on February 27.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the L.A. Fire Department responded to a call on Wednesday for medical assistance.

Luke, who is 52-years-old, is currently said to be under observation. The news comes hot on the heels of an announcement that same day that Fox would resurrect the hit coming-of-age series, “Beverly Hills, 90210.” And although Luke played the role of perceived bad boy Dylan McKay, it doesn’t appear that he is currently part of the revival. Six of his former co-stars, including Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, and Tori Spelling, are confirmed to return to the show.

In his time since “90210,” Luke has done a considerable amount of acting, including voice-over work and Broadway where he played Brad Majors in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” and Harry in the live production of “When Harry Met Sally.”

In 2015, Luke became an advocate for colorectal cancer awareness and research after pre- cancerous growths were discovered during a colonoscopy.

One Country sends warm thoughts and healing wishes to Luke, and to his two children—Jack and Sophie.
