Carol Potter, who played Mrs. Walsh on 90210 paid tribute to the star and his pet pig. “In honor of Luke I have given up eating pork, in its many varied forms, for Lent. Pigs are very intelligent animals and Luke often brought his sweetie to the set. Anyone want to join me?”

90210 stars were not the only ones who remembered their friend. Both Molly Ringwald and Marisol Nichols from Riverdale sent love to their late friend.

“I can’t believe it’s been a year since we lost this beautiful soul. Your presence is felt and you are missed every day, my friend. ❤️,” Molly wrote alongside a black and white photo of Luke.

“One year ago. Missing this incredible being, it goes without saying we lost him too soon. Took this shot off the screen from our photo shoot for S2. He loved playing Fred Andrews, a genuinely good, honorable, caring dad and a stand up guy. And because that was who Luke was he imbued his character with all of himself and we loved him for it. ❤️💔,” shared Marisol.

R.I.P. Luke.
