Luke Perry was never responsive after suffering a massive stroke on February 27, a source revealed.


‘The Beverly Hills’ star passed away on Monday, five days after he was admitted to hospital, and never woke. Doctors said he was "heavely sedated".

“He never regained consciousness. Things were so dire that they put him under heavy sedation. He was gone, basically, by the time he got to the hospital," the source shared.

Perry was at his Sherman Oaks home when he suffered the stroke. He was transported to a nearby hospital after paramedics responded, as reported by TMZ.


According to a statement from Perry’s rep, he was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancé 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 during the time of his death.

Meanwhile, the production of ‘Riverdale’ has been temporarily suspended. Perry had a starring role as ‘Fred Andrew’ in the popular American Drama Series.


Riverdale’s official Instagram page posted a snap of a statement from Riverdale’s executive producers, Warner Bros., and The CW.


Perry shot to stardom after playing ‘Dylan McKay’ on the 90s hit TV series “Beverly Hills 90210”. He has a stroke on the same day Fox announced that “Beverly Hills 90210” would revive.


Although Perry was not involved in the new project, his former Beverly Hills co-stars Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green, Jennie Garth, Gabrielle Carteris, and Tori Spelling have their roles in the series.

Perry’s untimely demise is a grim reminder that stroke is the fifth major cause of death in the United States. Each year, approximately 142,000 people suffer from stroke while many are left disabled due to it.
