Jennie Garth Shares a ‘Sign’ from Late Co-Star Luke Perry in a Touching New Photo
Jennie Garth, 47, saw a special sign that reminded her of her late co-star, Luke Perry, while shooting for the “Beverly Hills, 90210” revival, which she posted on her Instagram, giving fans goosebumps.
During the filming of “Beverly Hills, 90210’s” revival, Jennie Garth saw a sign that reminded her of her on-screen love interest, Luke Perry’s, presence and guidance. The 47-year-old actress shared the photo on Instagram, which had fans reminiscing on the past while getting goosebumps.
Perry played Dylan McKay on the show from 1990 to 1995, and 1998 to 2000, while Garth took the role of Kelly Taylor on all ten seasons.
Perry’s presence was felt through a street sign beside a stoplight that dear “McKay Rd.,” in Vancouver, Canada, where the cast is currently filming the show’s reboot. Garth posted the photo on Wednesday, along with a short caption that read:
“Sometimes there are just signs…”
The late actor was only 52 years old when he passed away in March after suffering a massive stroke five days before. Garth spoke to PEOPLE about his death following the news, expressing her “deep sadness” for the terrible loss.
“My heart is broken. He meant so much to so many. Such a very special person. I share my deep sadness with his family and all who loved him. Such a terrible loss,” said the actress.
Perry remained in contact with his former co-stars, even texting Tori Spelling and talking to Garth about his daughter, Sophie, a week before his demise. Spelling told PEOPLE that he “adored his kids beyond words.”
The ‘90s show’s revival already began filming with their current location in Canada earlier this week. All original cast members of the hit series will still be on the show, except for Perry.
Garth shared that reuniting with everyone was a feeling of home, and although time has passed, it’s like nothing has changed, especially their relationships with one another.
According to an insider who spoke with ET, Garth, Spelling, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, Shannen Doherty, and Gabrielle Carteris aim to honor Perry in the upcoming series.
“The toughest part is being without Luke because he was the one cast member who held everyone together, the one that had no drama with anyone,” the source said. “Everyone just loved him. The cast keeps talking about all their wonderful memories of Luke.”
THE BIG REUNION
Earlier this month, Fox released a promotional video of the cast’s reunion, where they bonded over laughs and reading scripts, and the set date of the show’s premiere on August 7.
Garth shared that reuniting with everyone was a feeling of home, and although time has passed, it’s like nothing has changed, especially their relationships with one another. She said:
"Now, each of us having gone out and worked independently and done various different projects over the years, we realize [Beverly Hills, 90210] was like lightning in a bottle. Now, coming back together, we all realize that and it's a good thing to have people who appreciate each other and want to be together. We're very lucky."
