On Wednesday, March 4, 2020, “Riverdale” actress Molly Ringwald took to social media to pay tribute to a fellow late co-star’s one-year anniversary of their death.

Ringwald took to Instagram where she revealed she was still mourning Perry and couldn’t believe it was already a year “since we lost this beautiful soul.” The actress continued her tribute stating: “Your presence is felt and you are missed every day, my friend.”

She ended her post by including a red heart emoji and a black and white throwback photo of the late star. Last year on February 27, the “Beverly Hills 90210” star suffered a stroke at his home in Sherman Oaks, California.
