Luke Perry is definitely loved.

His former co-stars on Beverly Hills, 90210 remembered the deceased actor on his birthday Monday. Perry, who would have been 55 this year, died on March 4, 2019, days after suffering a massive stroke. He was 52.

More than two years later, Tori Spelling, Shannen Doherty and others who played alongside Perry in the teenage drama had kind words to their deceased friend.

Spelling, the long-running show Donna Martin, one of the few characters who never romanticized Perry’s Dylan McKay, referred to him as “my friend and brother Luke.” She continued, “You are missed so much. There is not a day goes by that I do not think of you. You were one of a kind. I remember meeting you as a young insecure teenage girl. You were the first boy, that ever made me feel worthy as a human being, a woman and a comedian. “

She remembered the times he had defended her.

“Like a friend and big brother. You stood up hard for me. Went to fight literally for me when I was in a verbally abusive relationship and sat and talked myself through the most insecure moments in a teen anxiety girl’s life. I will forever be “camel”. The name you call me bc of my long eyelashes. You had a way of making every single person feel confident, heard and special the moment they met you. Your energy was pure selfless love. One gives in this ungiving life. Your loving nature bore through decades. “

Perry, remembered she had often called and texted about her five children and ended their conversations with, “Uncle Luke loves them.”

His parenting skills — to the 24-year-old son Jack and daughter Sophie, 21 — also earned high marks from her.

“As a parent, you defined the hands on. Always put Jack and Sophie first. Loved showing pictures of Jack wrestling and purses and pieces Sophie designed and made. Always saying you and Soph would beat it out by doing things together [sic]. “

Spelling regretted the things she and Perry had talked about but never did, including what sounds like a scary movie with their 90210 teammates.

“2 sorry I have. We never had that Taco Tuesday family night at your house {I heard your tacos were the best} and that I could not fulfill your vision and dream that our cast made the horror movie you were “so passionate about doing with them. Sorry, both of these things never happened,” she wrote. “Today and every day we miss you all and keep you in our hearts. Everyone does. You made a great impression on this lifetime Lukey.”

Meanwhile, Jennie Garth shared a snapshot of her character, Kelly, who was close to Perry’s Dylan. She wrote it: “Miss you my friend.”

Perry shared many of his scenes in the show’s early years with Doherty, though she left the show after the first four seasons. She shared several photos of the couple linked together and let them speak for themselves.

Ziering also kept his tribute simple: “Miss you friend. Happy Birthday LP.”

Birthday wishes also came from Christine Elise, who played Emily Valentine in a dozen episodes of the show.
