- “Beverly Hills, 90210” star Luke Perry passed away on March 4, 2019, at age 52.

“Beverly Hills, 90210” and “Riverdale” fans the world over mourned the passing of Luke Perry on March 4, 2019. The actor suffered a stroke and was rushed to the hospital on Feb. 27.
The former teen heartthrob was worth millions at the time of his passing.
Luke Perry Net Worth: $10 Million
Over the course of his acting career, Luke Perry achieved a net worth of $10 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Much of this no doubt stems from his stint on “90210,” where he played Dylan McKay. Although specific cast members’ salaries are hard to come by — it’s no secret there was tension behind the scenes about cast members’ pay — the show was a cultural phenomenon that lasted for 10 years. That Perry was a part of it at all is a testament to his acting prowess.
“I was a guest star, and [producer Aaron Spelling] wanted to make me a regular,” Perry once told The Hollywood Reporter.
Prior to his role in the show, he spent his time auditioning for minor roles and laying asphalt. At its peak, “90210” entertained 20 million viewers per week, according to The Guardian.

The first time I met Luke Perry we talked about what kind of movie we wanted “Buffy” to be. I asked if he’d ever seen “Near Dark” and he gave me a look of HOW DARE YOU SIR and I knew we’d get along. Funny, committed, and always gracious. He shouldn’t be gone.
