The cast and crew of Riverdale are mourning the loss of beloved actor Luke Perry who has passed away after suffering a massive stroke. Check out the social media tributes of Lili Reinhart, Vanessa Morgan, Ross Butler (the original Reggie), and more:
Luke Perry... you were a joyful and vibrant soul. You will be missed but most certainly your legacy will be remembered forever. Rest in love and peace, friend. #Riverdale— Riverdale Writers Room (@RiverdaleWriter) March 4, 2019
I’m finding it hard to grasp that he will no longer be around to give long hugs and share his wisdom and kindness with all of us.— Lili Reinhart (@lilireinhart) March 4, 2019
I’m thinking of his family. His children.
I pray for them to heal and find peace in this devastating loss.

Dearest Luke,— Ian Ziering (@IanZiering) March 4, 2019
I will forever bask in the loving memories we've shared over the last thirty years. May your journey forward be enriched by the magnificent souls who have passed before you, just like you have done here, for those you leave behind.
Also paying respect via Twitter was fellow 90s heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio who worked with Luke in his final movie project Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

Luke Perry used to come into the restaurant I worked in over a decade ago and he was always so kind to me and friendly in an industry where most people would just dismiss me. Always remembered that. RIP. And be kind and compassionate to those around you y’all.— Alexandra Daddario (@AADaddario) March 5, 2019

Didn’t know Luke Perry personally but this has made me very sad and caused me to dwell on my own mortality. Should be a fun week!— billy eichner (@billyeichner) March 5, 2019
Luke Perry was grounded and sweet. He told the best stories and set a great example of how an actor can handle success and fame with grace and humility. R.I.P., Luke.— Misha Collins (@mishacollins) March 4, 2019
Luke played Archie Andrews' father Fred in Riverdale. RIP Daddy Andrews.
