“When someone is drowning, you can try to save them, but not if they’re gonna drag you down with them.” These are words of wisdom uttered by the iconic Fred Andrews, played by Luke Perry, on the hit tv show, Riverdale.

Perry, also of 90210 fame passed away March 4th, 2019 after suffering a massive stroke. His costars, new and old, have come to social media to show their support. Madelaine Petsch, also who plays Cheryl Blossom on Riverdale, calls him a light in the lives of the Riverdale family. Jason Priestley, from Beverly Hills, 90210, also used a light analogy, saying, “the candle that burns twice as bright only burns for half as long.” It is clear that Luke Perry made a massive impact on the lives of his friends, family, costars, and fans.
