Perry’s death came days after he suffered a massive stroke last Wednesday, his publicist Arnold Robinson said, noting the actor’s family and friends were by his side in his final moments.

She noted how Perry was a positive presence for her amid her years-long cancer battle after years of silence.

‘Luke reached out to me during my cancer journey and we picked right back up, albeit older and wiser, but that connection remained in tact,’ said Doherty, who underwent a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation en route to being declared cancer-free in April of 2017.

She opened up about their time on the teen drama, which Perry was on from 1990-95, later returning for the show’s final seasons in 1998-2000.

‘There is a special kind of love one has for each other when you are experiencing the journey we did on 90210 and of course life in general,’ she said.

While neither was linked to the upcoming reboot of the series, she said that she and Perry, who was on The CW’s Riverdale in recent years, had been ‘working on show ideas’ to reunite in front of the camera.

‘We wanted to work with each other again,’ she said, ‘and create something special and meaningful for our fans at this stage in our lives.’

Formal: The relationship between Brenda and Dylan was a key storyline throughout the series 

What could have been: The TV stars recently chatted about working together again, according to Doherty 

She opened up about a recent meeting they had, saying ‘a couple of weeks ago in February, Luke and I met up for lunch. 

”He chose the restaurant based on who would allow his dog. I walked in and there he was, smiling, with his dog Penny and her bed under the booth, happy as can be. I will never forget – and will miss – Luke looking at me with that smile of his saying … Shan.’

She noted how he ‘loved his family’ and ‘how proud he was’ of his kids, son Jack, 21, and daughter Sophie, 18.

Beyond 90210, Perry left behind more than 35 years of credits in movies and TV, where he also had memorable runs on shows such as Oz, John from Cincinnati and Body of Proof. His film career included roles in movies such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 8 Seconds and The Fifth Element.
