Luke Perry’s former “Beverly Hills 90210” co-stars paid tribute to their late co-star, who passed yesterday after suffering a stroke, with Shannen Doherty posting an intimate picture of her and former onscreen love interest on Instagram.

Wrote Doherty, “yesterday morning I got a phone call that devastated me. I’m struggling with this loss and am having a hard time with my thoughts. But, my heart goes out to his family and friends who were blessed by his light in their (and mine) lives. Processing this is impossible right now.”

Jennie Garth, who played Kelly Taylor, and Tori Spelling, who played Donna Martin, also expressed their condolences.

From The Daily Mail : Jennie Garth seemed downcast as she left a restaurant in Los Angeles with husband Dave Abrams by her side.

“My heart is broken. He meant so much to so many. Such a very special person. I share my deep sadness with his family and all who loved him. Such a terrible loss.”, Garth told People.

Spelling told the same outlet : “‘I’m in utter shock and heartbroken. I’m saddened for his kids whom he adored beyond words. He was so proud of Jack and Sophie.”

Carol Potter, who played family matriarch Cindy Potter on the Fox series, tells People that she was “immediately struck by this James Dean-esque quality but also he just seemed to have his feet on the ground. You had this combination of this unreachable sexy guy with this sense of an inner foundation at the same time.”

Potter says Perry’s death feels “unreal.”

“It’s unimaginable,” she admits. “When you work together, there is a family-life intimacy that comes up and that never goes away. I always hoped our paths would cross again and I could get to know the incredible man that he seems to have become.”

Boreanaz : Something Angel in the works

Actor hints that some kind of surprise is in store for the show’s 20th anniversary

Last time David Boreanaz spoke of his ‘Angel’ character, he was wishing the ‘Buffy’ reboot well – encouraging fans to not only accept another actress in the ‘Slayer’ role but also Angel, knowing that part would also likely be recast.

Today, however, Boreanaz helped spike sales in mops and buckets by telling The Talk that something is in the works to coincide with the 20th Anniversary of “Angel” (which aired on The WB from October 5, 1999, to May 19, 2004, consisting of five seasons and 110 episodes).

“We’re coming up on 20 years. I mean, that’s amazing to have been blessed with a show like that and that’s where I really started my gig — this acting world,” said the “SEAL team” actor.

“I love that character,” Boreanaz added. “So, I will say there may be something coming up. I don’t want to give away much. I can say, it’s 20 years coming up this fall and we may have something in the works.”

Naturally, most took that to mean that Boreanaz would be playing the ageless (yep, he’ll always look 27) detective vampire again for a new limited series or telemovie – and that his former co-stars, which included Alexis Denisof, J.August Richards, Charisma Carpenter, Julie Benz, Vincent Kartheiser and Amy Acker would be joining him. It wouldn’t be a ‘reunion’ without everyone, of course. Wouldn’t that be frigtastic!?

What excited fans seem to be overlooking though are the traditional ways a reunion has taken place in the “Buffy” universe before – specifically, how the 20th Anniversary of the parent series was recognized. Remember? That EW reunion cover shoot (which Boreanaz and others participated in)? What about the ‘Buffy’ reunion panel at Comic-Con? Yep?

Hate to pop the balloon but I do feel Boreanaz, 49, is hinting at something smaller, though no less exciting, than a new “Angel” series. With ‘Buffy’ going the reboot route, without the original cast, there’s next to no reason why it’s spin-off would return to air, right? So, um, yep… expect both an EW issue and comic-con panel to be dedicated to Joss Whedon’s legendary f*cking vampire and his awesome troupe of spook combatants.

And yes, it broke me to write this too – – never have I wanted a ‘revival’ of a series so much in my life. Well, not since “Fang Face”.

Brian Austin Green says 90210 cast met up after Luke Perry’s death

The actor said he had spoken to Perry about the reboot

Brian Austin Green took to the airwaves this week to talk about the loss of his friend and “Beverly Hills 90210” co-star Luke Perry.

The actor has released a new episode of his podcast… with Brian Austin Green, in which he pays tribute to Perry, who died on March 4 after suffering a massive stroke in his Los Angeles home at the age of 52.

“Luke was a really f—ing cool guy,” Green tells listeners. “Luke was one of those people that nobody had a bad story about. He was just a great guy. And he was Luke no matter where you saw him, no matter when you saw him, no matter what he was going through. He was a rock. I’m extremely lucky to have had him in my life. He really is a great guy and he’ll be missed.”

The actor said he met up with his former “90210” co-stars at Gabrielle Carteris’ home following their beloved co-star’s death.

“It was very mixed emotions because you were happy to see everybody … but what a horrible reason to have to see everybody again,” Green said.

Green said he knew that Perry, what with his commitments to “Riverdale”, would not be able to do the recently-announced “90210” reboot with the rest of the troupe but “we thought, if the reboot’s doing really well he can always come back and he can do a couple episodes, we’ll figure it out,” Green said. “Same thing with Shannen [Doherty]. It’s a shame now that that’s not a possibility. That’s so low on the totem pole but it’s a shame for fans that they don’t get that send-off of Dylan McKay like they want.”

On a very sad note, Green said he texted Perry after he died “knowing obviously that he can’t text me back, but on some level hoping that he would text me back or that he was out there somewhere,” Green said. “And I know he is. I know he’s looking down and I know he’s smiling.”
