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.”
