Brian Austin Green is speaking out for the first time since the passing of his Beverly Hills, 90210
co-star Luke Perry. Perry died on Monday, March 4 after suffering from a massive stroke.
While a number of Beverly Hills, 90210 cast members spoke out right after his passing, Green took his time to form his thoughts.
“Luke was a special guy. I’m still mourning over it, so there’s a part of me that’s kind of shocked that I’m speaking about Luke this way,” the 45-year-old said in a recent episode of his podcast.
“We all knew that at some point we’d have to deal with losing cast members and friends, but not this soon. Not at 52. Not in such an abrupt way.”
Green explained how much people loved the Riverdale actor and how nobody had a bad thing to say about him.
“Luke was one of those people nobody had a bad story about. He was just a great guy,” he shared.
“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.”
Green, who played David Silver for all 10 seasons of the show, also revealed he went so far as to text Perry after his death.
“I texted him after he passed, 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,” he shared.
“And I know he is. I know he’s looking down and I know he’s smiling.”
