It’s hard to find someone who is beautiful both in and out… Luke Perry was one of them

Kind, compassionate and humble are the words used to describe the Beverly Hills 90210 actor. Many claimed he had a ‘heart of gold’ and would do anything to help another person out.

He was also blessed with good looks.

Hailed as the ‘James Dean of our generation’, Luke featured on the bedroom walls of many a teen girl back in the ’90s.

But Luke was much more than a Hollywood heartthrob

He was also a family man, a doting husband and father, and a loyal friend.

Behind the scenes, he swapped his teen idol status to be the poster-boy for advocating awareness of colon cancer, after suffering a health scare in 2015.

Many even compared his Riverdale character – Fred Andrews, an upstanding member of the community – to his real-life persona.
