In the 1990s, Luke Perry was a matinee idol who earned his fame for being among the lead stars of the youth-oriented TV drama series, “Beverly Hills, 90210.”
On Wednesday morning, news spread Internet-wide regarding himself all of a sudden reportedly suffering from a serious stroke.
The 52-year-old actor has been taken to the hospital for observation and his representatives said that he had been sedated.
In a recent interview with Fox News, Perry revealed that physicians had detected pre-cancerous growths in his colon in 2015.
He cited that he was 49 years old then and he learned this medical condition following his routinary colonoscopy examination.
The Hollywood heartthrob of the 1990s shared his learnings that there are over 23 million people in America who have to be screened for potential cancerous conditions.
Perry confirmed that he did not hesitate to have the pre-cancerous polyps removed after the tests.
He remarked that his situation could have worsened if he did not have such a curative procedure performed on him immediately.
The “Beverly Hills, 90210” star, who played as Dylan McKay in the TV drama series that ran from 1990 to 2000, urged the public to undergo cancer detection screenings to prevent themselves from suffering one of the highly fatal diseases in the country.
Perry also shared that he is now inclined to consuming a healthy diet, eating more fibrous food like natural grains and fish.
In addition, he said that he had already averted being a “steak and potatoes kind of guy,” diminishing his red meat intake and just reserving this appetizing food for special events.
A 911 call was received by from the Sherman Oaks, California home of Perry on Wednesday morning and paramedics responded quickly.
Although the father-of-two was reportedly talking and responsive when the medical team arrived, the “Riverdale” actor’s condition had allegedly deteriorated already by the time he reached the hospital.
Perry’s co-stars expressed their request for prayers on their official Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Shannen Doherty, his on-screen partner in the ten-year famous “Beverly Hills, 90210” program, shared a photo of herself being embraced in the show by the presently comatose TV star.
The “Charmed” actress referred to Perry as her friend and relayed some encouraging words saying, “Holding you tight and giving you my strength. You got this.”
