Following the recent sudden death of actor Luke Perry, a group of Perry’s co-stars on Beverly Hills 90210 got together to remember their late friend.
Brian Austin Green, who played David Silver on the popular 1990s show, revealed on a recent episode of his podcast (per Page Six) that the former 90210 actors recently gathered at Gabrielle Carteris’ house in honor of Perry.

Green did not say who attended.
The now-45-year-old Green starred on 90210 between 1990 and 2000. He did not ever appear on the 90210 reboot series that aired on The CW between 2008 and 2013. However, Green was listed among the past 90210 actors who were attached to participate in the upcoming new 90210 reboot, which was announced prior to Perry’s death.
Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, Jennie Garth, and Tori Spelling were announced as likely cast members, although Perry was not. The six-episode series, per Forbes, is essentially a reboot without a reboot, with the actors playing versions of themselves as they reassemble for an updated version of the popular show.
