Tiffani Thiessen says goodbye to Luke Perry by telling him how he said hello.
On Thursday morning the 45-year-old actress went on Instagram to post a lovely retrospective photo of herself and the deceased actor, with whom she played along with Beverly Hills, 90210 from 1994 to 1998. In the caption she explained how Perry welcomed her on the show and reassured her on her first day.
“My heart weighs heavily,” wrote Thiessen. “The loss of a man who started as my co-star, but quickly became my friend, welcomed me on my first day of # 90210 with open arms, a day that was not easy for me, I came to a show, really a family that had been together for over 4 years, but this man took me under his wing and made me feel at home, made me feel like I belonged to his TV family. “
“He was sincere, sweet, warm, kind, professional and funny, as well,” she added. “And above all, the definition of a luke, Luke, our world has a hole in it when you’re not there, but heaven has certainly won you as an angel.”
Thiessen joined the Fox series in season 5 as Valerie Malone, a friend of Brandon (Jason Priestley) and Brenda Walsh (Shannon Doherty) from Minnesota with a dark past. During her time at 90210, her character became a romance with Dylan McKay, Perry’s character, but it did not last long.
The TV star is the latest co-star to honor Perry with a post that remembers his life and legacy since his death on 4 March on the basis of complications after a stroke. Also on Thursday, Priestley shared two images of himself and the deceased leading man, one of their time together and one of the past years.
“It took me a couple of days to figure out how to write this”, he subtitled the images. “My dear friend of 29 years, Luke Perry, was one of those really special people who really cared about … Luke was not just a star, he was an incredibly bright light that was extinguished too soon … and that is why I, and so many others, have so much pain today … If you were lucky enough to know Luke, or ever have crossed his path, I know you are sad today. “
“The candle that burns twice as bright only burns half as long,” he added. “You burned oh, so bright Luke … Good night, dear prince.”
Ian Ziering, who played Steve Sanders on the show, also remembered Perry, signed a photo of himself with the actor: “Dearest Luke, I will always cherish the loving memories we have shared over the last thirty years,” he wrote. .
“May your journey be enriched by the magnificent souls that you have passed, just as you have done here for those you leave behind,” continued the post of the 54-year-old actor. “God please give him a seat close to you, he deserves it.”
Doherty, the charity of his character in the early years of the show, also offered a touching memory since his death.
“Yesterday morning I received a phone call that broke me”, she wrote together with a number of photographs of herself and Perry together. “I struggle with this loss and have a hard time with my thoughts, but my heart goes out to his family and friends who are blessed by his light in their (and my) lives.” Processing is impossible at this time. “
