After his co-star Luke Perry died suddenly from a massive stroke earlier this month, Brian Austin Green sent him a text message.
The pair had worked together on Beverly Hills 90210 and became good friends.
“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,” Green, who starred as David Silver alongside Perry’s Dylan McKay, explained recently on his podcast.

“And I know he is. I know he’s looking down, and I know he’s smiling.”
Green admitted he was still in shock over Perry’s death, describing him as 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,” he said.
“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.”
“Luke was one of those people nobody had a bad story about. He was just a great guy. And he was Luke no matter where you saw him, no matter what he was going through. He was a rock.”
He also revealed on the podcast that the 90210 cast recently reunited at a private gathering at Gabrielle Carteris’ house (who played Andrew Zuckerman) to celebrate Perry’s life.
Fans, colleagues and family have all been left shocked at the star’s sudden passing.
