Special Feature: A generation of women who came of age in the 90s went into mourning when Luke Perry died last March. But it wasn’t for the 52-year-old Riverdale actor. It was for Dylan McKay, the iconic bad-boy from Beverly Hills 90210
Dylan McKay: “I’ve been with everybody in this room.” AK
RIP Luke Perry. 90210 was one of my favorite TV shows and I always hoped to be as cool as Dylan McKay. I copied his answering machine and his sideburns. My wrestling name was almost Zack McKay...but I thought it was too obvious that I was combining Zack Morris & Dylan McKay. ?
We loved him as Dylan McKay on 'Beverly Hills, 90210,' Pike in the 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' movie, Sideshow Luke Perry on 'The Simpsons,' Fred Andrews on 'Riverdale,' and so many more memorable roles. Share your favorite Luke Perry TV and movie scenes with us here.
"Beverly Hills, 90210" and "Riverdale" star Luke Perry has died at age 52, less than a week after suffering a "massive" stroke. Fans remember him well as the cool Dylan McKay, and more recently, Archie's dad Fred Andrews.
The moment Dylan McKay drove his black Porsche onto the West Beverly High lot, our lives changed forever.
With signature sideburns and a brooding image, Luke Perry brought a dark disposition to sunny Beverly Hills. As bad boy Dylan McKay, Perry helped iconize a zip code and enthrall a generation. After suffering a stroke, Luke Perry has died at the age of 52.
I think about how Dylan McKay blew all of his money living in a hotel all the time.
