“We were like kids in the candy shop because I remember going to the studios and [Beverly Hills, 90210] was going on and he was that icon of coolness for us as teenagers,” he explained.

“It was this strange burst of excitement that I had, to be able to act with him.”

“Man, he was so incredibly humble and amazing and absolutely committed. He couldn’t have been a more friendly, wonderful guy to spend time with. I got to sit down and have some wonderful conversations with him,” he told the publication.

Luke Perry’s final film role is in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which also stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie.
