When our hero was seven years old his parents divorced and soon his mother remarried. The family moved to the small village of Fredericktown, where Luke went to first grade. He could not boast of excellent performance, but the whole school was proud of his achievements in sports.
Luke Perry and Matthew Perry are not relatives but namesakes.
After leaving the series Perry switched to the big cinema. He played a policeman in the Normal Life (1995) crime picture, appeared in the cult The Fifth Element by Luc Besson (1997). However, the image of Dylan had stuck to the actor so firmly that the audience hardly perceived him in other roles. And the fees were disparately less than the huge amounts he earned in the series. Therefore, in 1998 the actor returned to the Beverly Hills (mainly due to financial means) and remained there until the last season, which was released in 2000.
Luke declared that the quality of the script and the storylines sucked from the finger ceased to suit him. Later the actor admitted that he didn’t want to play without Spelling, who was pushed by The CW channel.
