Lili Reinhart Pens Heartbreaking Poem In Memory Of Luke Perry

Lili Reinhart has written an emotional poem following the death of her 'Riverdale' co-star, Luke Perry.

Reinhart uploaded three pages of poetry, written out on her iPhone notes app, to Instagram stories after the news of Perry's death was announced.

"It's strange to see the world move on. When someone you love, gets taken from you," Reinhart wrote.

"And the small circumference surrounding you is stuck. Frozen in a moment. Of loss. And shock. Yet the people passing you are moving at full speed. Did they not feel the earth shake? Or slow? Can they hear the thoughts screaming in my head? His name?"

The actor's heartfelt poetry continued on to say that "it's too hard to give anything right now".


Perry passed away aged 52 after suffering a stroke last week. He was best known for his role as Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills, 90210 and more recently, as Fred Andrews on Riverdale. 

His Riverdale co-stars including Molly Ringwald and Cole Sprouse also posted tributes to the late actor on social media.

"My heart is broken, I will miss you so much," said Ringwald.

"He was a father, brother, friend, and mentor. Each night before he had to shoot a scene, he’d call me and we’d talk about...everything. I will miss those calls. And my heart goes out to all his family and friends."

Riverdale is currently in production, but filming has been halted so the cast and crew can grieve the loss of Perry, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
