Jason Priestley posts heartfelt tribute to Luke Perry on Instagram

Jason and Dylan forever!

Jason Priestley has finally broken his silence after the sad news of Luke Perry's death with an emotional Instagram post about his best friend and former Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star.

READ: Luke Perry has died, aged 52.

It’s taken me a couple of days to figure out how to write this... My dear friend of 29 years, Luke Perry, was one of those truly special people who really cared... Luke was not only a star, he was an incredibly bright light that was extinguished far too soon... and that is why I, and so many others, are in so much pain today... If you had the good fortune to know Luke, or to have ever crossed his path, I know you are sad today as well... the candle that burns twice as bright only burns for half as long... you burned oh, so brightly Luke... Goodnight Sweet Prince.


The post was soon followed by a thank you to all those that reached out to him saying:

Thank you all for all the love and support... Luke was much more than just a friend to me... he was also my teammate, my teacher, my sounding board, my compass, my brother... Luke was truly one of a kind... he adored his family, was passionate about his work, and loved his wide collection of friends... every life he touched, he made better... he was caring, gentle, charming, warm, funny, and smart... he loved to tell stories, and he loved to laugh... he was a true gentleman... and he will be missed by all of us who were blessed to know and love him... Rest In Peace my brother...


We still can't believe that he is gone. 

Excuse us while we go and binge all the seasons of 90210!
