THE late Luke Perry will be mentioned in the upcoming reboot of Beverly Hills, 90210, Jacob Priestley has confirmed.
Jacob, 49 – who played Brandon Walsh – is returning alongside the likes of Tori Spelling, Brian Austin Green, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering and Gabrielle Carteris, and admitted it was a “difficult line to walk” planning a respectful tribute.
He told ET Canada, “I think we had to talk about the fact that he wasn’t there.
“And I think we’ve done it in a tasteful way that’s not exploitative.
“You know it’s a difficult line to walk.
“It’s not like you really know how to do it because it’s not something you do every day.
“So hopefully we’ve done it in a way and we’ve been successful in navigating those waters successfully.”
Jacob also admitted that it has been “good” for the cast to be together following their former co-star’s death.
He said, “I think that all of us being together has been good. Obviously, Luke not being there … Luke was a big part of that cast and a big part of our family and his absence is definitely palpable but I think all of us being together has been good for all of us.” – BANG!
