Stars react to Luke Perry's death at age 52

Tributes to Luke Perry are pouring in after the actor's death at age 52.

“I am in shock. Heartbroken," Shannen Doherty, who played Perry's on-screen love interest in "90210," told People, adding, "Luke loved his family. He raved about his kids and how proud he was of them. He showed me videos of the often. They were his heart and for him, his biggest accomplishment."

Calling him a "smart, quiet, humble and complex man with a heart of gold," Doherty recalled rekindling her friendship with Perry after her cancer diagnosis. "I will miss him everyday. Every minute. Every second."
