  • Quotes

    • Luke: I want to spend my last dollar on my last day. Either that or leave $88 million to Anna Nicole Smith.

    • Luke Perry: (when asked what he was like in high school) My high school was nothing like West Beverly High, let me tell you. I grew up in Fredericktown, Ohio. It was a small town [population 2,300]. I didn't do that well in school, although I was voted "The Biggest Flirt." I played sports I was on the tennis team and also the baseball team. But the coolest thing I did was that I dressed up as our school mascot, Freddie Bird, for all of the football games. My step-father had a helicopter and I got the helicopter to drop me onto the football field. It was cool.

    • Luke Perry: Growing up in the Midwest, people don't drive Porsches and Ferraris. They drive Fords and Chevys. And so even if you have the opportunity to buy a more expensive car, it doesn't occur to you because it's not what you relate to. At a restaurant, you don't look to order the thing you can't pronounce because that's not what makes sense to you. A lot of times, people forget what makes sense to them and what, in effect, got them where they are, and I think they go a little astray.

    • Luke Perry: I go bungee-jumping with Jason (Priestley.) Go camping. I go four- wheeling in my truck. I also like to fish, cook, do stuff around my house. I even studied fencing for awhile.

    • Luke Perry: (what he'd want to be if he wasn't an actor) I've had tons of odd jobs, but I think that I would probably be a fireman because you get to see the results of your job. You get there and there is a house on fire. You leave and there's not a fire anymore.

    • Luke Perry: (when asked if he liked being famous) It's hard and sometimes it's scary. It still amazes my mother. I went home for Christmas one year and there were fans all over the front lawn, hoping to see me.

    • Luke Perry: (when asked what he was like in high school) My high school was nothing like West Beverly High, let me tell you. I grew up in Fredericktown, Ohio. It was a small town [population 2,300]. I didn't do that well in school, although I was voted "The Biggest Flirt." I played sports I was on the tennis team and also the baseball team. But the coolest thing I did was that I dressed up as our school mascot, Freddie Bird, for all of the football games. My step-father had a helicopter and I got the helicopter to drop me onto the football field. It was cool.

    • Luke: (when asked what'd he do with $20 million) I'd disappear. You wouldn't see me again. The world everyday is becoming more and more of a place I'd like to disappear from. So I think if I had 20 million bucks, I'd take the opportunity and do that.

    • Luke: When I was a kid, I was at a bowling alley and I ran into a soda machine. I still have the scar on my right eyebrow obviously.

  • Great Actor& sooo Ageless!!!!

    I love love Luke Perry not only is he is a great actor even to this day he is still goregous and ageless as well. He takes his craft seriously and just lights up the screen he is a true talent. Iam soo grateful to have the seasons of BH 90210 on dvd because as the alcoholic troubled Dylan McKay he was brilliant!!!!! I also enjoyed the movie "8 Seconds as well. He is my age and like fine wine Luke Perry just keeps getting better!!!!moreless
  • Really a talented actor!

    Really one talented and great actor that has come into his own. Sure he may not be able to find another great chacter like Dylan McKay, which he is known for on Beverly Hills 90210. But he went from being an actor, that was known only for his good looks. To an actor who can really do it all. He did it for the tv show "Oz!" As well as beared his naked body on there. But other than that, hopefully he will be able to find a great tv role out there. As he isn't seen that much these days unfortunately.moreless
