Recently, Perry's "Riverdale" co-star, Marisol Nichols, honored Perry with a social media message. She wrote, "One year ago. Missing this incredible being, it goes without saying we lost him too soon. Took this shot off the screen from our photo shoot for S2. He loved playing Fred Andrews, a genuinely good, honorable, caring dad and a stand up guy. And because that was who Luke was he imbued his character with all of himself and I loved him for it."

Reinhart wrote, "I had a dream last night that I saw Luke...and I hugged him so hard and cried into his shoulder, telling him how much we all miss him...Looking back on it this morning, I think his spirit was visiting me in my sleep, letting me know he's smiling brightly on the other side."
