Perry's son Jack Perry, who is a professional wrestler signed to burgeoning company All Elite Wrestling under the name Jungle Boy, also broke his public silence earlier today to pay tribute to his beloved Dad.
She continued: "I can not individually respond to the hundreds of lovely and heartfelt messages, but I see them, and appreciate you all for sending positivity to my family and I". "You will be missed but most certainly your legacy will be remembered forever".
The TV personality explained that she and her husband, Mark Conseulos, were extremely close with the late actor since Perry and Consuelos "spent all their time together" on and off the set of "Riverdale".
Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa posted on Instagram Wednesday morning that the episode, and all subsequent episodes for the rest of the series' run, will be dedicated to Perry. He will no longer be at the Bar Wrestling show on March 13 or at Wrestle Summit presented by PCW Ultra on March 29.
Perry, who began his career at the center of a different cultural touchstone, "Beverly Hills, 90210", was cast as Archie Andrews' father, Fred, in the teen noir series based on the characters from Archie Comics.
"A lot has happened in this past week for me", the younger Perry posted on Instagram Tuesday. "Just, being grateful quietly", the 18-year-old concluded. "I made it back from Malawi just in time to be here with my family", she wrote. I can not individually respond to the hundreds of lovely and heartfelt messages, but I see them, and appreciate you all for sending positivity to my family and I.
Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW. "I love you Dad".
