Television actor Luke Perry, best known for his starring role in "Beverly Hills, 90210," died on Monday, his representatives said. He was 52.

The actor was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after suffering a stroke at his home in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles, officials and a spokesperson for Perry said.

Perry was surrounded by his family including his children, Jack and Sophie; fiancee, Wendy Madison Bauer; and ex-wife, Minnie Sharp, when he died, his publicist said.

Perry was slightly young for a stroke victim, as 66 percent of those who suffer from such an attack are 65 or older, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
