“He took care of us. An authentic man who took pleasure in offering his guidance and wisdom, his presence was healing. He had the ability to make you feel comfortable and at ease within seconds of seeing him. I will never forget the collective shock and distress we experienced when the news broke on set,” Mendes wrote.

The actress went on to say, “We lost a dear friend. My heart hurts for his family and anybody who had the pleasure of knowing him. Rest in peace, Luke. Although you’re no longer around to wrap me in the warmth of your hug, I can still remember what it felt like. Whenever I think of you, I will remember that feeling.”


Riverdale’s production was put to a halt on Monday and is expected to resume on Wednesday. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the executive producer, made an announcement that Perry will be featured in this week’s episode and that every episode from now on, will be dedicated to the actor.
