Brian Austin Green paid tribute to Luke Perry in his own way! The actor has spoken out for the first time about the death of his Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star. He said that he'd texted his late friend after his passing.

During an episode of his podcast, "...with Brian Austin Green," the Desperate Housewives alum, 45, said,

Luke was a special guy. I’m still mourning over it, so there’s a part of me that’s kind of shocked that I’m speaking about Luke this way. We all knew that at some point we’d have to deal with losing cast members and friends, but not this soon. Not at 52. Not in such an abrupt way.

Brian continued,

Luke was one of those people nobody had a bad story about. He was just a great guy. And he was Luke no matter where you saw him, no matter when you saw him, no matter what he was going through. He was a rock.

He then revealed a heartbreaking thing he did following the death of his friend.

He explained,

I texted him after he passed, knowing obviously that he can’t text me back but on some level, hoping that he would text me back, or that he was out there somewhere. And I know he is. I know he’s looking down and I know he’s smiling.

Brian's statement comes just a few days after he defended himself after being criticized for not paying a tribute to Perry in public.

Brian portrayed David Silver while Perry played Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills, 90210 for its 10 seasons from 1990 to 2000.

Perry died on March 4, in an L.A. hospital surrounded by his loved ones, five days after suffering a heart attack in his home. He was 52.

Following his passing, it was confirmed that the late actor was secretly engaged to Wendy Madison and days later, sources confirmed that they were set to marry in August of upcoming summer.
