(CNN)Actor Luke Perry has been hospitalized.

A representative for the actor told CNN on Thursday that "Mr. Perry is currently under observation at the hospital."

The spokesperson would not elaborate about what led to his hospitalization.

Perry rose to fame in the '90s for his role on Fox's hit series "Beverly Hills, 90210," from 1990 to 2000. He currently stars as Fred Andrews on CW's "Riverdale."

A number of Perry's former "90210" co-stars took to social media to extend their support and wishes for a quick recovery.

Ian Ziering wrote on Instagram, "No words can express what my heart feels hearing today's shocking news. Let us all say a prayer for his speedy recovery."

'90210' star Luke Perry hospitalized after reported stroke; co-stars react to news

Luke Perry, who currently stars on CW's "Riverdale" but may be best-known for his long-running role on "Beverly Hills, 90210," has been hospitalized after paramedics responded to his home following a 911 call about a stroke.

His representative, Arnold Robinson, confirmed that "Perry is under observation at the hospital" but would not confirm the reason for his hospitalization. He has since denied a TMZ story reporting the actor has been placed in a medically induced coma, telling the gossip site and The Hollywood Reporter that he's merely sedated. 

Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said a call came in from the neighborhood of Sherman Oaks at 9:39 a.m. PST Wednesday and that an ambulance transported one person to a local hospital. Humphrey could not identify the patient by name.

TMZ and The Blast both published audio clips from the 911 call in which the patient’s blood pressure is given and the word “stroke” can be heard.

Perry, 52, was one of the early breakout stars from "90210" thanks to his role as Dylan McKay, a latter-day James Dean type. 

In an attempt to escape typecasting after "90210" ended, Perry sought out roles as different as possible, including playing a preacher in the HBO prison drama "Oz" in episodes from 2001 and 2002.

US actor Luke Perry has died in California at the age of 52, less than a week after suffering a massive stroke.

His publicist said Perry died surrounded by his family and friends.

Perry rose to fame on Beverly Hills, 90210 and had been starring as Fred Andrews on the CW show Riverdale.

He was taken to hospital on Wednesday in Los Angeles, where he had been shooting scenes for Riverdale at the Warner Bros film lot.

Perry's children, Jack and Sophie, fiancée Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, and his siblings, Tom Perry and Amy Coder, were with him when he passed, publicist Arnold Robinson said in a statement.

"The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning," Mr Robinson said.
