Almost half a decade after the untimely passing of actor Luke Perry due to a fatal stroke, Brian Austin Green has shed light on why the outcome of his friend’s demise might have been a more favorable scenario.

Speaking on the “Comfort Food with Kelly Rizzo” podcast, Green, aged 50, delved into the details of Perry’s unfortunate passing. Perry succumbed to complications arising from brain swelling related to the physical stroke. Expressing his initial dismay at the severity of the situation, Green acknowledged the rarity of individuals succumbing to strokes at Perry’s relatively young age of 52.

Green reflected, “There was a part of me, with the loss of him, where I felt like maybe that was the best thing to happen for him.” He elaborated, noting Perry’s notable qualities—his quick-wittedness, kindness, and generosity—and hypothesized that a prolonged recovery might have stripped Perry of these defining traits. “I think for recovery, possibly taking 4 years or near there, it would have been really, really difficult for him,” Green suggested.

Describing Perry’s character, Green emphasized the binary nature of Perry’s approach to life. “To me, he either had to be 100% or not. There was no middle ground,” he added, emphasizing Perry’s commitment to being true to himself.

At the time of Perry’s passing, Green had recently confronted a neurological condition that resulted in “stroke-like symptoms.” Reflecting on his initial reaction to Perry’s stroke, Green shared, “My first thought was, I just went through this. So, who better to help him through this than me?” However, Perry’s passing left Green deeply saddened and shocked, describing Perry as a brother and someone he admired, having known him even before their time on “Beverly Hills, 90210.”

“In grieving, you’re looking for those silver lining things,” Green told Rizzo, who had experienced the unexpected loss of her husband, Bob Saget. Acknowledging the individual nature of the grieving process, Green emphasized finding comfort in one’s own thoughts. “If that thinking helps you through the process at all, then that’s what you think,” he advised. Recognizing diverse perspectives on such matters, he concluded, “You do you.”
