• Luke is actually his stage name, his full name is Coy Luther Perry III.
  • In 2013, Luke told the Sway in the Morning show that he had to do 256 auditions before he landed his first gig.

  • During the same interview with Sway, he also told them he is really good friends with Henry Winkler…someone he grew up admiring.
  • One of his first gigs was in 1986, as an extra in the music video for Twisted Sister’s “Be Chrool to Your Scuel.”
  • From 1987–88 he played the character of Ned Bates on the soap opera Loving.

  • In 1989 he had a 10-episode arc as Kenny in the long-running soap opera, Another World.
  • Right before he landed the role of Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills, 90210, he was working construction — laying down asphalt in parking lots.
  • The character of Dylan was not in the first episode of 90210.
  • Dylan was introduced in the second episode and his character was only meant to be part of a two-episode arc.
  • Fox did not like the character of Dylan and wanted him off the show (after his two episodes), however the show’s executive producer, Aaron Spelling, liked the character and made him a series regular.
