Actor Luke Perry, best known for his roles on Beverly Hills 90210 and Riverdale, has been hospitalised after suffering a massive stroke.
On Wednesday, paramedics were called to the 52-year-old's home in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles at about 9:40am.
US tabloid outlets say someone called the local fire department and alerted the authorities that Perry was having a stroke, and he was later transported to a nearby hospital.
A Los Angeles Fire Department rep told Variety that paramedics attended Perry's address for an "unspecified medical request".

There are conflicting reports circulating about Perry's current state.
According to TMZ, family members say Perry was placed in a coma, but his publicist says he has only been sedated.

Perry's health scare comes just a day after Fox announced it will create a reboot season of Beverly Hills, 90210 , starring Perry's old co-stars Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Jason Priestly, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling and Gabrielle Carteris.
Perry, who played Dylan McKay in the hit 90s show, has not signed onto the project.
