Shannen Doherty, who played his on-screen girlfriend, shared a photograph of the two together in the 1990s without a caption.
Ian Ziering post one too with the caption: ‘No words can express what my heart feels hearing today’s shocking news. Let us all say a prayer for his speedy recovery.’
Support system: Many celebrities took to Twitter to send their messages of support
On Wednesday, the same day of his stroke, which was first reported by TMZ, Fox announced it would be rebooting the 90s classic with some of the original cast but it is not known if Perry was in talks to appear in it.
Most recently, he has appeared on screens as Fred Andrews in the hit series Riverdale.
He also appeared in the 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the 1994 film 8 Seconds.
Perry shot to fame as Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills 90210 in the 90s.

He has gone on to appear in dozens of shows and films and is one of the most prolific TV actors in Hollywood.
He has two children with his ex-wife Rachel Sharp. The pair were married between 1993 and 2003.
Since then, he has not had any serious relationships that have been made public.
It is not clear who was home with Perry, if anyone, when he suffered his stroke. The actor’s children are 21 and 18.
In 2015, the actor had a cancer scare when doctors found pre-cancerous cells on his colon.
They were removed and Perry adapted his diet and lifestyle afterwards to reduce his chances of it returning.
The actor’s career has spanned several decades. He is shown, left, in Beverly Hills 90210 with Shannen Doherty and right, starring alongside KJ Apa in Riverdale which is currently on CW

‘I have significantly cut down on the amount of red meat I eat.
‘I used to be a steak and potatoes kind of guy — now it’s just for special occasions. I eat a lot more fish, natural grains and fiber,’ he said in an interview at the time.’
The cast of Riverdale is currently filming the show’s fourth season in Vancouver while the remainder of the third series is aired on CW.
It is not clear what Perry’s filming schedule is.
A spokesman for CW declined to comment when contacted by DailyMail.com on Thursday.
Fox announced on Wednesday that it had ordered a revival of Beverly Hills 90210 and that some of the major characters from the original series had signed on.
Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling all agreed to take part but it is not clear of Perry was in discussions for it.
