As a co-star of Perry’s on Beverly Hills 90210, Doherty shared her happiest memory. She said, “We were a gang way back. We all grew up together going to the North and constantly laughing. Matt, Roger, David, Roxana. We played dare and Matt had to say ridiculous things to girls at the bar. We just always had fun and supported each other. You would always find us all together in a booth speaking in made-up language. And yes, Matt always had THAT sense of humor.” The two have known each other for nearly three decades.
She went on to say, “Matt and I had a date and it was on Valentine’s Day. He wanted to get a reservation at a restaurant in Malibu but couldn’t so my dad got the reservation for him. We went and he talked about my dad’s Irish persuasiveness for the majority of the night. Our friendship spanned a long time. A lifetime really. I know many are hurting, especially our little gang. He will be missed by many and definitely by us. Yes. I could be more poetic or say things better but right now, shock and sadness prevail.” The happiest memories she has with Perry will live on (via Instagram).
