“My heart has been weighing heavy,” Thiessen wrote in an Instagram tribute this morning in reaction to Perry's death. “The loss of a man who started as my co-star but quickly became my friend. He welcomed me on my very first day of #90210 with open arms. A day that was not an easy one for me. I was coming in to a show, a family really, that had been together for over 4 years. But this man took me under his wing and made me feel at home. Made me feel like I belonged in his TV family.” ALSO: Riverdale's Camila Mendes, Madelaine Petsch and Cole Sprouse pay tribute to Perry.
