Actress Shannen Doherty has spoken out about the filming of Beverly Hills 90210 without Luke Perry saying it was "surreal" but the right way to honour him.

She said: "It was surreal, all of us together again and sort of realising that you're missing a key component, you're missing some heart. Luke was all heart and all humility and beauty and grace and humour and just grounding, earthy human being. So, he was missed sorely for sure."

Luke Perry who played Shannen Doherty's onscreen boyfriend Dylan in the 90s TV series died last March after a stroke aged-52.

The Little House On The Prairie actress had not planned to be part of the reboot programme before the death of Luke Perry, she said: "It was nothing against the show. I just didn't want to go back there."

The Charmed actress continued: "And then Luke passed away and it came back around to me and I just felt like we created so much together on 90210, our characters and our relationship, that love between the two of us... it felt like the right thing to do, to go back and do a show that I know meant so much to him.

The 90210 reboot, with the official title BH90210, will also star Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling.

Elsewhere, Doherty is also set to guest star in the premiere of the American teen drama's fourth season of Riverdale. Not revealing anything else she said: "It's a beautiful episode that is nothing but a tribute to his character and to Luke himself. And I'm beyond happy and honoured that I got to do this for him."
