Luke, 52, tragically died in March following a stroke and his co-stars from 'Beverly Hills, 90210, in which Luke played Dylan McKay between 1990 and 2000, said that working on a reboot of the show has helped them recover after Luke's death.

Tori Spelling explained: "We just all wanted to be together and talk to only each other. Our families couldn't understand. Our friends outside of '90210' couldn't understand."

And Jennie Garth added at a 92Y talk in New York about the new show: "It drew us all together like a magnet."

Luke had not signed up for the reboot, which follows the cast as "heightened versions" of their real-life selves, but the stars including Jason Priestly, Shannen Doherty, Brian Austin Green, Ian Ziering and Gabrielle Carteris, previously explained the new show will pay tribute to him in a "tasteful" way.

Jason previously said: "I think we had to talk about the fact that he wasn't there. And I think we've done it in a tasteful way that's not exploitative.

"You know it's a difficult line to walk. It's not like you really know how to do it because it's not something you do every day.

"So hopefully we've done it in a way and we've been successful in navigating those waters successfully."

Jason also admitted it had been good for the cast to be together following their former co-star's death.

He said: "I think that all of us being together has been good. Obviously, Luke not being there ... Luke was a big part of that cast and a big part of our family and his absence is definitely palpable but I think all of us being together has been good for all of us."
