American actor LUKE PERRY sensationally scared his childhood pals when he brought toy guns to school.

The BEVERLY HILLS 90210 heart-throb, who is currently starring opposite Alyson Hannigan in the London theatre production of When Harry Met Sally, confessed the trick he planned for a joke did not come across as hilarious to the terrified pupils at his Ohio, America high school.

Perry admits, "I went into detention armed with fake toy guns to break out.

"It scared everyone because they thought they were real. Not very funny, really."
