Hayley Armstrong (Perry King)

Hayley Armstrong, played by Perry King, is a recurring character seen on Melrose Place, the second series of the Beverly Hills, 90210 continuity, appearing in Seasons 3 and 4.

Hayley, a rich man introduced in the third season, was the father of Brooke Armstrong. The pompous side of his personality often created friction between he and Brooke's husband Billy. Eventually, the couple moved from the mansion and into an apartment at Billy's old home of Melrose Place. However, Hayley also possessed a certain charm that eventually attracted Alison Parker, Brooke's on-again, off-again rival. In time, Hayley and Alison fell in love and were married.

Shortly afterward, friction began to develop between the two, though they retained a loving relationship. However, Hayley soon died during a boat accident, and it was later revealed that he had divorced Alison. Just as Brooke had told Alison in advance, her father was not one to commit. Hayley was mourned by his daughter and ex-wife.
