"Curly looks perfect in his 60s": how the actors from the cult TV series "Beverly Hills, 90210" aged
Back in 1990, the first episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 was released. The stories of American high school students experiencing love, betrayal, first sex, breakups, drug addiction, early pregnancy, and even AIDS became widely popular and gained a multi-million fan base. The project lasted for ten seasons, so it managed to become a truly cult show.
The lead actors in the series became the idols of millions, but now the 60-year-old actors are hardly recognizable as the bright teenagers they portrayed on the screen. A video showing how Brandon and Brenda Walsh and their movie friends have aged has been shared online (to see the photos and video, scroll to the bottom of the page) .
Jason Priestley - Brandon Walsh
Jason Priestley, a 21-year-old handsome man, has won many a girl's heart. Unfortunately, even after the series ended, the actor continued to be perceived only as a Brandon Walsh, which played a cruel joke on his career. In August, the star turned 54.
Shannen Doherty as Brenda Walsh
The talented actress played one of the main roles in the series, but after the fourth season, she was fired. Rumor has it that the producers were unable to work with Doherty because of her unbearable character. By the way, the same thing happened to her in the series All Women Are Witches. In 2015, the star was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent a mastectomy, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, but in 2020, she relapsed and now has stage four.
Luke Perry - Dylan McKay
Luke Perry was another heartthrob in the 90s. Unfortunately, in February 2019, the actor suffered a stroke. He was taken to the hospital, but there the star had a second stroke, which became fatal for him. In March of that year, the actor was taken off life support. He was only 52 years old.
Jenny Hart as Kelly Taylor
At the age of 18, Jenny Hart gained immense popularity, but after starring in ten seasons of the series, she never got any new iconic roles. However, the actress has realized herself as a mother of many children - she is raising three daughters.
Jan Ziering as Steve Sanders
At the time of filming the series, the actor was 26 years old. He, like most of his colleagues, was unable to surpass his own success after Beverly Hills, 90210, although he did many other films after that.
Brian Austin Green - David Silver
The handsome man started acting in the series when he was just 17 years old. Moviegoers know him not only as David Silver, but also as Megan Fox's ex-husband. The actors met on the set of the series Hope and Faith. Fox was 13 years younger. The star marriage, which was dissolved in 2021, gave birth to three children.
Tori Spelling - Donna Martin
17-year-old Tori Spelling got into the series thanks to her father, who was its producer. But even without additional dad's interventions, the bright blonde managed to make the audience fall in love with her. In 2007, the actress was ordained as a priest who can marry gay couples, also tried her hand at designing jewelry and wrote several books. Today, she and her husband are raising five children.
Gabrielle Carteris - Andrea Zuckerman
When filming began, Gabrielle Carteris was 29 years old. She was the oldest "schoolgirl" of the entire cast. Today she is 62. The actress later decided to choose a life behind the scenes and in 2016 became the president of the Screen Actors Guild of the United States.
The comments under the video with the aged actors are full of nostalgia and even sadness for the carefree time. Internet users write: "Am I the only one who wanted to shed a tear for those times?", "Curly looks perfect in his 60s", "Cool. Those were the days. School, after school I watched the series. Carefree life", "Steve looks even better now", "I wish I hadn't seen it. Let them remain in the memory as cool, young and beautiful."
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL wrote about how the actors of the cult series "Charmed" have changed. Its first episode was released back in 1998. The story of three witch sisters, the most powerful and kindest in history, was so popular with viewers that it lasted for eight seasons.
