Jason Priestley: Actor 21

Posted on

He plays clean teen Brandon Walsh on Fox’s Beverly Hills 90210, hut he insists that it’s miscasting, lie says the real Priestley thrives on black coffee and chain-smoking. For thrills, he loves the blackjack tables in Vegas, his motorcycle and dare-death bungee jumping. “I don’t get up in the morning and look in the mirror and say, ‘Hey, Jay baby, lookin’ good today,’ ” he claims. “I get up and say, ‘Where’s the Visine?’ ” Stuff and camouflage, scoffs his costar, Shannen Doherty. “He doesn’t like for people to see [his] vulnerability,” she says. Where will all this hell-raising get him? “In about five years,” Priestley says, “I think I’m going to wake up and look exactly like Jeremy Irons.”
