The Cast of Beverly Hills, 90210: Where Are They Now?
Here's what the cast has been up to since the show debuted on Oct. 4, 1990
Since her days as troubled Kelly Taylor, Garth has done a lot of TV work, including the sitcom What I Like About You co-starring Amanda Bynes, which ended in 2006. She also reprised her role as a more responsible Kelly in the CW sequel series 90210, which ran from 2008 to 2013. In 2015, she married Dave Abrams, after splitting ex Peter Facinelli, with whom she has three daughters, in 2012.
Spelling welcomed her fifth child (son Beau Dean) with Dean McDermott in March 2017 — and said she's considering a sixth. “I forgot how much I loved being pregnant,” she previously told PEOPLE. “I love the connection. You are never alone.” Made famous from her role as Donna Martin, the actress has filled her time with a few reality shows and a vampire Lifetime movie with James Franco.
Open about her journey with breast cancer since her diagnosis in March of 2015, Doherty announced she was in remission in April 2017 and underwent breast reconstruction surgery in May 2018. “Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment,” she said in an Instagram post celebrating the news. Aside from 90210, Doherty has landed iconic roles on Charmed and in 1988’s Heathers. Twice divorced, she's been married to producer Kurt Iswarienko since 2011.
Doherty’s onscreen brother has dabbled in directing in his last few projects, which includes the Canadian crime procedural Private Eyes. The father of two has been married to wife Naomi Lowde since 2005, and has survived two scary incidents in recent years, being thrown from a horse on the set of The Code in 2015 and crashing head-on into a wall during a 2002 car race at the Kentucky Speedway.
Brian Austin Green
Green’s recent projects include Anger Management and an episode of Magnum P.I., but most of his excitement comes from his family. Green has three sons with his estranged wife Megan Fox, and also has a son with ex Vanessa Marcil.
Thiessen is quite the culinary expert these days. (Try her spiked strawberry lemonade!) Former host of the Cooking Channel’s Dinner at Tiffani’s, she previously told PEOPLE, “the kitchen is where I spend the most time.” Beverly Hills, 90210 drama has followed Thiessen IRL as costars Garth and Spelling once dissed her on an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, referring to her as “that which we don’t speak of.” The actress has two young children with her husband of more than a decade, Brady Smith.
When he wasn't chain-sawing through storms of sea creatures alongside Tara Reid in the Sharknado franchise, Ziering was a proud Chippendales dancer. Beverly Hills, 90210 costars Garth and Doherty even paid him a visit to one of his performances in 2013. “Judging by their reactions, I know they had a great time,” he previously told PEOPLE about their mini-reunion. Married to Playboy model Nikki Schieler from 1997 to 2002, Ziering remarried in 2010, tying the knot with Erin Ludwig, with whom he has two young daughters. However, Ludwig filed for divorce in Nov. 2019.
Carteris is the, ahem, most mature West Beverly High alum on this list, and she’s standing up against ageism in Hollywood. Carteris, who has done a lot of voice acting for video games and cartoons, wrote a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter in which she called for ages to be removed from casting sites like IMDb. “This problem exists for all performers, but most distinctly for women,” the SAG-AFTRA president wrote. She's been married for more than 25 years and has two daughters.
The actor passed away at age 52 on March 4, 2019, five days after suffering from a stroke.
"He was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancé Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder, and other close family and friends," his rep said in a statement. "The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning."
Prior to his death, Perry had returned to teen TV with a recurring role as Archie's dad, Fred Andrews, on the CW’s Archie comics adaptation Riverdale. Prior to his death, he hadn't signed on to the 90210 reboot, though the show did honor him.
