'90210' Cast Then & Now: See How They've Changed (PHOTOS)

It's hard to believe (and it might make you feel just a teeny bit old), but Beverly Hills, 90210, premiered 25 years ago this month on FOX.

The trials and tribulations of the West Beverly High gang quickly became appointment television back in 1990, with teen girls everywhere quickly taking sides as to whether or not they were Team Brenda or Team Kelly.

So how does the 90210 cast look today? Let's take a stroll down Rodeo Drive, errr, memory lane.

    As fresh-faced Brenda Walsh, Shannen Doherty was supposed to be playing the girl next door. Unfortunately her behind-the-scenes antics seemed to outshine her good-girl character.

    Since her 90210 days Shannen had a successful run on another Aaron Spelling show, Charmed, and actively supports organizations like the Sea Shepherds and Cove Guardians who are trying to protect sea life. Earlier this year she was diagnosed with breast cancer and she is currently battling the disease.

    Jason Priestly played all-around perfect guy Brandon Walsh, and actually did date Christine Elise, who played on-screen bad girl Emily Valentine, in real life.

    Jason didn't appear on-screen for The CW's reincarnation of 90210 in in 2009, but he did direct one episode. He's currently filming the TV series The Wonderful Wayneys.

  • Jennie Garth Then

    Jennie Garth tackled the role of popular yet misunderstood Kelly Taylor. While the character of Brenda was meant to be the show's sweetheart, Kelly quickly stole the hearts of viewers.

    Jennie headed back to the 90210 world when The CW revamped it, playing a guidance counselor at West Beverly. She then reteamed with former costar Tori Spelling on the short-lived ABC Family comedy Mystery Girls.

  • Ian Ziering Then

    Ian Ziering played Steve Sanders, the son of a high-profile television actress. While he came across as a little obnoxious early on, he proved to be an integral part of the crew.

    Who would've guessed that two decades later Ian would be battling dangerous sea life in Syfy's Sharknado franchise? He also took an impressive turn around the Dancing with the Stars ballroom for a season.

  • Gabrielle Carteris Then

    Gabrielle Carteris received a lot of flack for playing high school newspaper editor Andrea Zuckerman while in her thirties, but her character's intense crush on Brandon made her relatable to girls everywhere.

    Gabrielle is currently working on a web series called Send Me and appeared on both The Middle and Longmire. She's the mother of two grown daughters. Her first pregnancy was actually written into 90210 (remember the birth of baby Hannah?).

  • Luke Perry Then

    Luke Perry nailed the whole Rebel Without a Cause persona that was Dylan McKay. It's easy to see why Brenda completely fell for the guy. And he made teens everywhere wish they lived in a posh hotel, too.

    These days Luke is trying desperately to put his 90210 days to rest (even though everyone continues to ask him about them), and is working a lot with the UP network on series like Ties That Bind and the TV movie Welcome Home.

  • Tori Spelling Then

    Everyone assumed Tori Spelling only snagged the part of Donna Martin because her father Aaron created and produced the show. But can you really imagine anyone else playing that character?

    Tori has been the subject of a lot of tabloid fodder since her 90210 days, particularly after the very public exposure of her husband Dean McDermott's extramarital affair. The blonde always seems to bounce back, and has the reality shows to prove it.

  • Brian Austin Green Then

    David Silver may have started out as the geeky freshman, but he ended up a loyal member of the high school gang, particularly when he worked his butt off to graduate with the rest of them to maintain his relationship with Donna.

  • Brian Austin Green Now
