MANILA, Philippines – How’s this for a throwback – members of the cast of ’90s hit Beverly Hills 90210 reunited over the weekend at the ReWind convention in Chicago, documenting the event for fans on social media. Cast members Jason Priestley, Luke Perry, Jennie Garth, Tori Spelling, Gabrielle Carteris, Vincent Young, Christine Elise, and James Eckhouse were present to share their memories of the show that played a pivotal role in their respective careers.
Check out the video clips as they talked about being together again after 16 years. The show first aired on October 4, 1990 and ended on May 17, 2000.
The members also talked about former co-star Shannen Doherty, who played Brenda in the show, and shared messages of support for her. Shannen is currently battling breast cancer.
According to an article from Entertainment Tonight, Luke Perry, who played Dylan McKay said of Shannen: “None of us are up here today without Shannen. She’s been through a lot. She’s not doing well right now, but sometimes her contributions are minimized.”
Luke also said that he was glad to have Shannen as his partner during the show. His character Dylan was Brenda’s on-again, off-again boyfriend on 90210.
“She taught me a lot. I’m glad she was my scene partner. She was great at what she did in the character with me.”
Jennie Garth, who played Kelly Taylor, also gave a shout out to her good friend, posting a photo of a pink ribbon with the words “Fight Like Brenda.”
“To my soul sister [Shannen Doherty], strongest lady I’ve ever known. Then and now. I used to be threatened by your spirit, now I’m in awe of it. You’ve taught me a lot about speaking my mind and not being afraid of my power. I’m so grateful that young me got to be friends with you. But especially ‘old’ me! The best is yet to come on this crazy journey!! Love you!”
