Three hunky actors from the 90210 reincarnation have responded positively to recent news that one of the characters they play will come out in the show's upcoming season.
“It's exciting because the way they're explaining it, it's going to be written in a way where it's really going to focus on the struggle of coming to fruition of who he is – whoever he is,” Trevor Donovan, who plays the all-American jock Teddy, told GregInHollywood.com.
“To tell you the truth, I would be honored and flattered and excited if it was me,” he continued. “Because not only would it be a great opportunity to sort of display and showcase your acting chops, but it's also a great opportunity to [portray the] struggle of coming to that fruition, the realization.”
Matt Lanter, who plays Liam, reacted by saying, “I think it's a good thing. I think it's an issue that is becoming more and more real in schools today, people are coming out more and more I think it's something that teens deal with and it can be done in a real way.”
Finally, the third character 90210's PR team has said might come out of the closet this fall is Navid, played by Michael Steeger. “I think it's going to be interesting because last year they dealt with Adrianna experimenting,” Steger said. “This year it's going to be on a much more serious level.”
