Trevor Donovan responds.
Our friend Just Jared had the opportunity to ask Trevor how he felt about his character being chosen to play gay. “It was cool when they came to me with it, I was honored, flattered that hey thought I could take on something like this and handle it in the way it's being written and what we shot so far is done very, very smart, very intelligent."
Underscoring the immense responsibility he feels he's been handed Trevor went on to his Twitter page to continue discussing Teddy's upcoming "coming out" on the show.
“Acceptance, by family, friends, society and self is just one of the concerns the character will be going through. It is part of life, and it should be portrayed," Trevor Twatted.
If Trevor Donovan is looking for ways to research the gay lifestyle for the role, our office phone lines can be found in the top links of the page...
And the hunky 90210 character who will announce he's playing for our team this fall is... Trevor Donovan's character, Teddy Montgomery! A hot jock coming out on a show watched by millions of teens? We hope the show's scribes don't underestimate the responsibility!
Interesting fact: Kyle Riabko from Spring Awakening will play Teddy's love interest.
