It has been 25 years since Beverly Hills 90210 hit our TV screens and the shenanigans of Brandon, Brenda and their crew became our collective teenage preoccupation.

To celebrate the anniversary of the show, and to entertain ourselves with early 90s fashion, hair, and make-up, here's a gallery of the stars photographed then and now.  In fairness, we reckon most of them look better today...

Luke Perry

He played Dylan McKay and went on to bag several TV roles and a Hallmark movie, Goodnight for Justice, which was directed by fellow 90210 star Jason Priestley.  Pictured above at the MTV movie awards in 1992 and in 2015.

Jason Priestley


He played Shannen Doherty's brother Brandon in 90210 and was not just a pretty face - he was executive producer on the show until it wrapped in 2000.  He married make-up artist Naomi Lownde in 2005 and they have two children.  He has had several TV roles and published his memoir about his time on 90210 last year.  This weekend Tori Spelling admitted she had slept with him during their time on the show.

Shannen Doherty

She played Brenda Walsh but was sacked from the show in 1994 due to her behaviour and went on to bag a role in long-running TV series Charmed.  She also appeared on Dancing With the Stars and married Kurt Iswarienko in 2011.  She was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.  She's photographed here at the MTV Movie Awards in 1992 and more recently in 2011. Tori Spelling (see below) has admitted teaming up with castmates to have Shannen sacked.  Tori also revealed she loaned Shannen a dress which was stained with her 'virgin blood' for a photoshoot.

Tori Spelling

Tori, daughter of executive producer Aaron Spelling, played Donna Martin and accusations of nepotism dogged her throughout her time on the show.  She married Dean McDermott in 2006 and has starred in several reality shows with her hubby, who later admitted cheating on her.  They stayed together and have four children. Here she is in 1992 and today.

Jennie Garth

Jennie played perky Kelly Taylor.  She also appeared on Dancing with the Stars and had a role in the new version of 90210.  She has three children with ex husband Peter Facinelli.  They split in March 2012 and she married David Abrams in July.

Brian Austin Green

He played smooth David Silver and has since landed several TV roles in Freddie, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Smallville, and Desperate Housewives.  He married Megan Fox in June 2010 and they have two sons but they recently announced their split.  Green was involved in a car accident which has reportedly affected his ability to work.  Pictured above with Tori Spelling in 1992 and ex wife Megan Fox in 2013.

Lindsay Price

She's photographed above with co-star Ian Zierling, and this year at the Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball.

Tiffani Thiessen

Tiffani played Valerie Malone.  She married actor Brady Smith in 2005 and they have two children.  She has branched out from acting to launch her own line of baby furniture and a to present a cooking show. Here she is in 1994 and last year, exactly 20 years later.

Ian Ziering

Ian played Steve Sanders on 90210.  He married nurse Erin Kristine Ludwig in 2010 and the wedding was attended by several of his 90210 co-stars.  They now have two daughters.  Ian also appeared on Dancing With the Stars and in 2007 he joined the Chippendales in Las Vegas.  Photographed in 1994 and now.

Gabrielle Carteris

Gabrielle played bookish Andrea Zuckerman.  She left the show in 1995 and hosted one season of her own talk show before landing several minor TV roles.  She married Charles Isaacs in 1992 and they have two children. Here she is in 1992 and with Ian Ziering and in May this year.
