When the stars of early ’90s phenomenon Beverly Hills, 90210 assembled for a reunion at Illinois’ REWindCon, there was one notable absentee. That’s because, due to sad circumstances, Shannen Doherty wasn’t able to make it. But the cast – and Luke Perry in particular – certainly ensured that Doherty wasn’t forgotten about.
And those cast members who appeared at the 2016 nostalgia fest were Jason Priestley (Brandon), Jennie Garth (Kelly), Tori Spelling (Donna) and Luke Perry (Dylan). They were originally all part of the Aaron Spelling-produced hit, which premiered in 1990 and ran for ten whole seasons. The show additionally shot both Priestley and Perry to bona fide teen idol status.
And during the series’ run, Perry was also part of an on-screen power couple. Indeed, his brooding bad boy character Dylan McKay was involved in an on-off relationship with Shannen Doherty’s Brenda Walsh for several years. The pair appeared to split up for good in the third season, however, following a love triangle involving Brenda’s best friend Kelly Taylor.
