Beverly Hills, 90210 is one of the most iconic teen dramas in television history that paved the way for newer hits like The O.C., One Tree Hill, and Gossip Girl, and like any teen series, the off-screen relationships were just as dramatic and intense as those on-screen. Over 10 seasons together on TV’s hottest show, the young cast went through a lot, and from romances to flings to friendships there was a lot more happening between the stars than fans realized. With BH90210 bringing many of them back together, take a look at secrets behind Beverly Hills, 90210′s off-screen relationships.
27. Luke Perry and Shannen Doherty’s Friendship
It is no secret that Shannen Doherty had difficulties with almost everyone on the set of Beverly Hills, 90210 before she was eventually removed from the series, but one relationship that was not fractured was between Doherty and Luke Perry. Despite the pair having a steamy on-screen relationship as Brenda Walsh and Dylan McKay, the two stars never dated in real-life. “She’s been thrown under the bus,” Perry said defending Doherty after her reputation in Hollywood went downhill. “I’ve been accused of driving it. But she’s a very big part of the success of this show. 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.”
