I was cast on Beverly Hills, 90210 when it was in its eighth season and no one watched it anymore. Yet, I was still very grateful for the job. I never, ever knocked an opportunity to learn my craft. I did a handful — every single year — I’d do a pilot. You know, a pilot is something that you get that they make, and they only pick up maybe four of them. They probably make 50 of them. So every year, I was thankful enough to get a pilot. Not all of them obviously got picked up, but then I got on 90210, and I was very grateful for the opportunity to continue to learn, even though it was something that was kind of old news. I signed a two-year contract, which is a very big deal. As a working actor, you have that security. I would say security is not the number one thing that most actors have, ’cause you never know what’s going to happen tomorrow. So having a two-year contract was actually wonderful. It gave me the opportunity, like I said, to continue to grown and learn. And about maybe 14 episodes into the first year, I was fired. I remember going in and them saying, “This isn’t really working. It’s not working.” I was devastated. I went home, and I thought, “I’m not good enough for 90210 in the eighth season! What does that say about me?” It’s actually one of those great lessons in trusting fate, because about maybe four months later, I got Boys Don’t Cry, and I wouldn’t have been able to do that, had I not been fired.
