Gabrielle Carteris

  1. Shannen Doherty, Beverly Hills 90210, TV, 1990-1994.   Carteris was comfortable auditioning as Brenda Walsh, feeling she had a great chance of winning Jason Priestley’s twin sister because she was, herself, a twin sister. But no… She was given Andrea Zuckerman for 147 episodes  (and returned for six more in the 2019 reboot, BH90210).  Poor Gabrielle was media-trounced for playing a high schoolgirl at age 29.  She got her own back. When elected president of the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, she worked on a state law, requiring entertainment websites and databases to remove actors’ ages if they requested it.
