Exclusive: A Quick Chat With 90210’s Trevor Donovan

23 03 2010

I had the privilege of recently catching up with 90210’s Trevor Donovan via e-mail. The three big take-aways from our conversation: you can keep calling him Ken, don’t be afraid to (respectfully) approach him on the street and, oh yeah, tune into the show!

TeenDramaWhore: When you joined the show over the summer, did you have any idea Teddy would still be around all these months later?

Trevor Donovan: I wasn’t sure. I was just having a great time working with the cast.

TDW: Will you be back for season 3?

Donovan: Stay tuned.

TDW: What’s been the easiest thing about working on 90210 and what’s been the hardest?

Donovan: Easiest: well, working with such great cast mates. Hardest: being so close to the beach and not be able to surf.

TDW: There’s two things we know are coming up for Teddy: more interaction with Silver [Jessica Stroup] and Teddy’s father, Spence [Ryan O'Neal], comes to town. Can you tell us what to expect with those?

Donovan: Expect good things.  Love Jessica Stroup… she’s amazing.

TDW: The show has shown its philanthropic side by collaborating with Habitat for Humanity and Warriors in Pink. What were those experiences like for you?

Donovan: A lot of fun.  Am looking forward to doing more..

TDW: In an episode earlier this season, Ivy [Gillian Zinser] jokingly told Teddy not to tweet about her relationship with Liam [Matt Lanter]. As an actor, what value do you think Twitter has?

Donovan: Well, it is such a random thing… if I think of it, I’ll text a tweet.

TDW: A lot of people have looked at you this past year and compared you to a Ken doll. Compliment or insult?

Donovan: Ken is world-known and treated his lady (Barbie) pretty well, as far as I know….so, I’ll take it as a compliment.

TDW: Have you had any interesting fan encounters?

Donovan: Every one of them. I really like meeting fans.

TDW: What’s one thing people don’t know about you?

Donovan: I sing and play guitar.

TDW: What other projects are you working on?

Donovan: Right now I’m taking a vacation and helping out my Mom on the house. Stayed tuned for future projects. Thanks for chatting. I hope you guys enjoy the rest of season 2 of 90210. Keep watching!

Come back Sunday for another exclusive interview!
