Jason Priestley who played Brandon Walsh in Beverly Hills 90210 has said the series was just one part of his career.

Priestley is currently visiting Sydney with his wife Naomi and children Ava and Dashiell to promote his latest TV show ‘Call me Fritz’.

Jason Priestly90′s heartthrob Jason Priestley has said that Beverly Hills 90210 was just “one nine-year chunk of my life and of my career” adding “if people always remember me for that, that’s fine. It’s nothing I can get upset about”…

“That was one nine-year chunk of my life and of my career – I had a pretty successful career before that, and I’ve had a pretty successful career after that. It was one stop along the way.

It was the predecessor for a lot of these younger-skewed shows that are on TV now. And we got lambasted by every critic. It was a critical disaster, but for some reason it resonated with a lot of people.

The thing with playing an iconic character like Brandon Walsh is if people always remember me for that, that’s fine. It’s nothing I can get upset about.”

Priestly also revealed that he doesn’t spend much time with his former 90210 cast mates, saying…

“I’m still friends with Luke (Perry) and Ian (Ziering) and Brian (Austin Green) but that’s about it. We were just a group of people that worked together.”

The actor is currently visiting Sydney with his wife Naomi and children Ava and Dashiell to promote his latest TV show ‘Call Me Fritz’ which he predicts will be a ratings success in Australia…

“You guys like to swear a lot and give each other the finger a lot of the time and those are the kinds of things that happen a lot on our show.”
