In the Lifetime TV movie, The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story, fans can get a behind-the-scenes look at their favorite teens from The Peach Pit. According to this take, everyone on the set was nice except Shannon Doherty who played the raven-haired Brenda. One of the most interesting tidbits revealed is that, at the time, actor Jason Priestley who played Brandon, Brenda’s brother, was living with actor Brad Pitt. Priestley got his 90210 role right around the time Pitt got his Thelma & Louise role.
The actor playing actor Jason Priestley is Max Lloyd-Jones. The 24-year-old was born in London. He’s best known for his roles in The Sandlot, Restless Virgins, and Flicka: Country Pride. He’s currently starring in the TV series When Calls the Heart on The Hallmark Channel with Jack Wagner (who as a younger man was on Aaron Spelling’s Melrose Place). The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story will premiere on Lifetime on October 3 at 8pm. It will air again on October 4 at 12am, 8pm, and 11pm.
