“Beverly Hills, 90210” actress Gabrielle Carteris turns 59
Born in Scottsdale, Arizona on January 2, 1961, Gabrielle Carteris, of Greek ancestry, still is mostly remembered for playing the role of the teen student Andrea Zuckerman on Beverly Hills, 90210. The role offered Carteris visibility and success on the TV hit series that started in 1990, but though she was playing a 15 year old, she was already 29, making her the oldest cast member at the time to portray a teenager. Despite her age during the 1980’s and early 1990’s, Gabrielle was usually cast as a teenager; some of her earliest appearances were during the 1980’s on ABC Afterschool Specials, CBS Schoolbreak Special and the soap opera Another World. The big break came with the role of Andrea Zuckerman, a studious school newspaper editor on Beverly Hills, 90210. A worldwide hit, the series were a successful breakthrough for most of the featured young cast, including Luke Perry and Jason Priestley. Despite the success of the series, at age 34 in 1995, Gabrielle left it and became the host of her own television talk show, entitled Gabrielle, which lasted only one season. Ever since, and as most of her Beverly Hills 90210 peers, her career has been made of significantly smaller roles on movies and TV. In 2000 she provided the voice for the Motorola intelligent assistant “Mya”, a project abandoned by the electronics brand in 2002. Among some of the TV series she has appeared throughout the years are Angel, King of the Hill, NYPD Blue, JAG, Criminal Minds, and N.C.I.S. In 2016 Gabrielle became the President of the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, while also serving as vice president of the California Labor Federation. Recently in 2019, she joined the original cast of Beverly Hills, 90210 for the series revival, reprising her role of Andrea Zuckerman. Today she turns 59.
