Last month, news leaked about an upcoming “90210” storyline involving a current male character- Liam (Matt Lanter), Navid (Michael Steger) or Teddy (Trevor Donovan) — who would turn out to be gay.
Considering Liam and Naomi were doing it every chance they got at the beach club and Navid was totally into Adrianna, the obvious choice seemed to be Teddy, but nothing was ever confirmed.
This week, Justjared.com was able to confirm the rumor and announced that Broadway star Kyle Riabko has recently signed on to play Teddy’s love interest on “90210”. Kyle has not only starred in “Spring Awakening” and “Hair” on the Great White Way, but he is also a pop star in Canada.
This is probably news to the cast as well. In July, AnnaLynne McCord said the the guys on the show didn’t even know which one of them was going to be playing the gay character next season. “Of course the guys [were] like, ‘What’s going on?,” she joked. “We actually don’t know as a cast …They won’t tell us because when this got leaked they freaked out and they’re like, ‘Alright sorry, you guys aren’t going to know.'”
Now that we know it is Teddy, we also know it will mean some serious drama in the halls of West Bev this fall. It will for sure through Silver into a tailspin, and may even answer some of those questions about Teddy’s boarding school past.
What do you think about this new storyline? Are you looking forward to it?
