At the age of 18, Jennie Garth landed the role of "Kelly Taylor" on Beverly Hills, 90210. At that time, neither she nor the other stars including Shannen Doherty knew just how popular the series would become. But due to its massive success, Garth and her castmates became stars known around the world.
Jennie Garth also starred in Beverly Hills, 90210 spin-offs
Garth also had a few guest appearances as "Kelly" on the series Melrose Place. Then, eight years after the end of 90210, she slipped back into her leading role, reprising it in the first of several spin-off series.
The 90210 spin-off ran from 2008 to 2010 and brought fans back to Beverly Hills. But the actress was also able to prove her talent in other productions. She was not only seen in the films A Loss of Innocence and Holidaze, but also she took on roles in the TV series What I Like About You and Mystery Girls.
In 2019, another reboot titled BH90210 aired and Garth played herself in it. She also worked as a producer on the show, but it was canceled after just one season. But that's still hasn't been the end of 90210 work for Garth: Since November 2020, she's had a podcast called 9021OMG together with her co-star Tori Spelling. On the podcast, they discuss their days on the hit series.
Jennie Garth is happily married to husband Dave
In her private life, Jennie Garth was lucky enough to meet husband Dave Abrams, whom she married in July 2015. Since then, there have been rumours of separation, but the couple are still officially together. The actress was previously married to musician Daniel Clark and to actor Peter Facinelli.
Garth has three daughters with Facinelli. She's also an animal welfare advocate who works with PETA and is a staunch vegetarian. Catch up with the rest of the original Beverly Hills, 90210 cast here!
