Jason Priestley as Brandon Walsh

Fun fact: In his 2014 autobiography, Jason Priestley: A Memoir, Priestley admitted that he regretted leaving the series at the beginning of the ninth season, saying he wished he had stayed on through the entire series run. Hel also felt that his decision to leave hurt his personal relationship with the series co-creator and producer, Aaron Spelling.

Shannen Doherty as Brenda Walsh

Fun fact: Doherty was notoriously difficult to work with. According to Jennie Garth, tensions got so bad that they almost got into a physical fight after Doherty pulled Garth's skirt down during a take in order to have her break character. Garth then turned to Doherty and said, "Come on, bitch! We're talking this outside!" but the fight was stopped by Jason Priestley and Luke Perry before any punches were thrown.


Brian Austin Green as David Silver

Fun fact: Before being cast on the series, Green had actually starred in the original pilot for Saved by the Bell, then known as Good Morning, Miss Bliss. He would later appear as himself on Saved by the Bell: The College Years.

Carol Potter as Cindy Walsh

Fun fact: Potter, who was a series regular for five seasons, decided to pursue marriage and family therapy after her contract was not renewed for the show -- though she did guest star several times after the fifth season. She is now a licensed therapist practicing in Los Angeles.

Jennie Garth as Kelly Taylor

Fun fact: Before being cast as Kelly, Garth co-starred with Jason Priestley on the The Mickey Mouse Club serial, "Teen Angel." She also auditioned for the role of Kelly Kapowski on Saved by the Bell; the role of course went to Tiffani Thiessen, who would later join 90210 as Valerie Malone.

Luke Perry as Dylan McKay

Fun fact: Perry originally auditioned for the role of Steve Sanders, and while he didn't get the role, he did make an impression on the producers who later cast him as Dylan. Also the role was created for what supposed to be a two-story arc, but Aaron Spelling liked Perry and the character of Dylan so much that he made him a series regular.
