Watch out West Beverly! Brenda Walsh and Kelly Taylor are officially on the same turf!
Fourteen years after saying goodbye to Dylan McKay and the Peach Pit, Shannen Doherty
's alter ego Brenda is back
at West Beverly High School. Much to the delight of diehard fans and the new cast alike, Aug. 7 was Doherty's first day on set.
"Shannen Doherty's first day is right now actually, she's shooting," Annalynn McCord
, who plays the newest 90210
vixen Naomi, told PEOPLE at the EA Sports/XBOX premiere of Madden NFL '09 Thursday. "I can't wait to meet Shannen, I really like her!"
However it's Brenda's frenemy, Kelly Taylor, whom McCord's character Naomi most resembles. "They kind of made my character a little like the girl who thinks she's Kelly Taylor - spoiled little rich girl," said McCord, who insisted the "very sweet" Jennie Garth
is nothing like the pouty princess she plays onscreen. Despite never seeing an episode of the original cult classic, McCord also said the CW show is "a new spin on an old thing."
If that's the case, tune in Sept. 2 to find out what the new and old gang are up to-and more importantly, if Brenda and Kelly are still fighting over the same guys!
