BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – In “BH 90210,” Fox’s meta reboot of “Beverly Hills, 90210,” the actors from the original teen drama all play “heightened” versions of their real-world personas. But there was one aspect Shannen Doherty definitely didn’t want heightened: the prevailing public image that she’s a trouble-making villain.
“I’m not the villain,” Doherty said while promoting the new series (Wednesday, 9 EDT/PDT) at the Television Critics Association Wednesday. “I’m the antithesis of that. … I definitely am not interested in being a part of that kind of show.” The meta-series, in which the actors plot their own revival within the show, “is really focused on our friendship(s) … I just want to keep spreading good positive energy into the world as in real life, as does my character.”
