Playing Erin Silver, the half-sister of original 90210 characters Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth) and David Silver (Brian Austin Green), Jessica Stroup is really the bridge between old 9-0 and new 9-0, and she couldn’t be more psyched. Listen in as we speak about lack of sleep, Silver’s online blog, the alcoholic mom she inherited from Kel and more…
The show premieres tonight. Excited?
I can’t believe it. It’s been such a long wait, shooting and not sleeping. Our launch party was last weekend and I feel like we were all in a haze because we had just shot an 18-hour day into the morning. I got maybe two hours of sleep before the party. So now that it’s actually [going to be on the air], I’m so stoked.
I was at the party, nobody looked like they’d been shooting all night.
Yes, the beauty of makeup. That’s what it’s all about. The beauty of concealer.
So how do you like playing Silver?
I love it. This is probably the most fun I’ve ever had with a character. She’s so different than other roles I’ve had, especially since I’m working on a show that’s just beginning and I’m getting to develop a character that I have input in. It’s been a challenge, but it’s been such a fun challenge. She’s funky and funny and there are so many different facets to her. It’s something I can be creative with and try something new every day.
