Jason Priestley sent words of support to his former “Beverly Hills, 90210” co-star Shannen Doherty after she revealed this week her breast cancer has returned.
“I reached out to her yesterday when the news broke,” Priestley told People magazine at the Monte Carlo Television Festival 60th Anniversary Celebration on Wednesday.
The pair starred as Minnesota-bred twins Brenda and Brandon Walsh in the much-loved ’90s series Beverly Hills, 90210.
“She’s overwhelmed with well wishers and with people reaching out to her. I haven’t heard back from her yet, but I’m sure that I will very soon,” he added.
STAGE 4 CANCER: "I definitely have days where I say, 'Why me?' And then I go, 'Well, why not me? Who else besides me deserves this?' None of us do." http://bit.ly/3bbWvR1
“Shannen was a big part of my life,” said Priestley. “Shannen and I will always have a bond that is very meaningful. I’m very heartbroken about the news and I wish her and her family the best in this very difficult time.”
