Shannen Doherty: Honored by Beverly Hills, 90210 Cast

by at .

As Shannen Doherty continues to battle breast cancer, it will hopefully be heartening for the actress to know what she isn't going it alone.

The star knows, of course, that she has her husband by her side.

In celebration of their five-year anniversary, Doherty and Kurt Iswarienko jetted down to Mexico last month, documenting aspects of the trip for fans on social media.

But Doherty also has the backing of a couple former Beverly Hills, 90210 castmates.

Over the weekend, Jennie Garth (Kelly), Luke Perry (Dylan) Jason Priestley (Brandon) and Tori Spelling (Donna) got together for REWindCon in Bloomingdale, Illinois, interacting with fans and speaking at panels during the convention.

Due to her chemotherapy treatments, Doherty was unable to attend.

But that didn't mean she was far from the hearts and minds of all who were there.

“None of us are up here today without Shannen,” said Perry, who was refreshingly honest about her past reputation.

“She’s been through a lot. She’s not doing well right now, but sometimes her contributions are minimized.

"She’s been thrown under the bus. I’ve been accused of driving it. But she’s a very big part of the success of this show. She taught me a lot.

"I’m glad she was my scene partner. She was great at what she did in the character with me."

Then there was Jennie Garth.

She was also accused back in the day of feuding with Doherty.

But that was a long time ago.

The actress paid tribute to Doherty on Instagram soon after the event, posting the words “Fight like a Brenda” on social media, alongside a moving post about her friend and ex co-star’s strength.

“To my soul sister @theshando strongest lady i've ever known. then and now. i used to be threatened by your spirit, now i'm in awe of it,” Garth wrote.

“You've taught me a lot about speaking my mind and not being afraid of my power.

"i'm so grateful that young me got to be friends with you. but especially ‘old’ me! the best is yet to come on this crazy journey!! love you! #fightlikeagirl #fightlikebrenda #aries.”

Doherty reposted Jennie's message after reading it, adding as her own caption:

"I'm so proud of this friendship and the mutual respect and admiration we have for each other."

Beverly Hills, 90210 concluded 16 years ago, but the influence of the series remains.

Aside from Doherty, where are different cast members now?
