Beverly Hills 90210 fans are praising Gabrielle Carteris after her outstanding speech at the SAG Awards last night and reminiscing about Andrea Zuckerman.
Carteris is now the president of SAG-AFTRA. She gave a very moving speech about pay equality, harassment, and abuse in Hollywood during the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Beverly Hills 90210 fans flocked to social media to point out it echoed one her alter ego, Zuckerman, gave during the crew’s graduation from West Beverly High.
Twitter exploded with praise of nostalgia for the inspiring character after Carteris took the stage at the show.
“Watching Gabrielle Carteris deliver her SAG/AFTRA speech and feeling like she's a half-second away from breaking into Andrea's valedictorian speech from '90210' at any point. #SAGawards” Tweeted @Decider.
Another user wrote how fitting it was that Zuckerman grew up to be the president of SAG-AFTRA.
“I will literally never get over how INCREDIBLY RIGHT it is that Andrea Zuckerman is the president of SAG-AFTRA.” wrote @fuggirls, which earned a response from the actress. “I am laughing and smiling as I read this. Thank you!” replied Carteris.
@slade echoed the above sentiment with the Tweet “Andrea Zuckerman growing up to be president of SAG-ATRA is the story that was never written."
Ye,s Beverly Hills 90210 fans came out of the woodwork to make the parallel between Carteris speech with that of Zuckerman’s commencement speech. It is high-praise and an honor for the actress who expressed how much she loved the comparison. In fact, she is thrilled at the comparison and holds her fans remarks in high praise.
It has been 25-years since Andrea Zuckerman took the stage at West Beverly High as she and her friends graduated high school. However, those feeling a little nostalgia for the beloved character can watch Carteris SAG speech and be transformed back to 1993. It truly is incredible how each of these speeches echo each other all of these years later.
