Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A buff, blonde actor best known for his role of spoiled playboy Steve Sanders on Aaron Spelling's teen drama "Beverly Hills 90210" (Fox, 1990-2000), Ian Ziering rose to fame as part of the iconic West Beverly bunch that included then stars-in-the-making, Luke Perry, Jason Priestley and Shannon Doherty. Prior to his decade-long run in that glamorous zip code, Ziering enjoyed a three-year run on "Guiding Light" (CBS, 1952- ) and a moderate career in musical theater and television commercials. After the iconic Spelling production wrapped, Ziering never quite found his way back to his "90210" career heights, though a featured role in Ridley Scott's action film "Domino" (2005) gave his long dormant profile a boost. His tempestuous marriage to Playboy Playmate-turned-reality-TV-star, Nikki Ziering also kept him in the tabloid news, but his "Domino" role, where he portrayed a caricature of himself, put viewers on notice that he was able to handle a higher form of ironic comedy, as well as hold his own in a fight sequence.

Notes

"The reality on the show pretty much mirrors the way life is all over, in terms of teenagers....There's a mystique about Beverly Hills. But that's not what keeps people tuning in. The show could have been 'Montana E-I-E-I-O'."--Ziering, speaking about "Beverly Hills 90210" (quoted in PEOPLE, September 9, 1991)

Ziering is also happy about his role on the show: "I feel the writers are SO capable--and I'm not just blowing sunshine up anybody's tush!" (quoted in ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, September 6, 1991)
