Trevor Donovan reflects on his “90210″ character coming out and taking Marco to the prom

http://www.ontopmag.com/images/ArticleImages/90210_teddy_prom_king.gifIt’s one thing to have gay characters on television shows, but it’s all the more wonderful when those characters are played by thoughtful actors – gay or straight – who understand the impact their role can have on viewers.
That brings us to Trevor Donovan who plays Teddy on 90210. We don’t see near enough of Teddy but what we have seen this season has been terrific and Donovan’s performance has been thoughtful and believable.
Donovan talked to EW.com recently about Teddy and noted that as more gay teens appear onscreen, more real-life adolescents are realizing that there shouldn’t be anything taboo about homosexuality.
“I think that’s why the bullying does happen, and the teasing,” he said. “People bully and tease about things they don’t understand, that they’re scared of. So this is enlightening people and bringing it into the mainstream… I think it’s important to educate people, and I’m proud to be part of it.”
He also revealed that Teddy will take another huge step toward accepting his sexuality in 90210‘s big prom episode, which airs May 9.
“Teddy ends up taking Marco,” he said. “It’s become a very acceptable thing. So it’s actually a very positive episode.”
