Beverly Hills, 90210 Stars: Then and Now

For Beverly Hills, 90210 fans, this is truly the best of times and the worst of times: There's sadness over the loss of Luke Perry, most recently of Riverdale, who died Monday at age 52, and hope for the just-announced new 90210 series to feature members of the original cast.

Here's a look at back at 15 of the show's 1990s standouts -- and a look at where these stars are today:
