Trevor Donovan Talks About His Gay Character -- EXCLUSIVE

Trevor Donovan shows Just Jared a little love at the Breakthrough of the Year Awards presented by Crest 3D White at the Pacific Design Center on Sunday (August 15) in West Hollywood, Calif.

Here’s what the rising actor had to share exclusively with JustJared.com:

On his character going gay on 90210: “It was cool when they came to me with it, I was honored, flattered that they thought I could take on something like this and handle it in the way it’s being written and what we shot so far is done very, very smart, very intelligent. It’s really going to deal with his inner turmoil, the battle, and the struggles for self acceptance that I don’t think gets addressed enough.”

On his female fans being heartbroken: “It’s not an immediate thing and it’s not a cut and dry situation; there’s going to be a gray area, a transition.”

On Proposition 8 getting overturned: “I think it’s great that they are going back and revisiting it. To me it’s a no brainer, it’s like, why would there even be a question. There are traditions people hold fast to those things, and some people are scared of change, and to me it’s not change, it’s just people.”
