We’re not sure why “90210” continues to downplay brainy Navid’s good looks on the show, because we think that’s asking for a bit too much suspension of disbelief.
Michael Steger, the handsome actor who plays Navid, appeared on The KTLA News Morning Show on Wednesday, Oct. 13 and he talked about Adrianna’s (played by Jessica Lowndes) brand of crazy and how Navid deals with competition for her affection when Joe Jonas guest stars in November on The CW show.
We all know Ade can have her loony moments, but Steger says she has reasons (beyond being blackmailed by Javier’s uncle).
“She has a rough family life, so she’s dealing with a lot more issues,” he explains. “Now, I think she’s becoming a bit more famous, so things get magnified tenfold.”
He also tells us that Navid doesn’t appreciate when pop star, Joe Jonas, drops into the ZIP code. “There’s a whole scene where he’s [Ade’s] date on the red carpet and there’s this moment where I’m just giving him the evilest look.”
When he can get a word in edgewise among the chatty anchors, he adds, “He needs to know who [he shouldn’t] mess with.”
