Following his turn as sideburned Brandon Walsh, B.C. native Jason Priestley indulged in his passion for racecar driving, which almost became fatal when a 2003 crash left him severely injured. As an actor, Priestley has appeared in numerous roles in film and TV, including starring in short-lived CBS sitcom 'Love Monkey' and miniseries 'Everest', and recently completed a four-season run in 'Call Me Fitz.' It's behind the camera, however, where Priestley's ambitions lie; in addition to directing episodes of 'Rookie Blue', 'The Night Shift', 'Working the Engels' and Saving Hope', he also directed the 2013 drama 'Cas & Dylan', starring Tatiana Maslany and Richard Dreyfuss.

Following '90210', the erstwhile Steve Sanders appeared in a series of unmemorable TV movies (Tyrannosaurus Azteca, anyone?) and guest starring appearances on such series as 'CSI: NY', 'Happily Divorced' and 'That's My Boy'. In 2013, with his wife pregnant, he decided to take the lead role in a terrible made-for-TV movie just so he could quality for Screen Actors Guild health insurance. That movie was 'Sharknado', which became a pop-culture phenomenon that has so far spawned two sequels, with Ziering starring in both. The success of 'Sharknado' led to joining Donald Trump in the boardroom for 'Celebrity Apprentice' , and it's a safe bet we'll be seeing him battle more flying sharks next summer in 'Sharknado 4'.
