Beverly Hills, 90210 star Jason Priestley has accepted his role in the popular teen drama will always be his most famous, despite insisting the show was just "one stop along the way".
The actor played Brandon Walsh for nine years in the hugely successful high school series, which ran for 10 seasons and made him a global star alongside Shannen Doherty and Tori Spelling.
However, Priestley admits he still can't understand why that character remains his most famous, especially as the show was panned by critics.
He tells The Sydney Daily Telegraph, "That was one nine-year chunk of my life and of my career - I had a pretty successful career before that, and I've had a pretty successful career after that. It was one stop along the way.
"It was the predecessor for a lot of these younger-skewed shows that are on TV now. And we got lambasted by every critic. It was a critical disaster, but for some reason it resonated with a lot of people.
"The thing with playing an iconic character like Brandon Walsh is if people always remember me for that, that's fine. It's nothing I can get upset about."
