Lori Loughlin Dishes on New Character

by at . Comments

Don't call her Cindy Walsh.

While Lori Loughlin has nothing against the original mother on Beverly Hills, 90210, she says that her character of Debbie Millis is different.

"What I love about my character is she's not just the mom that's home parenting — she's got a career!" Loughlin said. "She's a photographer — she's in the workplace. She was making a move from the Midwest to California, so it's about her adjustment to her new lifestyle."

The Mills clan, as a whole, can easily be contrasted with the Walshes, as well.

"It's not the Walsh [family]," Loughlin said. "It's the same premise in the fact that it is a brother and sister moving from the Midwest to California, but other than that, they're not twins. One is my biological daughter [played by Shenae Grimes].

The other is my adopted son, who is African-American [played by Tristan Wilds]. So it's a contemporary family. It's fitting more of what's happening today in families."
