Jennie Garth Speaks on Dylan Development

at . Comments

The most exciting development from last night's 90210 episode, of course, was that Dylan McKay is the father of Kelly's son, Sammy.

Jennie Garth spoke to People Magazine about the spilled secret after the show aired last night. Here are highlights from the interview:

What did you think when they told you Dylan was going to be the father?
It was very confusing for me because initially the idea of having a son was my idea. I thought it would bring a great amount of depth to my character. Then the question came up, ‘Well, who’s the father?’ And I really hadn’t thought it through that far. So, I was like, Oh, I guess need one of those. It’s gone back and forth: Who and what and when and why? I think they settled on Dylan because Kelly and Dylan had such a passionate relationship in the past. Their relationship was so heated. It was kind of undeniable.

Any chance Dylan will show up in a cameo?
I would love to work with Luke [Perry] again. I love him dearly. And I also would love to work with Jason [Priestley] again. It’s a great question for the producers. I would be nothing but totally happy to have either of them there.

Talk about this development now on our 90210 forum!

The producers should bring Luke Perry and Jason Priestly back, that wil definitely pull up rating for the show.


Will any of the old cast members be coming back other than Donna or Dylan?


In the interview with Jennie Garth she says that Dylan is the father. Also, Kelly referenced high school when was telling Ryan about the daddy. Kelly dated Dylan in high school and Brandon in college.


I agree with you! Dylan was never named as Sammy's dad it still is not 100%. Has anyone heard if Shannon has signed on for more episodes?


OMG! OMG! OMG! ; ) Each time Kelly and Brenda had any interaction I was on the edge of my loveseat last night. Up until the very moment when Kelly’s baby daddy was “revealed� my guess was Brandon Walsh. Honestly, I have been undecided since the new 90210 series opener, but I started gravitating more towards Brandon. And last night, my choice seem solidified especially when Kelly tells potential love interest, Mr. Matthews that Sammy’s dad is ½ way across the world doing charity work – Hello!....that sounds like Brandon Walsh in Belize to me!!!! So, how does everyone reach the conclusion that Dylan’s the baby daddy just because Brenda tells Kelly: “You're never gonna be happy with someone else because you're still in love with Dylan - and you know it!�
No where in Brenda’s line can you make that connection to Dylan. I don’t think the BD is Dylan…. I still think it’s Brandon – Brenda said Kelly couldn’t be happy with someone else b/c she’s in love with Dylan – That doesn’t mean Dylan’s the baby’s daddy though!! It seems as if Kelly allows her love for Dylan to effect the success of new potential relationships and that is totally understandable – Dylan and Kelly were practically joined at the hip in High School – who wouldn’t still have feelings for their 1st true love? Hey, high school loves do count for something!!!! I understand that during the “Kelly – Brenda confrontation�, Brenda tells Kelly that she needs to get her story straight – Could it be that Kelly still cannot get her story straight on her baby’s daddy and doesn’t really know who the father is? Maybe a DNA / Paternity test are in order here!!!! But on a more serious note… via radio show, Luke Perry has announced that he is not coming back to do 90210, and via People Magazine, Ian Ziering has stated that he isn’t returning to his old zip code – so that only leaves one guy ….. BRANDON WALSH!!!!!! I am still rooting for Brandon Walsh to be Sammy’s dad! ~ I ♥ 90210 ; )
