Trevor Donovan (born Trevor Donovan Neubauer on October 11, 1978)[1][2][3] is an American model and actor. He is known for his fan favorite role as Teddy Montgomery on the international hit teen drama television series 90210.

Life and career[edit]

Donovan was born in Bishop, California, and raised in Mammoth Lakes, California.[4] He had short stints in 2007 on the NBC daytime soap Days of Our Lives as Jeremy Horton. He had a minor role in the 2009 sci-fi film Surrogates, that of the Surrogate form of Tom Greer (Bruce Willis).

In June 2009, Donovan landed a recurring role on 90210 as Teddy Montgomery,[5] first appearing on September 8, 2009.[6] On May 20, 2010, The CW announced that he was upgraded to series regular.[7] It was later reported that his character would come out as gay in the third season, which premiered on September 13, 2010.[8]

In July 2011, it was reported that Donovan had been signed for a role in Oliver Stone's film Savages, released in July 2012.[9] He had originally screen-tested for a character who was edited out, but after seeing Donovan's screen-test video recording, Stone wrote a part for him that was not in the original book.[10] After 90210 ended, Donovan landed a recurring role in the third season of Melissa & Joey, a situation comedy that starred Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence as the two main characters.[11]
