Before landing his breakout role on Beverly Hills 90210, Green first got a start as a teenager on soap opera Knots Landing, where he played Brian Cunningham for three years.
Green then landed the role of David Silver in Beverly Hills 90210 and stayed with the show for all 10 of its seasons, which totalled 293 episodes.
The show became one of the most popular series in America during the height of its run, particularly amongst teenagers and young adults.
Green, as well as co-stars Luke Perry and Jason Priestley, became teen idols and many shows were created to try and replicate Beverly Hills 90210’s success.
Green reprised his role as Silver in the short-lived reboot, BH90210.
Throughout the 1990s, Green also guest starred on a number of other successful TV shows such as Growing Pains and Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
Green also released a rap album in 1993 entitled One Stop Carnival. It was produced The Pharcyde member, Slimkid3, and received very negative reviews.
Following the end of Beverly Hills 90210, Green’s next regular role was in Freddie Prinze Jr’s sitcom, Freddie, but the show only lasted a year before getting cancelled by ABC.
Green is also known for his roles in shows such as Desperate Housewives and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, where he became a fan favourite.
