‘Summerland’ Actor Reunites With Old Friends

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – For Summerland actor Shawn Christian, there’s nothing like reuniting with old friends and co-workers.

That’s the word from Christian – best known for his role as Lori Loughlin’s boyfriend, Johnny Durant, in Summerland – who says after living the Hollywood lifestyle, it’s nice to get away once in a while and catch up with old pals.

Says Christian: “I’m originally from Michigan and when I go back, I like hanging out with my old high school buddies at the local bar, which hasn’t changed since I left. It feels good catching up with them.”

And while hanging with his childhood crew is always fun, Christian enjoys reuniting with old co-stars too.

Turns out, while recently guest starring on the Lifetime series Side Order of Fun, Christian ran into the show’s star, Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Jason Priestly, who Christian knew from his own stint on the 90’s high school drama.

He explains, “I played Donna’s [Tori Spelling] surfer boyfriend on 90210 about eight years ago, and I met Jason in passing back then, because all my scenes took place in Donna’s bedroom. It was really cool to get reintroduced to Jason again now on such a different project.”

Christian’s guest episode on Side Order of Life airs this Sunday (Aug. 26).
