Trevor Donovan, who plays all-American
jock Teddy Montgomery on the CW's 90210, says he believes he's
making a difference in people's lives.
Teddy has been conflicted with his
sexual orientation since the nighttime teenage drama premiered the
first episode of its third season. In an early scene, Teddy
throws-up after a date with current flame Ian, played by Canadian pop
singer Kyle Riabko.
Producers, however, appear to be
planning a happy ending for Teddy, who
is expected to be paired up with Marco, played by Freddie Smith.
an interview with gay male entertainment website AfterElton.com,
Donovan says he's not only comfortable with his gay role but adds
that he believes he's doing some good.
“I am so pleasantly surprised with
the reaction and people have been so supportive. I love my job, I
truly, passionately love what I do, but when you read comments and
messages on Facebook or on the blogs or on your website, and they are
tear-jerking messages that are so heartfelt and I really feel like
I'm making a difference in people's lives, and it just makes my job
so much fulfilling,” Donovan said.

Gets Better project.
