Like TV wife Megan Boone, Ryan got his start on the stage, beginning in high school, and later in college.
The show is brighter, sunnier, all around more Californian.
At dinner that night it's Annie, Naomi, Ethan, Jason, Silver and Dixon -- the latter two are the only ones not feeling super awkward.
Naomi keeps talking about how her and Ethan dated and asks Jason questions about Annie.
Though the memoir is not as deeply "tell-all" as some fanatics might have hoped, he does offer some fun tidbits on first loves, not-yet-famous friends and on-set shenanigans, six of which are recapped here: Priestley's first love was Holly Robinson (Peete).
The two met in the makeup trailer while shooting , which Robinson was starring in when young Priestley, a high school senior and five years her junior, was cast in an episode. The feeling was apparently mutual as the two dated seriously for some time, flying back and forth between Los Angeles, where Priestley soon moved to pursue a Hollywood career, and Vancouver, where Robinson was shooting.Though the romance eventually ran its course, Priestley has only fond memories, stating, "I could not have asked for a more idyllic first love." Brad Pitt was just a random dude asleep in Priestley's bed when they first met.
