Interview with Ian Ziering

Ian Ziering is best know to all as the always scheming Steve Sanders from the television series “Beverly Hills 90210”. Movie Mikes’ Adam Lawton got a chance to talk with Ian at this years Chiller Theatre convention and got a chance to ask him about his career and his upcoming spoof movie “The Legend of Awesomest Maximus”.

Adam Lawton: Can you tell us what it was like working with such a beautiful cast on “90210”?
Ian Ziering: Any time you get to work with great people is always good and I got to work with such a great cast and they are like brothers and sisters to me.

AL: You got to work with fellow “90210” cast mate Brian Austin Green in the movie “Domino” can you tell us about that?
IZ: Anytime I get to work with a fellow cast mate from that show it’s like a double bonus. Brian’s a great guy and a fantastic actor and the fact we got to work together on a Tony Scott picture was just an incredible experience.

AL: Can you tell us a little bit about your upcoming character Testiclees in “The Legend of Awesomest Maximus”?
IZ: Well it’s a spoof movie and he is the world’s greatest gladiator but his Achilles tendon is well you guess. But about six months prior to the role I had started training and conditioning and got down to around 11% body fat and I immediately booked that role and it was a great opportunity to take my shirt off when I am in the best condition of my life.

AL: You look pretty sharp right now….
IZ: Oh well thank you, I know you mean that in the gayest way (laughs) so I will take that as a compliment.

AL: OK to wrap up what’s your favorite “90210” episode?
IZ: Probably when Steve’s corvette gets stolen or when he was the pizza delivery boy and rents the Walsh house out for a porn movie production.
