Interview with Michael Steger

Michael Steger is known best for his role of Navid Shirazi on The CW’s “90210”. The show is already entering its fourth season this Fall and Media Mikes had a chance to chat with Michael about what we can expect.

Mike Gencarelli: How do you feel your character has grown going now into the 4th season of “90210”?
Michael Steger: I am so surprised as to where Navid has ended up. I had no idea he was going to end up running a huge production company. I thought he was going to be a journalist and be the next Anderson Cooper. A lot of the change has been good for Navid and I love what they are thinking.

MG: Are we going to see more music production between you and Dixon?
MS: You definitely are going to see a lot of the music side throughout the show. I do partner up with Dixon at one point as he is doing more of the producing. There is going to be a lot more behind the scenes stuff going on that Navid has to figure out in order to run a successful business.

MG: What can we expect to see relationship wise for Navid?
MS: There is still a friendship between Navid and Adrianna however it has been damaged. At the start of the season you will see Adrianna try and redeem herself however Navid is not having any of it. I think it will be a long time before those to reconcile their differences. As for Navid’s relationship with Silver they do move in together and I feel they are the best match for each other.

MG: How do you feel about the cast being trimmed back this season?
MS: We were all a little bummed to find out certain people weren’t going to be but at the same time we are excited because they are going to going other work outside of  “90210”.

MG: What do you think makes this season stand out prior to the previous three seasons?
MS: We are going to be exploring the world outside of high school. There are so many more story lines now that we aren’t confined to that one place. We are all out in the real world trying to be adults. Our audience has grown along with the cast over the four years as well so we want to keep everything in relation to where our viewers may be.

MG: How far in advance do you the scripts prior to shooting and how far are you into filming of season four?
MS: We have started to get the scripts a lot earlier than we have in the past. We have just started shooting the eight episode of this season.

MG: Any cool behind the scenes news you can share with us about the season?
MS: Navid and Silver end in parental roles this season. Neither one of them is quite sure how to handle it nor what to do so there’s a lot of chaos.  This season is going to be a lot of fun!
