An eloquent tribute to Mrs. Teasley.

One day after actress Denise Dowse passed away, the actress’ Beverly Hills 90210 co-star Ian Ziering took to social media to express his “heartbreak” and honor the special relationship he had with his onscreen high school vice principal.

“During all of my years working on Beverly Hills 90210“My scenes with Denise are forever remembered with the greatest respect for her talent and affection for her loving soul,” he shared on Instagram Aug. 14 with a picture of himself with Denise on set. She and I had some of the most heartfelt off-camera laughs, as we worked out how Mrs. Teasley would discipline my Steve Sanders.

Ian, age 58 sent his heartfelt message to actress “family” and to all those who were dear to her.

He added, “God bless you Denise, pay forward that Legacy Key,” playfully referencing a memorable storyline between their two characters.
