Feature length films released on the big screen might still be the more lucrative way of earning money as an actor or actress; but there is no doubt that the small screen (television) has brought so many aspiring actors and actresses fame and financial success, especially those whose pursuit of a career began in the golden age of television. One of those people, is Trevor Donovan, an actor and model who made his name on the CW show, 90210.
Trevor has now gone on to star in over 30 films and television shows since his debut in 2004 but he can always look at his role on 90210 as Teddy Montgomery as the ax that broke the ground on his career. For fans of the actor, here is a look at more details about his biography and career.
Who is Trevor Donovan?
On the 11th of October, 1978, Trevor Donovan Neubauer was born in Bishop, California. Although the identities of his parents are unknown at the moment, Trevor is believed to have been born to a German-Jewish family. He has one known sibling, Jake Donovan.
Trevor was raised in Mammoth Lakes, California, growing up with several diverse interests. Before his primary occupation became acting, Trevor grew up skiing and snowboarding. His commitment to skiing as a young man was so great that he had a semi-professional career as a member of the US teen ski team.
Due to his diverse interests, Trevor was very involved in other sports, including basketball; but he was also a man who had a strong interest in the arts, as a result, Trevor knows how to play the guitar and he can sing. For his education, he studied graphic design at college, earning a bachelor’s degree in the subject from Art Institute of Los Angeles.
Despite his diverse interests and capabilities, Trevor eventually settled to pursue a career in acting. How exactly Trevor came to settle into the profession is unknown but he got his first acting credit in 2004, appearing as a waiter on an episode of the television show, Quintuplets.
An interesting fact to learn Trevor Donovan is that he was a model before he became a full-time actor and he also has a bulldog named Tito Pequito.
It is fitting that Trevor Donovan got his first acting debut on television as it would later become the medium that will earn him his popularity. Before he achieved fame when he was cast as Teddy Montgomery on 90210 in 2009, Trevor Donovan appeared in a few other shows, including making his debut on the big screen.
Following his debut in 2004, Trevor had to wait three years before he earned his second credit as Jeremy Horton on another television show, Days of Our Lives. He made his feature-length debut in 2009 on the film, Surrogates. When he was cast as Teddy Montgomery in 90210, Trevor was originally cast as a recurring character on the show before he was upgraded to a series regular due to the popularity of his character and the show’s direction.

Is He Gay?
Trevor Donovan’s notable character in 90210, Teddy Montgomery, came out as gay in the third season of the show and ever since, this has led to speculation about the sexual orientation of the actor.

Who is His Wife, If Married?
Amidst speculation of his sexuality, we can confirm that he has never been married.
