Actor David Gail who played a boyfriend of “Brenda” on the popular 1990’s show ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ has died at 58-years-old.
“Brenda” was of course played by actress Shannen Doherty.
Gail also acted in the ‘General Hospital’ spinoff ‘Port Charles.’
A Touching Tribute from His Sister
David Gail, who played Stuart Carson on Beverly Hills, 90210 and also appeared on other ’90s shows such as the General Hospital spinoff Port Charles, has died, according to multiple outlets. He was 58.
The actor’s death was confirmed by his sister, Katie Colmenares, who wrote on Instagram on Saturda, “There’s barely been even a day in my life when you were not with me by my side. Always my wingman always my best friend ready to face anything and anyone w me.”
Colmenares continued her post remembering her late brother, “I will hold you so tight every day in my heart you gorgeous loving amazing fierce human being missing you every second of every day forever.”
She added, “There will never be another.”
ENews reported, “Gail, a native of Tampa, Fla., made his onscreen acting debut on a 1990 episode of Growing Pains. He later appeared on shows such as Doogie Howser M.D. with Neil Patrick Harris and Murder, She Wrote with the late Angela Lansbury before he was cast on Beverly Hills, 90210.”
‘Shannen was great’
The story continued:
He made his debut on the show in 1991, playing a hotel bellhop named Tom. He later returned to the series in 1994 as recurring character Stuart, a love interest of Shannen Doherty’s character Brenda Walsh. After a blind date and a whirlwind weeks-long romance, the two get engaged, to the dismay of her ex-boyfriend Dylan McKay, played by Luke Perry—who died at age 52 in 2019. Stuart and Brenda almost elope in Las Vegas but ultimately go their separate ways.
“Shannen was great,” Gail said on the Beverly Hills 90210 Show Podcast in 2021. “We got along great and we had a really good relationship. We talked about the scenes, we worked on them and it was fun.”
The cause of Gail’s death has not been released.
But it appears he accomplished a lot in his nearly six decades with us.
