90210 returns Tuesday, September 13 on The CW, and earlier this week I had the opportunity to speak with one of the show's stars, Michael Steger, who portrays Navid Shirazi. Steger revealed to me what's in store for his character during the fourth season of the popular series.
Now that the cast is moving on from high school to the adult world of responsibilities, Steger provided some insight into his character, Navid.
"He's much more of a man than he used to be. He's really found his people, he's found his friends, he's found his circle of trust. He's a smarter person for it. He's much better at knowing who his allies are. He's just a much more mature guy," he explained.
So, what does season four have in store for Navid?
Towards the end of last season, Navid and his girlfriend Silver, played by Jessica Stroup, had been on the outs with one another, due to Adrianna's devious ways, but managed to rekindle their romance. Kicking off season four, Steger says the couple is "really strong."
"Navid and Silver move in together and they start working together," he revealed. "They both have offices at Shirazi production office; they’re right next to each other. They’re really thrilled to be working with each other."
The big news this season is that Navid and Silver take on the role of being parents, but it's not what you think.
"My sister ends up asking me if she can live me, so she can finish her last year of high school before she goes to Switzerland. I’m very reluctant, because all I want to do is be alone with Silver and focus on the relationship," Steger says speaking from his character's perspective.
"I finally give in and Silver finally gives in to let her live with us. My sister ends up being really hard to deal with, so it forces Navid and Silver to kind of be parents. There's a lot of ridiculous circumstances that unfold from there."
