An Interview with Ian

Due to our mild nostalgic obsession with all things 90210 (oh c'mon, you totally raced home from school to watch the reruns, too!), we were psyched when our pals at BuddyTV gave us the heads-up on their brand-new interview with Steve Sanders, er, Ian Ziering. In case you weren't paying attention the first trillion times Sarah, Caryn and I told you about Ian's latest role -- which is hard to believe -- Ian is intending to steam up your TV screen on this season's Dancing with the Stars. Check out two of our favorite questions from the interview, and click here to read the whole thing.

Looking back on your whole time (during 90210), what are the big moments for you?

I think when Brian and I visited Spain and there were 11,000 people waiting in the airport for us. I mean, you know, we work in a studio and go home at the end of the day and you know the show is successful and you see the ratings but you don't really get an understanding of the impact - how much it affects people not just here in this country but all over the world - until you travel out there. Brian and I were just blown away by the reception we got there. We went to Italy and it was the same thing. I've been to Japan and it's nuts, it's really very flattering. I'm really very proud to be a part of a project that has touched so many people in such a positive way. I'm very lucky.

How would you describe your dancing experience, how are you up there?

How am I up there? I've been blessed with some rhythm, you know, certainly no ballroom skills. But I've got a great teacher. Cheryl Burke is amazing. She's very patient - which, thank god for that because I keep stepping on my own toes - and is able to communicate in a way that I understand and to show me. I learn best by seeing. She could tell me left right left right right, but until I see her implement what she's telling me about, I don't get it, but once she does I am able to grasp onto it and you know, ultimately I'd like to gain mastery of it and make it look easy and I'm not there yet that's for sure (laughs).
