‘90210’ Star Seeks SAG-AFTRA EVP Position, Roberta Reardon Endorses

Original Beverly Hills 90210 actress and former SAG-AFTRA LA Local co-president Gabrielle Carteris is running for the union’s powerful Executive Vice President job, the actress announced tonight. “As National Executive Vice President of SAG-AFTRA I will work with President Ken Howard, my fellow union leaders and members to help SAG‑AFTRA find its strong common voice,” she said in a statement. The EVP election will take place at SAG-AFTRA’s inaugural convention September 26-29 in LA. It looks like former National co-President Roberta Reardon won’t be seeking the EVP gig as was widely expected. Instead, she has endorsed Carteris. “As we approach the 2014 negotiations, we need Gabrielle’s steady hand and steely determination to help guide our union,” Reardon said Sunday. Reardon narrowly lost a bid to become President of the NYC Local in the union’s recent national election, its first since last year’s merger. Reardon was elected a Local and National Board Member in the vote.
