Gabrielle Carteris was elected as the executive vice president of SAG-AFTRA on Sept. 26, 2013 at the union’s inaugural national convention.

 

Carteris became a household name when she landed the role of Andrea Zuckerman on the Aaron Spelling program Beverly Hills, 90210. A show with a shaky beginning, 90210 ended up being one of the longest running one-hour series in television history as well as being viewed in over 100 countries. The success of the show allowed Carteris to get involved with many great organizations, including DARE, Noxzema Extraordinary Teen program, MADD and Read to Grow.

 

Carteris has also worked as a producer, creating a series of specials called Lifestories which led to her producing and hosting her own talk show for Fox, Gabrielle. Recent credits include guest starring roles on Criminal Minds, Make It or Break It, The Event, Longmire, The Middle and the recent holiday television movie, 12 Christmas Wishes.

 

Carteris previously served Screen Actors Guild in 2008 as 5th alternate national director, 2009 as 1st alternate national director and in 2010 she began a three year term as national board member. Her previous American Federation of Television and Radio Artists service includes two consecutive terms on the AFTRA Los Angeles Local Board and the AFTRA National Board, three terms as AFTRA convention delegate/actor category and in 2011 she was elected Los Angeles local president and national 2nd vice president.

 

She also served SAG-AFTRA during the transition year as national vice president, Los Angeles.
