Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth – best known for their roles in Beverly Hills 90210 – arrived in Israel on Sunday afternoon.
The two Hollywood actresses will be visiting the Holy Land courtesy of the fashion brand Castro, which has hired the pair to shoot a new ad campaign for the Castro Kids chain.
Castro said Sunday that the filming for the commercial will begin on Monday. Spelling and Garth – known for playing Donna and Kelly on the iconic series – will be joined by “dozens of talented children, musicians and singers” for the ad spot, Castro said. The group will perform the theme song from the show in the new ad campaign, “as a tribute to the parents of our children,” the company said.
Spelling uploaded an Instagram story to her account on Sunday, featuring her and Garth clinking glasses together aboard a flight.
“I feel bad poor @jenniegarth has to deal with this terrified flyer for 13 hours,” Spelling wrote. “CHEERS.”
The stars of Beverly Hills 90210, the show which went off the air in 2000, have had quite a year. Last month, Fox announced that it had ordered a six-episode revival of the show, produced by Spelling and Garth. And earlier this month, Luke Perry, who played Dylan McKay in the original show, died at age 52 after a massive stroke.
Spelling is Jewish, and this is believed to be her first visit to Israel. But it is the second such trip for Garth, who came in 1992 with her co-stars Jason Priestly, Ian Ziering and Gabrielle Carteris for a special Hanukkah performance alongside Israeli teen stars.
The pair are expected to be in Israel for filming for just 24 hours before returning to Los Angeles.
