Ryan Eggold's character on 90210 may seem too cool for school, but the actor is still learning how to keep his cool when it comes to kissing costar Jennie Garth.

"Isn't that scary?" Eggold told reporters Sunday at the Emmys. "She's married too, so I feel like I'm breaking another line."



Eggold plays English teacher Ryan Matthews, a new love interest for Garth's character Kelly Taylor on the show.

But Eggold isn't about to cross any lines--not when Garth's husband, actor Peter Facinelli, has made his feelings clear. "He hasn't been on set, but he has been to functions, and when I met him he just squeezed my hand very tightly," Eggold said. "Fair enough, Peter Facinelli, you are king. It's cool." What's also cool is the on-set camaraderie, says Eggold, responding to rumors that Shenae Grimes, who plays Annie Mills, is a diva. "I have no idea where that story came from," he said. "She's a real sweet girl. Everyone is getting along as far as I can see. Maybe when I'm off set all hell is breaking loose and I don't see it. But when I'm on set, know to be nice." --Emmet Sullivan
