Trevor Donovan says he's prepared to portray his gay character on the CW's nighttime teenage drama 90210 in a romantic relationship.

The 32-year-old actor who plays all-American jock Teddy Montgomery made his remarks in a recently published interview with gay glossy The Advocate.

Teddy is struggling with coming out gay on the show.

In a recent episode, Teddy spends much of the day avoiding Ian, played by Canadian pop star Kyle Riabko.

When Ian does catch up with Teddy, the jock has a warning for him: "Stay away from me. Alright, I mean it."

"Look, I just want to tell you it's cool," Ian responds. "You don't have to worry, okay. I'm not going to tell anybody that we hooked up."

Producers of the show have described the storyline as a "dramatic, at times painful, but hopefully ultimately cathartic journey for" Teddy.

Donovan said he's excited about playing the part and wants his character to have a love life.

"Heck, yeah," he said. "I'm an actor, this is what I do. I'm telling a story, and it wouldn't be realistic if we didn't go there. I have no problem with that at all."
