  Summary  

Gabrielle Anne Carteris is an American actress known for her role as Andrea Zuckerman on the early seasons of the 1990s television series Beverly Hills, 90210.

  Biography  

 personal life
Carteris was born in Scottsdale, Arizona, the daughter of Marlene, a realtor, and Ernest Carteris, a restaurant owner of Greek ancestry. She has a twin brother, James. Her parents separated six months after her birth. Carteris's mother moved with her children to San Francisco, California, where she set up a children's clothing store. While attending high school in Marin County, California, Carteris took an interest in the arts, studying ballet and performing as a mime on a European tour at 16 years old. She graduated from Sarah Lawrence College in 1983 with a bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts.

Carteris is Jewish. She married Charles Isaacs, a stock broker, in 1992, and has two daughters with him named Kelsey and Mollie.

In the March 17, 2008 issue of People magazine, Carteris described an injury suffered while filming a TV movie in Vancouver, Canada, in 2006 that partially paralyzed her face and affected her speech for over six months.

 career
In 1990, Carteris was cast in her best known role as studious school newspaper editor Andrea Zuckerman on Beverly Hills, 90210. At age 29, she was the oldest cast member to portray a 16-year-old. When the series first began, most of the characters were supposed to be in their junior year of high school. However, when the show became very popular, the writers later wrote that the characters were now sophomores, to get an extra year of high school plots in before they went to college.

Carteris was only six years younger than James Eckhouse, who was cast on the show as Jim Walsh, the father of Brenda and Brandon Walsh, Andrea's contemporaries on the series. Carteris left the series in 1995 and became the host of her own television talk show, entitled Gabrielle, which lasted only one season.

In 2003, she participated in the first season of the celebrity reality television show The Surreal Life. She later provided the voice of Elektra in the video game Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.

In March 2010, Carteris appeared in the 17th episode of Criminal Minds Season 5.
