Lifestyle - News
While Trevor Donovan is most known for "90210" and the Hallmark Channel movies, many daytime television fans will remember Donovan from "Days of Our Lives," where he portrayed Jeremy Horton. Recently, while competing on the latest season of "Dancing With The Stars," he opened up about his acting career and revealed the real reason he was fired from the fan-favorite soap.
During this week's episode of "Dancing With The Stars," Donovan and the rest of the contestants were asked about their most memorable year and created a dance that coincided with that. Donovan chose 2009 and revealed that it was so memorable for him because that's when he was fired from his first big acting gig, on "Days of Our Lives."
Donovan admitted that he was let go because he would freeze up and panic while filming scenes. "I was a struggling actor," he said. "I had booked 'Days of Our Lives,' a three-year contract. I was so excited. I finally got a job as a working actor, but I would get in front of the camera and just panic. There's similarities here with this dancing stuff. So they fired me."
