‘90210’ Actress Gabrielle Carteris Wins SAG-AFTRA Exec VP Slot

Veteran union activist Gabrielle Carteris has won the SAG-AFTRA Executive VP post at the union’s first convention.

The slot is the second-highest elected post in the union, which represents 165,000 performers.

Carteris was elected Thursday during the opening session of the convention, attended by more than 350 delegates at the JW Marriott Hotel in Los Angeles. She received two-thirds of the votes.

Carteris defeated New York local president Mike Hodge, who had been endorsed by president Ken Howard. Jane Austin, who had been the running mate of Esai Morales in his challenge to Howard for the presidency, was also seeking the exec VP post.

Carteris, who played the role of Andrea Zuckerman on “Beverly Hills, 90210,” has been in the SAG and AFTRA unions for 26 years and served on five negotiating committees. She has been a leader of the moderate Unite For Strength faction that campaigned successfully for last year’s merger.

Carteris was first elected to office in 2005 and served simultaneously on both the SAG and AFTRA national boards. Following the merger, Carteris was chosen as SAG‑AFTRA’s first National VP of the LA Local.

Carteris received endorsements from Secretary‑Treasurer Amy Aquino; former co-president Roberta Reardon; David Hartley-Margolin, National VP for the Small Locals; Jim Kerr, VP of the New York Local; national board member Jason George; and former national board member Adam Arkin.

Her credits include producing and hosting her own talk show for Fox, “Gabrielle” and guest starring roles on “Criminal Minds,” “Make It or Break It,” “The Event” and “12 Christmas Wishes.”

Following the vote for Carteris, delegates elected Hodge as national VP for New York along with half a dozen other national VP slots including Clyde Kusatsu for Los Angeles, Ilyssa Fradin for  mid-sized locals, Hartley-Margolin for small locals, Robert Newman for  actors/performers, Catherine Brown for broadcasters and Dan Navarro for recording artists.

Kuasatsu, Brown and Navarro ran unopposed.
