Gabrielle Carteris Tops Patricia Richardson for SAG-AFTRA Exec VP Post

Gabrielle Carteris has been re-elected to a two-year term as SAG-AFTRA executive vice president of the union over Patricia Richardson at the union’s second biennial convention.

Carteris won with 79.31% of the votes among delegates at the convention, held at the Sheraton Universal in Los Angeles. Richardson narrowly lost a bid for the union presidency in August to incumbent Ken Howard.

Carteris is a longtime ally of Howard and his moderate Unite for Strength faction. She is best known for playing Andrea Zuckerman on long-running series “Beverly Hills, 90210.”

She has also worked as a producer, creating a series of “Lifestories” specials, which led to her producing and hosting her own talk show for Fox. Recent credits include guest-starring roles on “Criminal Minds,” “Make It or Break It,” “The Event,” “Longmire” and the Web series “Send Me” and the holiday television movie “12 Christmas Wishes.”

Carteris became involved in SAG and AFTRA politics prior to the 2012 merger, serving on the national boards of both unions. She was a part of the G1 group that helped with developing the merger plan, with Howard campaigning aggressively for the combo — which created a performers union with about 165,000 members.

Richardson, best known as Tim Allen’s co-star on “Home Improvement,” campaigned against Howard on a platform that Howard and his allies had not done enough to achieve better contracts. She headed the self-styled progressives of the Membership First slate, which has seen its power diminish since leading SAG during 2005-2008.

Richardson’s ally Jane Austin won the secretary-treasurer post in August over Jenny O’Hara.
