As Andrew thought about the show that catapulted him to stardom, he said, “It was definitely a fantasy world. We came off the heels of [Beverly Hills] 90210 and it was just a lot of fun. It was a Campy show, but at that time it was real talk at the water cooler every day, ”he said, adding,“ It was fun to be a part of. “
Andrew also confessed that his wife was a fan of another Melrose Place play – Jake Hanson, played by Grant Show. He went on to joke that he made it his “goal in life” to win Amy’s heart after she told him on the second date that Jake was her Melrose crush.

Elsewhere in the interview, Andrew shared a story about how he didn’t get the role as Billy in the beginning. “That was a real fate. I actually auditioned for it and didn’t even get a call back, and they ended up hiring someone, but they didn’t love the way he played the relationship with Allison.
“So they released him and did an emergency casting session [producer] Aaron spellingThe house and 30 people came in and we all drove our cars and made them wait. About three hours later, all of the cars had left except my ’82 Mazda, which I bought for $ 2,000 … I got the part and literally did the show on Monday. “
