Brian Austin Green praises former '90210' co-star Shannen Doherty’s resilience amid cancer battle

Brian Austin Green has nothing but heartwarming words of praise for former 90210 co-star Shannen Doherty amid her long-standing battle with cancer.

"Shannen is loved and she should be," Green told PEOPLE.

The actor, who recently announced engagement to girlfriend-of-three-years, Sharna Burgess, admires Doherty’s spirt of a “fighter” through her many “difficult” struggles.

"She is a fighter. She's been facing challenges over the last, gosh, decade now that are just, they're difficult things. And she is absolutely leading by example and showing people that even in the toughest of times, you can keep your head up and you can be a good person, and she is, she's an amazing person, and I think she's an inspiration for people, she should be."

Doherty was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. She was in remission in 2017, and was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in 2020.

Back in June, she shared with fans that her cancer had spread to her brain and then proceeded to get the tumor removed from her brain.

Meanwhile, Doherty received a standing ovation from fans and friends during the 90s Con in Tampa, Florida last weekend.

The actress, 52, got emotional as she thanked them fro the honor, "Thank you so much. You guys know how much I love crying constantly. And I do, it seems. So, thank you."
