Jason Priestley has no regrets about leaving Los Angeles.

On Tuesday, the Beverly Hills, 90210 star opened up about his move from California to Nashville, Tennessee, during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Mark.

“So you moved from L.A. to Nashville, the whole family. What’s that been like? Do you miss L.A.?” Kelly Ripa asked the actor.

“No, I don’t. I don’t miss it at all. Nashville, if any of you have ever been to Nashville, it’s an awesome city,” Priestley replied. “Really fun. You know, we love it there.”

His daughter, Ava, played a big role in his family's decision to change their home base from the West Coast to the South. (Priestley also shares son Dashiell with wife Naomi Lowde-Priestley.)

“We started looking around at high schools for our daughter and we didn’t like any of the options for her in Los Angeles, so we started expanding our search and we ended up in Nashville, Tennessee, because we found an amazing school there for our kids,” he said.

Also during the appearance, Ripa asked him if his know or watch 90210, and the 90s star replied in the affirmative.

"Uh, yes. They know about it," Priestley shared. "My daughter for a while wanted to watch episodes of the show but only wanted to watch them with me so she could make fun of me. My flip phone, my mom jeans — all the stuff. She thought it was hilarious."

Despite a resurgence in popularity for the show with a new generation of viewers, he doesn't get recognized by his kids' classmates "because I kind of look like Brandon's dad now," he says, joking about his character Brandon Walsh on the series.
