He began his career in television commercials in his native Canada before moving to Los Angeles in 1987. After guest appearances on popular shows such as 21 Jump Street, MacGyver and Quantum Leap, Priestley landed a recurring role as an orphan on the short-lived sitcom Sister Kate in 1989. It was his next acting gig with Beverly Hills, 90210 which led to a career breakthrough.

Priestley also tried his hand at directing, taking the reins of several episodes of 90210 and several music videos, including the one for the song The Old Apartment by the Canadian band Barenaked Ladies, in 1996. Shortly after leaving 90210 in 1998, Priestley had a big setback when he was involved in a car accident and was charged with drunk driving. He pled no contest to a misdemeanor drunk driving charge and was sentenced to spend five nights in a detention facility in Los Angeles and to attend a drug and alcohol abuse treatment program. Priestly went on to pursue a career in race car driving and in 2002 was seriously injured in a crash at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky. After intensive treatment and physical rehabilitation, he was able to recover from his injuries, but has since retired from racing.
