6 'Saved By the Bell' Actors: Where Are They Now?

RealClear Staff


'The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story' is a 2014 made-for-television movie that recently premiered, and is based on the 2009 book by Dustin Diamond (aka Screech) called Behind the Bell.

If you were a child of the 80s or 90s, I'm sure you remember the show and the cast of characters fondly. Before the new movie ruins these fond memories, check out what the original cast has been up to since their Bayside High School days.

6. Lark Voorhies aka Lisa Turtle

Lark Voorhies looks much different than when she played Lisa Turtle, doesn't she? 

In 2012, she had a role in a small film called 'Closer to God: Jessica's Journey,' and she also joined her former costar Dustin Diamond  for a role in 'Little Creeps,' a funny horror movie.

5. Dustin Diamond aka Screech Powers

Dustin Diamond definitely channeled his inner Screech after he left the show. After starring in and releasing his own sex tape (ewww), he moved onto other projects.

He is also a musician and formed his own band called Salty The Pocketknife. Diamond played bass and wrote much of the music as well before the band broke up.

In August 2013, Diamond became a housemate on the 12th series of 'Celebrity Big Brother.'

4. Elizabeth Berkley aka Jessie Spano

Elizabeth Berkley has had many minor television and film roles since 'Saved By the Bell.'

In 2006, Berkley set up a self-help program online for teen girls called Ask-Elizabeth, which lead to a book deal of the same name in 2011.

In September 2013, Berkley was announced as one of the contestants on the 17th season of 'Dancing with the Stars,' and landed in 6th place overall.



3. Mario Lopez aka AC Slater

Mario Lopez has been the most present and most famous cast member from 'Saved By the Bell' over the years.

Lopez has maintained his TV presence thanks to a variety of hosting gigs, and he's currently the host of both The X Factor and Extra. 

He also had a televised 2012 reality television show about his wedding, 'Mario and Courtney's Wedding Fiesta' on TLC.

2. Tiffani Thiessen aka Kelly Kapowski

Tiffani Thiessen followed her success as Kelly Kapowski by starring on the original hit teen-drama Beverly Hills, 90210.

Like her other costars, Thiessen has had many small roles in TV and movies. Since 2009, Thiessen stars in the USA Network crime series 'White Collar.' 

1. Mark-Paul Gosselaar

Mark-Paul Gosselaar looks just as good as he did in the old days on 'Saved By the Bell.' In 2009, Gosselaar reprised his popular role for a funny Zack Morris skit on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Now he stars on the TNT series 'Franklin & Bash.'
