Saved by the Bell’s Lisa Turtle is making a comeback.
Actress Lark Voorhies, now 46, has remained in the world of showbiz but has not landed another role that has made her quite as famous as her part in the nineties high school comedy.

Who is Saved By The Bell’s Lark Voorhies?
Lark was born on March 25, 1974, in Nashville, Tennessee.
She began acting at age two but did not resume again until she was 11, according to her IMDB bio.
Lark surged to fame on Saved by the Bell in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
She would also have roles in Days of Our Lives and The Bold and the Beautiful.
Lark has been married three times, most recently to Jimmy Green.

Who did she play in Saved by the Bell?
Lark’s Lisa Turtle was one of the main characters in the show, alongside co-stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris), Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater), Dustin Diamond (Samuel “Screech” Powers), Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano), and Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski).
She later took on her role as wholesome Lisa in three special revivals.
Where is she now?
She was initially overlooked, but will make a special appearance as a grown up fashionista version of the character.

Lark’s return may come as a surprise to some fans considering how vocal she was about her co-stars and the reboot earlier this year.
The star – who is bipolar – told Dr. Oz in February: “I have to admit I did feel a bit slighted and hurt when I was not invited to be part of the Saved by the Bell reunion, as well as other cast members’ events.
“Yet of course, I also realized that having this puzzling disorder may have played a major part in that factual decision.”
Dr Oz asked her: “Now over the years, Lark’s former castmates have reunited on-screen and off-screen. “Here’s a photo of them with their spouses celebrating 30 years of friendship.
“So Lark, as you look at that photo, and I know you know about these reunions, how does it make you feel when you see them socializing?”
She replied: “Empowered. They have the right to do that and they’re happy in their element and they can have it, certainly.”

But when asked if she would have liked to have been included in those get-togethers, she replied: “Well, yes. Family isn’t kept complete without its lead.”
Saved By The Bell is available to watch on the Peacock streaming service now.
Reboot star Josie Tosah has revealed why Bayside “needed” a transgender girl as the most popular teen in school.
