Jimmy Fallon’s Saved By The Bell reunion was the stuff adulthood dreams are made of but it was still imperfect. While the lesser visible Elizabeth Berkley and Tiffani-Amber Thiessen managed to mix it up with their successful co-stars in Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Mario Lopez, two of the original cast members were still M-I-A.
Dustin Diamond, still known as Screech to even his family members, has a valid excuse as he’s currently facing prison time for knifing a man during a bar fight. As for Lisa Turtle a.k.a. Lark Voorhies, she was apparently too busy to excite audience. Y’know, being a big movie star and all.
A publicist for the 40-year-old actress told E! News that “Lark would have loved to be part of the Jimmy Fallon skit (as she is a big fan of the show), however due to an intense work schedule she was not available.” According to her iMDB page, Voorhies’ last batch of film roles were in 2012. It also shows she’s been cast on a developing TV show named The Comeback Kids.
We’re not sure if the show’s workload is demanding to the point where she missed out on all the NBC fun, but it could also be safe to assume her recent current appearance may play a factor.
Last time she was spotted in public, Black Twitter couldn’t help themselves at her expense.
