Recently, “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” gifted the world with an epic “Saved by the Bell” reunion with Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffani Thiessen, Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkeley and Dennis Haskins all reprising their roles from the hit ’90s series. While the skit was nothing short of amazing, viewers couldn’t help but notice that two of the Bayside’s standout characters, Lisa Turtle (played by Lark Voorhies) and Screech (Dustin Diamond) were missing in action.
Why many speculate that Voorhies’ new appearance may have been the reason she opted out of Wednesday’s reunion, her publicist tells E! News that there was simply a scheduling conflict. “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.”
While no explanation has surfaced regarding Diamond’s absence, the troubled actor recently pleaded not guilty to stabbing a man in December 2014.
