The new trailer for Saved By The Bell has been released, and while the new reunion show looks nice, one member of the original cast is missing and that’s actress Lark Voorhies, aka Lisa Turtle.
And MTO News learned that the actress was purposely banned from the show.
HERE IS THE TRAILER FOR THE REBOOT SAVED BY THE BELL:
Lark, one of the most popular characters on the series, was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder a few years ago. And it seems that the producers would rather NOT deal with Lark and her illness.
According to several people close to Lark, the production team NEVER asked them to be part of the reboot. Additionally, MTO News was told when Lark offered a cameo – even without a fee, the actress was reportedly told that she was “not allowed” on the set.
Lark responded to her feelings about being banned from the show on Doctor Oz a few months ago.
There she said to Dr. Oz: “I have to admit that I felt a little offended and hurt when I wasn’t invited to attend the Saved by the Bell reunion and other cast members’ events. Of course I also realized that this puzzling disorder may have played an important role in this factual decision, ”said Voorhies this week in the Dr. Oz Show. “With that in mind, I’m really grateful that I had the opportunity to work on the show that was so successful.”
She tries to stay professional – but you could tell how upset she was.
Black Twitter doesn’t have and is in the arms about Lark being blacked out from the new series.
Here are some of their comments:
