Tiffani Thiessen spilled some secrets from the set of “Saved By the Bell” during a Reddit Ask Me Anything Q&A on Wednesday.
From Kelly and Zack Morris’ memorable kissing scenes to where the couple would be today, the 41-year-old actress is taking us back to her days at Bayside High!
Check out the best bites below:
On the show’s success: “I don’t think you ever know what’s going to take off, or what’s not, when you’re auditioning for roles in film or TV. So it definitely exceeded any of our expectations on how much the show has become iconic over the years.”
Favorite behind-the-scenes moment: “Some of my favorite moments were definitely ones where we were playing practical jokes on each other, offset.” She said Mark-Paul Gosselaar was the “biggest joker” then … and still is now.
Who she stayed in touch with: “I keep in contact with all 3 of those people – Mark-Paul, Mario and Elizabeth – and you’ll actually see Mario and Elizabeth on ‘Dinner at Tiffani’s!”
Where’s Kelly Kapowski now? “She’d probably be living in the Midwest somewhere, with 5 children probably and Zack Morris, ahahaha!”
Better kisser, Mark Paul or Jaime Pressly [on the Fox show “Fastlane”]? “Oh gosh, that’s such a hard question. It depends on if you’re asking a 16 year old little girl, or someone a little bit older! I can’t pick just one. I love them both.”
On the Fallon reunion: “We all had a blast! I’m a huge fan of Jimmy Fallon, and it wasn’t too hard to be convinced to do something like that with him. I think they’d been pressuring us for the last couple years to do a reunion, and it felt like this was the right time to do it.”
On her fans: “It was a toss-up between people recognizing me from SBTB or 90210. Probably the most memorable fan interaction was in Las Vegas, with a woman who had a little too much to drink, and thought that I was really Valerie Malone and wanted to pick a fight with me. As my mother taught me, I walked away like a lady.”
