The actress rose to fame with her show mates and after she finished, she made multiple TV appearances. However, after the year 2000, her presence in the media seemed to disappear, leaving her fans wondering about her.


In 1989 the series “Saved by the Bell” targeted its protagonists, and one of them, Lisa Turtle, became the favorite. Everyone adored the intelligent and rich young lady, and after the show ended in 1982, its protagonists tried to continue their careers.

Lark was no exception, and during the following years, he continued to appear in several television shows as well as in movies. We cannot forget that he was present in “Saved by the Bell: The College Years,” “Saved By the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas,” “Saved By the Bell: Hawaiian Style,” and “Saved By the Bell: The New Class. ”

It's no secret that Lark's career began with his role as Lisa Turtle in the 14-episode series "Good Morning, Miss Bliss." That series was the predecessor of "Saved By the Bell," being Lisa's role one of those that remained in the new production.


With his role in "Saved By the Bell," Voorhies became a requested figure and when the show ended he participated in countless series of series as a special guest. He was also in 28 episodes of "Days of Our Lives."

Her entries include "It's OK to Be a Kid," "Small Wonder,” "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "Who Shrunk Saturday Morning? " among others. She also appeared in "Martin," "Getting By," "Me And The Boys," the series "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," and "Family Matters."

In the world of Soaps Opera, she had other participations such as the seven episodes of “The Bold and the Beauty, ” playing Jasmine Malone and in“ In the House, ”where she played the role of Mercedes Langford for eighteen episodes.



As of 2000, Lark's credits at IMDB include "Grown Up," "Fire & Ice," and "Widow." She then disappears from the scene until 2008 when she participates in "Robot Chicken," and "Zack Morris Is Trash,” Where she participates as Lisa Turtle, although she does not appear in the credits.

A few appearances in video productions also appear in her credits, letting her fans wonder what happened to her acting career and if she will continue acting in the near future.



Not everyone wants to share their life through social media, and Voorhies seems to belong to that group of people. In her official Tweeter account, she shares some positive phrases and messages for her followers but does not share many details of her life.

The confusion is generated thanks to an Instagram account, not verified, where photos and information of the actress are shared, and some people believe that she is behind the posts.


However, she has denied these publications all the time, indicating that she does not have or have had an Instagram account. Something contradictory, because sometimes publications and photos seem to have been published by her.


The accounts of the actress, whether official or not, have been involved in scandals for inconvenient publications. In addition, on several occasions, she has been the victim of hackers and fake account lies. On one occasion it was about a diagnosis of Lupus, which she denied.

On another occasion, some posts appeared attacking Bill Cosby, and claiming that she is not "black." On that last occasion, Voorhies once again indicated that she has no Instagram account, which should settle the matter.



In April 2015, Lark got engaged and married for the third time, this time with music producer Jimmy Green, whom he met on Facebook. Although the media and Instagram accounts made publications about problems in marriage, the actress categorically denied them.

However, six months after the wedding, Lark filed for divorce claiming "irreconcilable differences." Although she said she had been on good terms with her third ex-husband, and wish him well. She posted on her Twitter that at this stage she wanted to focus on keeping going ahead with her life.


According to statements she has given in some interviews, she loves to sing and has kept singing since she was 13 years old, with several simple engravings, including according to her, she operates. However, the only available singles interpreted by her are "Roll with Me" and "Saturday."


As well as other aspects of her life, it is not very clear what is real and what is not. However, what can be said is that the creativity that characterized her in her youthful years, remains intact, although her looks has remarkably changed.


For years, every time she has been interviewed, Voorhies has said that she would love to participate in a “Saved By the Bell” meeting. The strange thing is that on the two occasions that these meetings were managed, she was one of the missing faces.

In 2015 the members of the show met on Jimmy Fallow's show, “The Tonight Show.” To the delight of his followers, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Tiffani Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, and Dennis Haskins finally met.

According to her publicist, Lark's absence from the reunion was due to her agenda. She was totally busy during that moment and although she wanted very much to participate in the special created by Jimmy Fallon, she couldn´t make it.

Beyond what is or is not true that runs through the media about Lark and that her statements have been contradictory on several occasions, if a remake of the series would really happen, the followers would like to see Voorhies participate.
