Saved By The Bell Tiffani Thiessen Shares Tragic Death

Fans grew up watching Tiffani Thiessen as Kelly Kapowski on Saved by the Bell, immediately falling in love with her. She was a good girl who stole the hearts of all of the boys at Bayside. However, she ended up with Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar). They graduated from high school and the show was turned into a spinoff, The College Years where Kelly joined them. Though it was short-lived, it was clear Kelly and Zack were destined and that spawned a movie where they tied the knot. She moved on to Beverly Hills, 90210, playing bad girl Valerie Malone, essentially replacing Shannen Doherty.
