Mario Lopez is still friends with the Save By The Bell cast … while the iconic teen show celebrates its 30-year anniversary
It is 30 years ago that the iconic teenage college show Save By The Bell started.
And series alum Mario Lopez is still close to his castmates decades after playing in the popular program.
& # 39; I like having maintained friendships with them all. I think that's the most special, & # 39; revealed the 45-year-old in an interview with Weekly.
Good friends: Mario Lopez revealed that he is still close to his Save By The Bell castmates 30 years after the start of the iconic teenage high school show
& # 39; I was recently at Tiffani's house (Thiessen) and seeing how the children play together was really cool. & # 39;
The show, which ran from 1989 to 1992, celebrates its 30th anniversary on Tuesday and Mario mused: & I just can't believe he's still here. That is the most surprising, special thing. & # 39;
Mario appeared as A.C. Slater on with Tiffani as Kelly Kapowski, Mark – Paul Gosselaar as Zack Morris, Elizabeth Berkley as Jessie Spano, Lark Voorhies as Lisa Turtle and Dustin Diamond as Samuel & # 39; Screech & # 39; Powers.
The X-Factor host had a hard time remembering the episode he liked best.
& # 39; That's the most surprising, special thing & # 39 ;: the X-Factor host, 45, told of his years in the show, which ran until 1992, saying: & # 39; I just can't believe that it is still there & # 39;
& # 39; I don't really have a favorite. They are all a bit blurry, & he admitted.
& # 39; I think it was cool when we did the beach episode or the Hawaii (s) Palm Springs (episodes). Every time we left the class it was fun and cool. & # 39;
And he revealed that his children don't like the show, which is still being conducted in syndication.
Mario shares daughter Gia, eight, son Dominic, five and six week old baby Santino with his six year old wife, dancer, actress and producer Courtney Mazza, 36.
Formerly: Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Zack & Morris and Mario as A. C. Slater
His career started after Saved By The Bell and while he still performs occasionally, the multi-hyphen changed to hosting and spokesperson.
The celebrity did not speak about the line around his comments about transgender children, which allegedly cost him his work as a host at Fox & Extra's after 12 years.
He will be moving from September 9 to NBC & # 39; s Access Hollywood and Access Daily.
