They'll always be high school students in our hearts.

But sadly our teenage idols grow up too, and Lark Voorhies is no exception.

'I really honestly believe if it did happen it wouldn't be a bad thing. We just did a People magazine spread and that was a nice reunion.'

The NBC show followed the trials and
tribulations of Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), 'Screech' Powers
(Dustin Diamond), Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen), Jessie Spano
(Elizabeth Berkley), A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez) and Lisa as they battled
their principal Mr Belding (Dennis Haskins).

The old gang: A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez), Mr Belding (Dennis Haskins), Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen), Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley), Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and 'Screech' Powers (Dustin Diamond) were idolised by teenage fans

Speaking of the show's success, Lark said: 'Every television package has a progressive
process, and although it started with Disney, it grew in popularity and I suppose
there was a big scramble by the networks and NBC happen to catch the
win. So there we found our home!'

She also revealed she has been 'very
busy' with her new production company, and has written, directed
produced and starred-in a new film called The Hope For Pandora's Box.

The old school: Mark Paul Gosselaar starred in the show as Zak Morris and Elizabeth Berkley played Jessie Spano

Now and then: Mark-Paul Gosselaar was a fresh-faced teen in his heyday before starring in Franklin & Bash

Elizabeth Berkley

Better with age: Elizabeth Berkley was rather uptight as Jessie, but has morphed into a blonde bombshell

Other characters from the show also
found success following their glory years, with Mark-Paul landing one of
the lead roles in drama-comedy Franklin & Bash last year.

Tiffani
went on to play Valerie Malone in Beverly Hills, 90210 for four years,
before progressing to White Collar, while female co-star Elizabeth is
known for CSI and her foray with Showgirls.

Mario
has become a familiar face on US televisions thanks to his presenting
role on Extra and placing second on the third season of Dancing With The
Stars behind NFL star Emmitt Smith.

Meanwhile, Dustin is perhaps most famed for his 2006 sex tape – which he released himself.
