Feelings can often develop between co-stars and Mark-Paul Gosselaar is not impervious to that.
The “Saved by the Bell” star recently told Anna Faris’ “Unqualified” podcast about a fling he had with one of his fellow stars.
“When you’re working on a set, and we were young, there’s no one around really. I mean, you work and live in a bubble,” Gosselaar explained. “You’re in L.A., right? You’re in your cars and you come to set and you do your work and you’re with these beautiful women and then you go back in your car… and you’re not going to school, so you don’t have a lot of choices.”
“People say, ‘Well, didn’t you go out?’ Not really,” he explained. In fact, his mom drove him to work every day.
So who exactly had Gosselaar’s attention? Well, it was Elizabeth Berkley. The two briefly dated during the “Saved by the Bell” days. Gosselaar and Berkley both played significant roles on the timeless TV show with the former starring as Zack Morris and the latter as Jessie Spano.
Life had other things in mind for the actor. Gosselaar, now 44, met his ex-wife Lisa Ann Russell when he was just 19 years old; they were married by 22. The marriage lasted 14 years.
