At least there’s no hard feelings!

Jimmy Fallon recently reunited 2/3 of the Saved By The Bell cast, noticeably excluding Screech, AKA Dustin Diamond, and his love interest Lisa Turtle, AKA Lark Voorhies.

But Dustin isn’t upset about the snub at all! He recently said:

“It would have been fun, but I don’t see it as a personal insult.”

Phew! That’s a relief!

And when it comes to his acting career, Screech added:

“There were a lot of naysayers. There were a lot of people saying, ‘You’ve already peaked. You’re never going to get that again.’ Everyone went through their awkward stages as a kid. I went through all my awkward stages in front of millions. So when Screech pops out next to the muscular guys, especially if they had me wearing shorts or didn’t have a shirt on ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I knew I was pale and scrawny and gangly ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ it’s kind of embarrassing├óΓé¼┬ªI get that they’re making fun of me, but I’m an actor. This is my job.”

Wow! That’s such a great attitude in such a tough town!

We hope he can keep that positivity if he ends up going to prison over that stabbing incident!
