For three years, 1989-1992, Tiffani played high school student Kelly Kapowki on the hit sitcom Saved by the Bell, and instantly became a household name whose poster was on many boys’ walls throughout the '90s.

But while she auditioned for the role of the famously indecisive — and perfectly coifed — character, the now 44-year-old was deemed too young to fit into the rest of the cast (played by David Schwimmer, 51, Matthew Perry, 49, Courteney Cox, 54, Matt LeBlanc, 51, and Lisa Kudrow, 55). "I was just a little too young, a little too young for the pairing for the rest of them,” she explained on the show.
