Lark Voorhies didn't follow in the fashionable footsteps of her onscreen alter ego Lisa Turtle, but she did find mild success on the soap opera circuit on "Days of Our Lives" and "The Bold and the Beautiful."
She also scored stints on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," and "In the House." Voorhies was often cast as the object of affection in music videos (notably for artists Dru Hill and Boys II Men) and comedies ("How to be a Player" and "How High").
Following a three-year romance with "Bell" co-star Gosselaar, Voorhies was briefly engaged to comic Martin Lawrence. Now 38, she ended her eight-year marriage to Miguel Coleman in 2004 and told OK! magazine in 2007 that she now spends her time writing screenplays.
After a couple of oddly incoherent and rambling interviews last year, Voorhies' mother, Tricia, told People that the actress had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Voorhies denied that she suffers from the disorder, instead explaining to People that her mumbling during the interviews was actually praying.
