The ‘Saved by the Bell’ revival is moving forward. It will star Josie Totah, who will play Lexi, “a beautiful, sharp-tongued cheerleader and the most popular girl at Bayside High” according toe Deadline. It was also recently revealed that Mark-Paul Gosselaar will be back as Zack Morris — but only for a few episodes. In fact, Tiffani Thiessen is also in talks to come back for a few. Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley are already in. They will be back as A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano, and play the parents of Josie Totah’s character.
Josie opened up recently about her gender identity for the first time publicly in a 2018 Time magazine essay. “In the past, I’ve halfway corrected people by telling them I identify as LGBTQ. I wasn’t ready to be more specific … I have come to believe that God made me transgender. I don’t feel like I was put in the wrong body. I don’t feel like there was a mistake made. I believe that I am transgender to help people understand differences,” she added.
