Saved By The Bell heartthrob unrecognisable 30 years after hit show finished | The Sun

SAVED By The Bell's Zack Morris was the coolest kid at Bayside High School.

But fast-forward a few decades and you might not recognise Mark-Paul Gosselaar, the actor who played him.

The star, who turns 50 this year, was among guests at the retro-themed 90s Con festival today.

Mark-Paul has lost none of his good looks – posing for photographers with dark hair and a pair of black-rimmed glasses on.

90s Con, held at the Connecticut Convention Centre in the US, hosted a line-up of stars who found fame in the pre-internet age.

Other attendees included Melisa Joan Hart from Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Clueless movie actress Alicia Silverstone.
