Biography

Fans of the saccharine-sweet teen sitcom "Saved by the Bell" (NBC, 1989-1992) would have been hard pressed to pick out Elizabeth Berkley as the star who would make the biggest name for herself, albeit, somewhat notoriously. After four years of watching Berkley's caricatured portrayal of a high school feminist, no one could guess that the buxom blonde would, with one role, be the one to immediately re-define herself as a garish stripper in one of the most-ridiculed - yet secretly adored - movies ever made. Since careers have ended over less, Berkley's patient rehabilitation of her image thereafter was only slightly less surprising, but admirable, at the same time.
