Dustin Diamond, best known for playing the lovable Samuel “Screech” Powers on the hit NBC sitcom, “Saved by the Bell” — has died, this according to TMZ.
A rep for Dustin told TMZ he died Monday morning after battling stage 4 lung cancer.
His condition had greatly declined since last week, and he was taken off of breathing machines in an attempt to get him to hospice care.
His girlfriend was by his side when he passed away, and we’re told he did not suffer.
“Dustin wasn’t recast for the reboot of the show on Peacock. Back in January 2020, we talked to him about why he wasn’t signed on for the new project,” said his Lawyer.
Dustin would appear in tons of other roles…including as the groom in 98 Degrees’ music video for their 1999 hit track, “I Do (Cherish You).” He also appeared in 2 episodes of “The Wonder Years.”
He became infamous for directing his own sex tape in 2006 but later admitted to Oprah Winfrey it wasn’t him…but a stunt double.
