Dustin Diamond Dies: ‘Saved By The Bell’ Star Was 44

Dustin Diamond, who gained youthful fame as the nerdy “Screech” on Saved By The Bell, died today, just weeks after revealing he was battling stage 4 cancer. He was 44.

Diamond’s agent confirmed the actor’s death.

Diamond checked into a Florida hospital last month after enduring pain throughout his body from shingles and a general feeling of unease. After the cancer was discovered he underwent chemotherapy in hopes of beating it back.

After Saved By The Bell ended in 2000, he appeared in several low-budget films, made TV cameos, and was on several reality shows including Celebrity Boxing on Fox, where he won his match.

Diamond also wrote a 2009 tell-all book, Behind the Bell, that detailed the dirt on the backstage antics of the show.
