Dustin Diamond, who played Screech on "Saved by the Bell, has died.
It was announced a few weeks ago that Diamond had been diagnosed with lung cancer. Diamond completed his first round of chemo just last week.
A spokesperson stated "there were two people very close to him by his side when he passed away".
In a recent interview his co-star Mario Lopez said, “I actually just spoke with him a couple of weeks ago. He was reluctant to go in [to the hospital] for a while because he didn’t know if anything was going to get out. And I said, ‘Bro, that’s foolish, you’ve got to get in there and take care of yourself and forget what people are saying.’ Some people thought his illness was a joke, which is awful, but the internet always spills tales. When all of this was happening, I was optimistic that he would make a recovery, but it was obviously too late.”
