Tiffani Thiessen (born Tiffani Amber Thiessen January 23, 1974) is an American actress. She played Kelly ...
Kelly Kapowski is a cheerleader and has been described by creator Peter Engel as the quintessential "All-American Girl". She serves as the love interest for both Zack and Slater in the first season, forming a love triangle between the three; but it is Zack who eventually wins her heart and ends up marrying her. Much of the show's storylines revolve around their on-again/off-again relationship.
Considered the most popular girl in school, Kelly is very kind and also has a squeaky clean reputation. Despite this, she did have to serve a couple of detentions.
Initially, Kelly was not a member of the show's core clique. At times, Kelly and Jessie argue due to their differences, such as Jessie believing that cheerleading is demeaning to women (although Jessie herself is a cheerleader in several episodes). Kelly is on the volleyball, cheerleading, and swim teams and is also a trained lifeguard. Zack has been obsessively in love with Kelly for years, as evidenced by a life-size poster of her in his bedroom.
Upon graduation, Kelly does not have enough money for college, so she attends community college. She later transfers to Cal U. with Zack, Slater, and Screech.
Both 'Elizabeth Berkley' and Thiessen, as well as 'Jennie Garth', auditioned for the role of Kelly Kapowski. Thiessen and Garth later worked together on Beverly Hills, 90210.
