The 49-year-old became a star on the sitcom Saved By The Bell – before her career derailed after her stripper role in the notorious 1995 camp classic Showgirls.
But in a new trailer for the Saved By The Bell reboot on Peacock she could be seen paying homage to the monumental box office bomb, as she slid seductively down a fire pole.

Elizabeth Berkley Modelling
A brief shot in the sneak peek showed her flicking her eyes suggestively and treating a man to a teasing smile as she arches her back against the pole.
She is decked out in a saucy leopard print blouse over a plunging black top that puts her cleavage on display – an outfit that reappears in the sneak peek.

Elizabeth Berkley Rose To Fame
Elizabeth rose to fame on Saved By The Bell as high school girl Jessie Spano, a role tailored especially to her strengths.
She and Tiffani Amber Thiessen had both auditioned for one of the other roles, and after Tiffani got that part, the character of Jessie was created for Elizabeth.
Jessie is now the mother of a student at the high school where the show is set, and in the trailer she is seen to be undergoing a divorce.
Her old feelings for her high school ‘first love’ AC Slater – played by Mario Lopez and now the PE teacher – begin to resurface.
Elizabeth Berkley Showgirls
Showgirls rapidly became a cult favorite thanks in part to Elizabeth’s over-the-top performance as stripper Nomi Malone and to such ridiculous lines as the character claiming she ‘used to love Doggy Chow’ in a memorable scene with Gina Gershon.
However at the time the film made Elizabeth persona non grata – after she had left Saved By The Bell specifically to break into the movies.
‘Of course it was disappointing that it didn’t do well, but there was so much cruelty around it. I was bullied,’ she told People magazine last year.
‘And I didn’t understand why I was being blamed. The job as an actor is to fulfill the vision of the director. And I did everything I was supposed to do.’
She noted ‘no one associated with the film spoke up on my behalf to protect me. I was left out in the cold and I was a pariah in the industry I had worked so hard for.’
The Saved By The Bell reboot sees Elizabeth and Mario reunite with multiple co-stars from the original including Tiffani, Lark Voorhies and Mark-Paul Gosselaar.
