Birth Sign

Born October 10, 1973, Mario Lopez began his acting career on the popular Saturday morning show: Saved by the Bell. Once the popularity of that show fizzled out however, he would fade into obscurity until he was re-discovered on the popular dance show: Dancing with the Stars. From there, his career once again began to skyrocket.

In the Beginning

Mario Lopez began his life on October 10, 1973, born in San Diego, and started his acting career at age ten. He appeared on a variety show called Kid’s Incorporated and would later appear as Slater in Saved by the Bell – a popular Saturday morning televisions series. It is difficult to describe how popular Saved by the Bell was, but we can say that Lopez appeared in both spinoffs, and then went on to star in the two made-for-TV movies. Eventually though, the popularity of the show declined, and Lopez drifted about, finding no real acting work anywhere. Of course he did appear on a few television shows and straight-to-video movies, the most memorable being his portrayal of Olympic swimmer Greg Louganis in 1997. Though it was a small role, it did receive a considerable amount of attention. This was the beginning of Lopez’s career, and it seemed as if he had bottomed out and may never actually act in a mainstream show again. In 1998 he met Ali Landry and married her in 2004, though a few weeks later, the marriage was annulled.

Most Known For

Lopez is most known for his primary role on Saved by the Bell, the popular Saturday morning show that ran for several seasons, spawned two spinoffs, and a few television movies. It is said that the show influenced many lives, but it fizzled out fairly quickly, taking Lopez down with the ship temporarily. He is also known for his startling comeback, though there are many today who do not know of his role on Saved by the Bell simply because it has faded into obscurity.


Where Are They Now

Lopez continues to act and raise his daughter while publishing books. He shows no signs of backing out of the acting game anytime soon.

Career Accomplishments

When child stars disappear or are brushed aside from their lead role, there is a strong chance that they will never be seen again. They tend to ride the euphoria for a time, but then find themselves sinking into obscurity, never to be seen again. You can see many different examples from popular culture. For example, Cody, from Step by Step, once a popular icon (who lived in a van) vanished once the show came to the end of its run. Since then he has been in and out of trouble with the law, and this story is not unique. That being said, there was a distinct possibility that Lopez would meet the same fate, but he proved to be far more resilient than the others, and eventually managed to take back the spotlight in force. Lopez appeared on "Dancing with the Stars" in 2006 and he was named the "runner up." It wasn’t long before he found himself on "Extra" serving as a correspondent, but was quickly promoted and took over the weekday episodes.  Though he had been out of the spotlight for a considerable amount of time, he quickly rose to fame once again, even becoming People Magazine’s Hottest Bachelor in 2008. Mario Lopez has become a household name, and even managed to make a Broadway debut in "A Chorus Line" in 2008. Additionally, he has released several books – a brief foray into  the world outside of television. He has come back in a huge way, and it appears that he is here to stay, at least for now.
