Dustin Neil Diamond was an American actor, director, stand-up comedian, and musician best known for his role as Samuel "Screech" Powers throughout the Saved by the Bell franchise. Diamond began acting as a child. He became known for playing Samuel "Screech" Powers on the television show Saved by the Bell, a role he played for close to thirteen years from its beginning as Good Morning, Miss Bliss (1988–89) through its final incarnation, Saved by the Bell: The New Class (1994–2000). Continuing the series into college, Saved by the Bell: The College Years shows most of the cast transplanted into not only the same college, but also the same college dormitory, where Screech continued his typical misadventures. The College Years was canceled after one season. Diamond returned to Bayside High as Principal Belding's assistant in The New Class episodes, remaining with the show until its cancellation. Diamond was also a musician and formed an alternative metal band called Salty The Pocketknife.
