Kobe Bryant was scheduled to film a cameo for the Saved By the Bell reboot days before his death

Days before his tragic death, Kobe Bryant made a cameo appearance in Peacock’s Saved by the bell Reboot, its stars have shown.

The former American basketball star died in a helicopter crash in January 2020 along with his daughter Giana and seven other people.

However, according to Josie Totah and Alycia Pascual-Peña, who played Bayside High students Lexi and Aisha in the short-lived two-season spinoff of the 1984 sitcom of the same name, Bryant was set to appear in the pilot episode.

Speaking on Thursday (September 15) episode of her dare we say it podcast, the two revealed the “wild treat” (via Weekly entertainment).

“I don’t think many people know,” Totah said. “But we were supposed to be filming with Kobe two days after he died.”

She called Bryant’s addition “so surreal,” with Pascual-Peña recalling that the energy on set “changed a lot” when it came time to shoot the pilot after his death.

“I remember learning that he went through one of our best friends, Anjelika Washington,” Pascual-Peña said. “She called me specifically because she knew I had been talking to her about it for a month – that I was so excited to meet Kobe on set and I can’t believe he was a fan of the first one Saved by the bell and that he was excited to be on the show.

She continued, “It’s really beautiful and enlightening to see how one person can bring joy to so many people. Some people live their entire lives without seeing the full impact they have had on the world until they die. Luckily, Kobe got his flowers as a gift. This man was so loved and so respected.”

Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, recently won $16 million (£13.8 million) in her lawsuit against Los Angeles County over graphic photos taken by police and firefighters at the scene of the basketball legend’s fatal helicopter crash.
