Lark’s mother revealed to People that doctors noticed her daughter began alternating between moments of pure joy and constant chatter to times of prolonged silence, coupled with a vacant stare – within a matter of minutes.
“It’s frustrating… They can’t explain it… I care deeply about my daughter and I want her to resume her life.”
The actress, who has been struggling with the erratic behavior for years, was recently prescribed medication to help deal with the mental illness, but Tricia insists the condition was brought on by a series of undisclosed events, which left the actress traumatized.
This a terribly sad ordeal. My heart goes out Lark. She was my favorite character on "Saved By The Bell".
