Voorhies revealed that there's an interesting story behind her first name 'Lark'. She said, "My mother saw a movie when she was 14 years old. I forget the name of the movie, but one of the lead characters was named Lark. She decided then she would name me and she stuck to it, and here I am." Lark Voorhies who grew up in Pasadena, California first made her acting debut at the age of two as a child star. Later at the age of fourteen, Lark Voorhies reappeared on an episode of "Small Wonder" in 1988. That very year, Voorhies bagged the recurring role of Lisa Turtle in "Good Morning, Miss Bliss" and appeared in 13 of it’s from 1988 to 1989; and continued to appear in its sequel "Saved by the Bell" {86 episodes - 1989-1993}. Lark Voorhies has since appeared in several television sitcoms and soap operas. She played the role of a bitchy socialite Wendy Reardon in "Days of Our Lives" {unknown episodes - 1993-1994} and in "The Bold and the Beautiful" {4 episodes - 1995-1996} Voorhies played the role of an amiable intern fashion-designer Jasmine Malone.

Besides sitcoms, Voorhies also appeared in movies and direct-to-video films. 21 years in the business affords her many opprotunities.

Lark also co-hosted "Promiscuity…Laying it on the Line" a teen show for BET, and guest starred in the new "Love Boat" for Spelling Entertainment. 1997 proved to be an exciting time for Lark, who made a big splash as one of MTV's VJ Disc Jockies on "MTV's Hotel California" and "Hotel Winter Lodge."
