HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL actress Monique Coleman was extra thrilled when she appeared on U.S. talent show Dancing With The Stars last year (06) - she met her teen crush Mario Lopez.
The 26-year-old star couldn't believe she would be a fellow contestant alongside Lopez, who she had idolised as A.C. Slater on hit 1990s TV show Saved By The Bell.
Coleman says, "My teen obsession was Saved By The Bell. Zac Morris was just mmmm.
"Then I got to meet him Dancing With The Stars. I remember the day Mario Lopez walked in the door. I just about died.
"It was so funny when the show started, because he brought in his nieces and had me sign things for them and now it's just surreal to see how my whole life had come full circle."
