Friends for life!
ET’s Rachel Smith spoke to Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell at ’90s Con over the weekend where the pair had a special message for their “All That” co-star, Amanda Bynes, after she missed out on the cast reunion.
“I’ve just been praying for her,” Mitchell said amid Bynes’ absence. “It’s awesome to see she’s doing better. Which is great. We’re just continuing to pray for her on her journey, and it’s answered prayers that she’s doing a lot better.”
Per That’s 4 Entertainment, the organization behind ’90s Con, Bynes, who told People back in January that she was “really excited” to reunite with her castmates, was forced to miss the weekend’s festivities due to an “unknown illness.”
Her attendance at the highly anticipated reunion, alongside Thompson, Mitchell, Danny Tamberelli and Lori Beth Denberg, would have marked her first public appearance since the end of her eight-year conservatorship in March 2022.
Mitchell and Thompson, who surprised fans with his appearance at the convention Saturday, also took the moment to reminisce on their All That days, and the “surreal” experience of having the fandom continue nearly 30 years later.
“You know what’s surreal about it? It’s hearing the stories, and people say how it touched their hearts in ’94. And they still have a love for it. How they’re introducing it to their friends and then also introducing it to their kids, which is so awesome,” Mitchell gushed. “I mean, it’s like, five-year-olds having ‘Good Burger’ birthdays and they weren’t even born in ’94.”
He continued, “It just says a lot to the crew, the cast, the friendships of that time.”
For Thompson, the surreal experience was in the making of “All That” and “Kenan & Kel”, with the “Saturday Night Live” star
