‘Big Bang Theory’ Star Mayim Bialik Reveals Her Toughest Scene from Last Season

Mayim Bialik called the much-ballyhooed Valentine’s Day kiss on “The Big Bang Theory” her toughest scene from the seventh season.

The veteran sitcom actress spoke about the episode during a conversation with fellow comedic leading ladies at last week’s Variety Studio in West Hollywood.

“Amy and Sheldon had a kiss this year, and that was a big deal for our characters,” Bialik said during the panel, which also featured “The Goldbergs” actress Wendi McClendon-Covey, “2 Broke Girls” star Beth Behrs, “Getting On’s” Laurie Metcalf and Ashely Rickards from MTV’s “Awkward.”

“It was really special to have such a monumental moment for our characters, but also as actors,” Bialik added.

The thesp also mentioned Metcalf’s memorable scene with Jim Parsons’ character on CBS’ hit series, saying, “Especially in a sitcom, for us to have those kind of serious moments, it’s special when they stand out.”

    You do know that Sheldon is gay don’t you?

  2. Rick says:

    This show used to be funny, but after two or three seasons it lost its charm.

  3. Scott says:

    She was good as CeeCee Bloom at 11 yrs. in Beaches.

  4. bubbabooey says:

    Big Bang Theory seemed pretty funny for the first couple seasons but it’s absolute dogshit now. There must be a lot of really lame, unimaginative people for this show to be so popular.

  5. Guirelmo Suarez says:

    I would not say that BBT has jumped the shark but it is always a bad sign when a comedy starts to weave in drama. Still worth a watch but nowhere near as sharp as the earlier stuff.

  6. bbfan says:

    bbt is still a fine show after all these years. it did, very much, surprise me that not one audience member laughed at a great line, delivered beautifully, by laurie metcalf, ‘we pray that sheldon gets back on his rocker.’ did noone in the whole audience get that joke? :( very sad….): btw, sheldon is never going to be a good bf for aff, r.i.p. but, stuart would be a great, interesting choice, and would pump new adventures & more energy into the show. XX fingers crossed XX. sheldon could keep us laughing with all the funny things they keep finding to put in his way. i love this whole cast, as well as the writers! thanks for all the laughs :) ps: congrats to simon and his wife on baby #2!

    In my humble opinion, next season they need to go back to comedy.

  9. Cho says:

    Big Bang is the best show on TV at this time. It is funny yet serious. The writing is so clever and “real” if you are a big nerdy geek like me and most of my frieds are. I hope it goes on for ever

  10. JJ Pendergraft says:

    Cry me a $100,000 + paycheck river. First world problems if you ask me.

  11. fatalreview says:

    so that’s why Big Bang is popular with the hipsters–it’s all their favorite childhood Nickelodeon and Disney Channel stars acting all grown up-nice trick still a lame show

  12. David says:

    It’s incredibly generous of her to be “uglied up” for the part, she carries it off with elan

  13. Couldn’t they chose a worse picture?

    • Kim says:

      “Plain” maybe. “Uglied up” is terribly unkind.

      • David says:

        You misunderstand. I think the lady in “real life” is fine, my point was they give her lank hair, minimal makeup and frumpy clothes – THEY ugly her up.
