Kaley Cuoco Says 'Big Bang Theory' 'Made Science Kind of Sexy'

Kaley Cuoco recognizes that it’s no easy feat to get a television show pilot on air. And it’s probably no surprise that getting a show picked up for an additional 10 seasons isn’t any easier.

In a conversation with Anthony Anderson as part of Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” series, Cuoco discussed Penny, the character she’s been playing on “The Big Bang Theory” for the past 10 years.

“They fell in love early on with these four guys and wanted them to get the girl, wanted them to get the job, and it made science kind of sexy,” she said about the show’s fans.

The interview will air in its entirety on Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” Season 6, presented by Shutterstock, which premieres Tuesday on PBS SoCal.
