Kaley Cuoco, Mayim Bialik, and Melissa Rauch are all staples on the television comedy king The Big Bang Theory. However, these three TBBT stars were all very unique before joining the show. You might not know this about your favorite nerdy ladies…
Kaley Cuoco Is An Excellent Tennis Player
Before starring on TBBT Kaley Cuoco could be seen on the show 8 Simple Rules (For Dating My Teenage Daughter). However, she has other talents outside of acting. Kaley was ranked nationally in tennis and exhibits incredible athletic ability.
Perhaps that little fact has something to do with why she decided to marry a pro tennis player (Ryan Sweeting) later on in life. Of course, the marriage didn’t work out… and neither did the tennis. These days Kaley spends her time tending to her horses with boyfriend Karl Cook.
Mayim Bialik also had television success before TBBT. The star headed up the show Blossom back in the 1990s and was famous before she even graduated high school. Mayim then decided to take time off from acting, and she went to school for science. Mayim has a degree in neurobiology from UCLA. Rumor has it she also turned down major Ivy League schools to stay close to home in California.
Melissa Rauch Was A Big Fan
Melissa Rauch hadn’t been on any successful television shows like her fellow TBBT stars. However, she had seen the show plenty of times and was totally prepared to join the cast in Season 3.
Apparently, Melissa had always been the fan of the show and was ecstatic just to appear in one episode. She probably had no idea that her short guest spot would turn her into one of the most successful actresses on television.
