Join Us On A Mission To Find The Best TBBT Guest Star Appearance

One thing Big Bang Theory is known for is its myriad of guest stars. The show’s producers and writers love to bring in science, tech, and comic icons. We’ve seen acclaimed scientists, famous actors, and tech gurus on the TBBT stage, and each has brought their own flair to the show. Guest stars often cause plot twists, start fights, or even create new characters entirely. Here are some of the best from through the years.

Stephen Hawking

Of course, no Big Bang Theory guest stars list would be complete without Stephen Hawking. The late scientist appeared on the show multiple times, causing quite a stir amongst the characters. In The Hawking Excitation Hawking comes to Cal Tech and is put under the care of Howard. Sheldon, eager to meet the physicist, is willing to become Howard’s slave, causing a whole host of hilarious scenarios. 

In this episode, Simon Helberg had to do an impression of Stephen Hawking, and he remembers it well. Hawking came to the set to watch the rehearsal, and Simon recalls, “It was just so surreal. They opened the giant stage doors and he was like silhouetted from behind… It was a man in a wheelchair with all these cool British guys behind him.”

The entire cast paid tribute to the physicist after his passing earlier this year. Mayim Bialik wrote, “As we near Pi day (3.14) I join the global community in mourning the loss of the greatest physicist of our era. #StephenHawking is free from the physical constraints of this earthly condition we all exist in and he is soaring above us now marveling at it all. Thank you Dr. Hawking for enlightening us and blessing us with your wisdom and courage.”

Clearly, the entire cast was moved and touched by knowing Hawking. His presence will always be missed.
