‘Big Bang Theory’ star Mayim Bialik talks Amy, Sheldon, new episodes and her PhD in neuroscience

The Big Bang Theory is certainly one of the biggest shows on television and actress Mayim Bialik has seen her career take a major turn with her role as Amy on the sitcom.

Bialik is touting science and math education for women at a fundraiser for the Yeshiva Atlanta High School Sunday afternoon at Georgia Tech and spoke to Access Atlanta in a Thursday interview. The Blossom star acknowledges her character is ever-changing, but not from input from her.

Fans are clamoring for Amy and Sheldon to atleast kiss, if not go further, so the Bialik teased the conclusion of season 6.

“There are some big episodes coming up. The second to last episode has some moments that address that.”

Amy has a “bestie” on the show, Penny (played by Kaley Cuoco), but have little in common.

“I don’t know. My best friend and I are not a lot alike in a lot of ways. But there are enough things we enjoy doing together and being a part of that makes us besties. I think anything is really possible.”

Few fans may be aware that Bialik has an actual PhD in neuroscience and now plays a character with that degree.

“It’s fun. It’s a great opportunity to put a positive face and a public face on female scientists. I think it makes it convenient because I can memorize my lines easier.”
