Mayim Bialik's
Biggest Challenge
On The Big Bang
Theory Might
Surprise You
Since Maym Bialik’s return to acting, it's hard to nail down her biggest role: her portrayal of Amy Farrah Fowler for nine seasons of "The Big Bang Theory," her starring role on the Fox sitcom "Call Me Kat," or her gig as one of the hosts of "Jeopardy!". However, Bialik found one part of her job on "The Big Bang Theory" to be particularly challenging.
In a 2015 interview, Mayim Bialik shared that the biggest challenge in playing Amy was to make sure that her character was distinctly different from her co-star Jim Parsons' portrayal of Sheldon Cooper. "​​Everybody loves Jim Parsons, and we don't need another Jim Parsons," Bialik said.
She revealed that this was especially difficult because of her lack of classical training as an actor. "Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting and I are the only ones who didn't go to conservatory," Bialik admitted. "I do feel a certain sense of inadequacy sometimes. I worry about it. Is my process adequate? But that's also the nice thing. [I]t's such a gentle cast. We all help each other out."
