Kaley Cuoco Almost Didn’t Make It On ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Because She Was Too Young

Kaley Cuoco is one of the most beloved characters on The Big Bang Theory, both on the show itself and in fans’ hearts everywhere. However, she almost didn’t land the role pack in 2007, when she first auditioned. Here’s what happened to bring Cuoco to set and Penny to screens for all of America to fall in love with.

Cuoco Was “Too Young” To Play Original Big Bang Character

CBS ran two pilots for The Bing Bang Theory when it first aired. The original featured both Leonard and Sheldon, but instead of their other nerdy friends, there were two female characters named Katie and Gilda.

Kaley auditioned for Katie in 2007, but she didn’t get the part. In an interview, she said, “I didn’t get [the original role called Katie] the first time around. I was too young, which I love saying because I don’t get to say that I’m too young anymore.”

CBS Casts Cuoco As Penny

The role of “Katie” was portrayed as a tough, cynical female lead equally as dorky as Sheldon and Leonard. Luckily, CBS decided that a more youthful and non-nerd woman was needed in the cast, and Cuoco was cast for the part of Penny.

Cuoco has played Penny for over 12 seasons, and her role has evolved from the doe-eyed waitress to a successful businesswoman and amazing wife. CBS announced that this year would be the last for The Bing Bang Theory, to which Cuoco has assured fans, “…we promise to bring you the best season yet.”

Last Big Bang Season To Air May 2019

The last episode will be completed by the end of April, with the last season airing in May 2019.  Fans are sad to see the series go, but will forever appreciate the 12 seasons that it was enjoyed.

Kaley Cuoco will be 33 but is still as youthful and enjoyable to watch as she was when she started on The Big Bang Theory. Fans are excited to see what she does next now that she’s a full-fledged T.V. star.

When Real-Life Plays A Part In TV Plotlines

Not every show has its plot lined out from the moment the pilot airs, and still, sometimes real-life can get in the way. Even the best laid plans can go awry, and sometimes plotlines are created entirely to accommodate an actor’s unexpected personal issue. From pregnancies to off-set injuries (and of course plenty of on-set injuries), writers are reworking scripts so that you’d never know something else was happening behind the scenes. Think you know why an actor exited a show? We’ll bet you didn’t even realize that some major show plots happened out of serendipity. Read on to find out how in some cases, the truth really is stranger than fiction.
