Mayim Bialik Series Regular for THE BIG BANG THEORY November 16, 2010 News, The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory is getting another female regular, according to Ausiello. Blossom star Mayim Bialik has been made a series regular, just weeks after Melissa Rauch (Howard’s girlfriend ‘Bernadette’) was given the same promotion. Bialik plays Amy Farrah Fowler, the ‘girl who’s a friend, not a girlfriend’ of main character Sheldon Cooper. Part female-Sheldon, part Sheldon’s foil, Amy has appeared in five episodes to date. The deal currently only lasts for season 4 and does not require Bialik to be in all episodes. What do you think of the news? Are you looking forward to Amy being in more episodes?
