Back in 1995, Mayim Bialik had to say goodbye to her show Blossom after five seasons. Now, more than 20 years later, she’s going to say the same to The Big Bang Theory after being part of the cast since 2010.
The 42-year-old recently sat down with In Touch Weekly to discuss her thoughts and feelings on getting ready to film the final episode of the successful sitcom next April. “It’s emotional,” Mayim revealed, adding that she’s trying to “capture every moment.” Mayim also understands that it’s best not to take these final moments for granted. “Every week kind of feels like, ‘This is the last time we’ll be doing this kind of script.’ It’s been such a long run, and so it’s kind of hard to imagine life after this.”
But when The Big Bang Theory wraps up, will Miyam stay in touch with the pals on the show? “I can’t imagine that we wouldn’t!” Mayim said. “I actually had a dream that we all went hiking together, and I was telling everybody, ‘Why didn’t we do this before?'”
Miyam also revealed who on the show she is closest with, saying, “Melissa [Rauch] and I are probably closest. Jim [Parsons] as well. I’m Simon’s [Helberg’s] biggest fan, so I think it creeps him out that he’s the person I want to stay in touch with the most. I’ve known Johnny Galecki since we were 14, so we’ll be part of each other’s lives in some way.” It’s pretty clear that Mayim will take a lot of memories of the show with her. “It’s different than a family or friendship. It’s fun to get scripts and see how we’ll work together to create comedy,” she shared.
One thing is for sure, Mayim will still have plenty to do when the CBS show ends next year. Mayim is a mom to two children with her ex-husband Michael Stone: 13-year-old Miles and 10-year-old Fred. “One of my secrets to getting so many things done is that I don’t sleep a lot!” joked Mayim, who not only runs the website Grok Nation but also recently partnered with mattress brand Nectar Sleep to remind everyone how important a good night’s sleep is. And hey, Mayim has a degree in neuroscience so she probably knows what she’s talking about.
