One of the interesting additions to Big Bang Theory has been former "Blossom" star Mayim Bialik as Amy Farrah Fowler.
How many people on TV have this as part of their bios?
Bialik earned a BS from UCLA in 2000 in Neuroscience and Hebrew and Jewish Studies, and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from UCLA in 2007. Her thesis in psychoneuroendocrinology examined Hypothalamic Secretions and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in adolescents with Prader-Willi syndrome.
Her comedy doesn't need work, but her website does. At least she's got one picture in the gallery..
