The Flight Attendant season 2 is on its way, but actress and producer Kaley Cuoco has already got her post-Flight Attendant career all mapped out.
And, in a surprising twist, it might not involve acting.
Following the murder mystery drama’s Emmy nomination success, Kaley has been reflecting on her time both on and off camera with The Flight Attendant, telling Variety what her “goal” is for the future.
Revealing that she plans to take on more roles behind the scenes, the Big Bang Theory favourite explained: “I can totally see my path being solely in producing down the line.
“I told [Flight Attendant executive producer Greg] Berlanti, their whole team, ‘I want your offices.’ So when they go take over and get an entire building, I want where they are. That’s my goal.”
It hasn’t always been that way, though, with Kaley admitting that she originally had “no interest… at all” in the production side of showbusiness – until she worked on her latest HBO Max venture.
“Obviously, this has been my very first experience with it,” she said of The Flight Attendant. “I’ve learned a lot from my fellow producers, I learned that I don’t know as much as I thought, and how much of a team effort it takes to put a show on.”
Kaley added: “It makes me have massive respect for everything that airs because I know how hard it is to get it up and running. It’s made me a lot less judgmental. And I have major gratitude towards what happens behind the scenes.”
Does Kaley’s new-found interest in production mean that there’s only one season left of her as Cassie Bowden? We’ll have to wait and see.
The Flight Attendant, based on the book of the same name by Chris Bohjalian, airs on Sky One and NOW in the UK and HBO Max in the US.
