The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik has admitted she has never actually watched an episode of the long-running sitcom.
Despite playing Amy Farrah Fowler from 2010 until the show’s conclusion last year, the actress revealed that, in general, she never watches herself on TV.
“I’ve never seen most of the episodes,” Bialik told Metro. “I don’t watch myself on television. I’ve never sat and watched an episode of our show, ever.”
She added: “I’ve seen snippets on stage when they would show them to the audience but no, I don’t watch myself. I saw pieces [of the last episode] but I was in it, you know?”
The actress also spoke about bringing the show to an end a year ago, recalling: “The whole cast, we kind of talked about it together, but I think the reality of it ending took a long time for it to really settle in.
“What felt the strangest wasn’t when we finished filming in the spring, it was in the fall when we would have been going back to work.”
She added that filming the last episode was a “very emotional” experience for her and the rest of the cast.
“There was a lot of conversation about do we film it in front of a live audience. Or, do we film it just us so we have that moment just us? Kaley Cuoco, in particular, would share on social media what we were all experiencing and it was very surreal.
“It’s very surreal to be a part of a job for 10 years, which in any climate I think is really an accomplishment, but we were together not only as cast members but as a presence on the television. It’s kind of like a double identity which makes it even more complicated and beautiful.”
