“We’ve had some group communication and then Kevin Sussman, who plays Stewart, he and I play like a D and D kind of game. We have [done this] been for years. We do nerd things together,” Bialik, 44, exclusively told Us Weekly on Wednesday, August 12, while promoting her Royal Canin partnership. “Jim Parsons and I, obviously, are producing [a new] show, but I’m also starring in [it and it’s called] Call Me Kat.”
The Blossom alum continued, “Melissa [Rauch] [and] I [have] talked to Simon [Helberg]. I actually wrote a screenplay and I’ve been wanting to cast him in this screenplay, so I was able to do that. I don’t know if we’ll get to make the movie ‘cause quarantine.”
The Big Bang Theory ran for 12 seasons on CBS from September 2007 to May 2019. Bialik joined the sitcom in season 3 as Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler, a neurobiologist who eventually married Parson’s character, Sheldon Cooper. For her efforts on the long-running show, she received four Primetime Emmy nominations.
“We miss the thing that kept us together,” Bialik explained to Us. “It’s also fun to follow and see what they’re doing and see … everybody’s life also.”
Though the real-life neuroscientist said that the acclaimed series “changed” her life, she has admittedly “never” seen an entire episode. “I don’t watch it,” she shared. “I mean, I would see bits like when they would show it to the audience before tape nights. But no, I don’t think I’ve ever properly seen a whole episode.”
Aside from reflecting on her Big Bang Theory days, Bialik opened up about working alongside Royal Canin for its Take Your Cat to the Vet initiative. The program is intended to inform cat owners about the importance of taking their felines in for annual checkups.
As a cat mom of three, Bialik wanted to raise awareness to the issue. “A lot of people assume that cats are so self-sufficient that, like, we’ll figure it out, but cats can often hide things that are wrong with them,” she explained. “It’s great to just get them in the habit of going for preventative care visits. That’s literally why I partnered [with] Royal Canin as a cat lover and as someone who wants to promote not only our mental health, but also the health of our babies.”
