The Big Bang Theory: The actress of the series who almost played Amy Farrah Fowler


The Big Bang Theory, one of the most successful sitcoms in recent decades on television, ran for twelve long seasons on the CBS broadcast network until May 2019 when it came to a conclusion. It’s been almost three years since that end, but the comedy series continues to grow its strong fan base around the world.

The series followed a group of scientific friends, who for 12 years focused on entertaining viewers with their stories and occurrences; especially by Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), a peculiar character described as uncomfortable, manic and eccentric, who came to know love with the arrival of neuroscientist Amy Farrah Fowler, played by Mayim Bialik.

Amy Farrah Fowler first appeared in season 3 of The Big Bang Theory. And after a long, tedious and complicated job, she eventually managed to get into the heart of Sheldon Cooper until she became his love interest, and they ended up getting married in season 11 of the hit sitcom.

In The Big Bang Theory, throughout her nine seasons on the CBS series Mayim Bialik managed to captivate viewers and endeared herself to many thanks to the excellent characterization of Amy Farrah Fowler in the series. However, fans were about to meet Amy Farrah Fowler being played by another actress from the same show.

When Mayim Bialik came to the casting process for The Big Bang Theory, an actress who played another character on the hit show had auditioned for the role of the neuroscientist. Kate Micucci, who played Lucy, a love interest of Raj Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar) in the sixth season, was about to stay with the character.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2013, actress Kate Micucci revealed that she originally auditioned for the role of Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory. She said the team had her as their first choice, but then they changed their minds when Mayim Bialik showed up.
