Big Bang Theory” star Mayim Bialik is well-known for playing Jim Parsons’ onscreen partner Amy, one of the smartest characters in the hit CBS sitcom.

But before landing the role of Amy in “Big Bang Theory,” Bialik first starred in the 1988 series, “Beaches.” In the show, she played the role of CC Bloom. While speaking with Entertainment Weekly’s “The Show,” the award-winning actress opened up about her role in “Beaches,” “Bloom,” “Big Bang Theory” and more.

According to the actress, all of the scenes where CC is under the boardwalk were shot in Brooklyn. Initially, they shot the scene in Coney Island to make it look like CC is in Atlantis City. However, director Gary Marshall wasn’t pleased with how it looked, so he recreated it in Brooklyn.

After starring in “Beaches,” Bialik appeared in eight episodes of “Webster” as a nerdy character named Freeda. After “Beaches,” Bialik also appeared in three episodes of “MacGyver” before she landed a role in “Blossom.” The actress was also featured in the 100th episode of the series, and as part of their celebration, Richard D. Anderson took her to the event as his date.

For five years, Bialik starred in “Blossom” as Blossom Russo. The actress started appearing on the show at the age of 14. While working on the show, Bialik got the chance to meet her “Big Bang Theory” co-star Johnny Galecki, who guest-starred in the series. In fact, Galecki and Bialik also shared a kiss on screen.

Following “Blossom,” Bialik played the role of a lesbian character in “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” She admitted that she didn’t have any idea that Jodi was a lesbian and only found out much later on in the series.

At present, she stars in “Big Bang Theory” as Amy Farrah Fowler. But Bialik admitted that she never saw an episode of the CBS sitcom before she auditioned for the role. Bialik was aware that the name was mentioned in the show, but she thought they said it as an answer to a game show-related question.

“Big Bang Theory” Season 11 will premiere on CBS on Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. EDT.
