Actress Kaley Cuoco recently grabbed headlines as she opened up about the end of the hit TV series The Big Bang Theory during an interview.
Cuoco, who played Penny Hofstadter, one of the key characters on the popular show, explained that even though The Big Bang Theory ended sooner than expected after 12 seasons, her colleague, Jim Parsons, wanted to leave — she is grateful.
Cuoco was not angry at him at all because “that is what he felt he needed for himself at the time.”
Also, the 35-year-old actress stated that she did not know if her life would have taken this path if the series had not have ended at that point and described the last season as a “blessing in disguise.”
During her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the TV actress, and animal lover revealed: “I don’t know if it’s because I’m an Aries or just because maybe I’m in touch with myself. Whatever it is, once I had that thought, I was like, ‘Well, that’s your answer. And I think actually, I don’t know if my life would have taken this path if we hadn’t have ended, you know when we did. So maybe it was a blessing in disguise. You never know.”
Following the end of the popular TV series, Cuoco now stars with another leading role in the new show The Flight Attendant, which ended this week with a huge success, and many expect it to have a second season.
Parsons also talked about his decision to quit the iconic role of the brilliant scientist Sheldon Cooper in an interview from last year.
Back then, the actor stated: “It has been fascinating to think about who I was 12 years ago. And sometimes, when I have trouble learning a line or saying a line of Sheldon’s right now, it’s hard to know why specifically.”
He went on to reveal: ” But it’s like, you’re not the same person you were. There is a possibility that this actually became more difficult for you in a way. And I don’t know what that means, but it’s like you just change.”
He added that even though there was not any particular factor to influence his decision, he just knew it was the time to do so.
Since the end of The Big Bang Theory, Parsons has landed the role of Henry Willson in the new drama series Hollywood that was released on Netflix earlier this year.
