As you have probably heard by now, there was some shocking news in the “Big Bang Theory” family was last week when actress Mayim Bialik — best known for her role as Sheldon’s main squeeze Amy Farrah Fowler — was injured in a car accident that caused her some pretty bad injuries to her hand and finger. While she was able to return to work the very next day in some serious pain, that does not mean that we are going to see the same exact Amy in the season premiere September 27 than we have in he past.
Speaking on this very subject in a new interview with TVLine, here is some of what Bialik had to say about how the writers and the director are adapting to the injury so that it appears as though Amy is doing fine:
“Mark Cendrowski is an amazing director, so it’s not going to be obvious. We’re going to work around it … As long as you don’t see me walking and swinging my arm awkwardly, we’re making it work.
“I will not be playing the harp for some time … One of the worst things] is not having the dexterity, and one of the reasons I went back to work was to give our writers the opportunity to see what it looked like, to see how I moved and see what we’d need to work on.”
The team at “The Big Bang Theory” are pretty used to dealing with injuries — it was only a matter of a couple of years ago where Kaley Cuoco was written out for an episode or two in order to deal with a severe break that she had while out horseback riding. It’s always good to adapt when you work on a scripted show, and it is in this way that the producers will be prepared.
