Interview with ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Star Mayim Bialik

November 21, 2011

Mayim Bialik has come a long way since her days as a child actor. After starring on the 1990′s sitcom ‘Blossom,’ she went to UCLA for undergrad and grad school resulting in a PhD in neuroscience. She got married, became a mom, and is now a star on another hit show. While accomplishing all of that, she also found the time to write a book called ‘Beyond the Sling’ about attachment parenting.

Millions of girls, including myself, grew up watching Mayim play Blossom. The fast talking, philosophical, smartest-person-in-the-room character served as a great role model for young women. Unlike many child stars, Bialik managed to avoid the rabbit hole of fame. Now, she’s back to acting with her role as neurobiologist, and girlfriend to Sheldon Cooper(!), Amy Farrah Fowler in Chuck Lorre’s hit ‘The Big Bang Theory.’

I had the chance to interview the star and find out more about her upcoming book, vegan diet, environmental activism, parenting style and more.
