When we normally think of an actress we don’t care about their degrees.
Apparently, it doesn’t really matter if you have a college degree or not.
But this Big bang theory actress had gone out of her way to fulfill her thirst for knowledge.
Many of you might not know but Mayim Bialik who plays Amy not only had a Ph.D in Neuroscience in the series but also in real life.
Not only that but Mayim Bialik is the mother of two children.
The reason why I consider Mayim to be so different from others is not just her degree.
The actress is so full of energy. She has her own YouTube channel for those of who that don’t know it yet.
On her YouTube channel she talks about issues faced by women and just her life in general.
She designs her video around the ideas that are helpful for women.
Unlike some, Mayim is the most down to life person you can imagine being around.
Mayim Bialik, the mother of two children has also written her own book on Girling up and boying up.
Mayim Bialik’s Childhood and Early Acting Career
The Big bang theory actress’s real name is Mayim Chaya Bialik.
She was born in December of 1975 in a Jewish family which migrated to the New York City.
She completed her Secondary schooling from North Hollywood High School, California.
In 2000, the actress completed her undergraduate degree from UCLA on neuroscience.
Mayim’s acting career started pretty early. She had already started acting by the last 1980’s.
Her first role as an actress was in the horror movie Pumpkinhead.
Following this she acted in numerous Tv series and guest appeared in movies.
However, she is known the most for her role in the Tv series Blossom.
Re-starting her Acting Career
Mayim Bialik took a break from her studies in 2005 and returned to acting.
Nonetheless, she earned her Doctorate in Neuroscience on 2007.
She then returned to acting after getting the doctorate.
As she has says in multiple interviews, she re started her career in acting because her health insurance was running off.
Fortunately, she joined the cast of The big bang theory as Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler in 2010.
Even in the series, her role Amy was a neurobiologist who was the love interest of Sheldon Cooper, played by Jim parson.
Which if you watched the show, you know how weirdly interesting it was.
Why was she so Important in The Big Bang Theory
Mayim joined the cast of the big bang theory towards the finale of season 3.
She started off as a potential love interest of Sheldon Cooper acted by Jim parson.
Her role was quite different and almost opposite from Penny who is one of the protagonist of the show.
From her role, she has been able to tell many girls that it is actually possible for a girl to be able to reach such a height.
Maybe it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but the way she has been portrayed in the series is different.
Her role in TBBT is unique but very likeable. In the beginning of her role, Amy was quite socially awkward.
But in time we start adjusting to her geeky lifestyle. So, just like in her real life, in this role as a neuroscientist, Amy has made a mark and won people’s heart.
Her Personal Struggles
Unlike we think how easy her life must be having respected degree and an acting career, her struggles are pretty deep.
Mayim Bialik is quite upfront about the issues she has faced in her working career as an actress.
Although she has gotten some criticisms for speaking up for the me too movement.
Mayim Bialik got divorced with her husband on 2013. At that time her Mayim Bialik’s children were 4 and 7 so we know it wasn’t quite easy for her to get over it.
She has opened up about her divorce and how she copes with it in couple of her YouTube videos.
Similarly, she has opened up that she started acting again because her health insurance was running out.
Although she always says it in a funny way but we all know how difficult it might have been for her in that situation.
Likewise, she couldn’t continue her medical practice in neuroscience because her grades weren’t good enough.
Which is why she joined the Doctorate program.
Mayim Bialik has been fighting all her life to get the lifestyles she deserves.
Unlike others actors or actresses her roles haven’t always been on the highlight.
But she has made the best out of the opportunities that she has been given.
At the same time she shares and helps people out through her YouTube channel that might be going through the same problems as hers.
