Kaley Cuoco Reveals Reason She Was Originally Rejected From ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Role

Kaley Cuoco admitted she almost didn’t land the role of Penny in “The Big Bang Theory”.

The actress, 33, said in a new interview how bosses thought she was too young when she auditioned for the original role of Katie.

Cuoco shared, according to Cinema Blend: “I didn’t get [the original role] the first time around. I was too young, which I love saying because I don’t get to say that I’m too young anymore.

“Then, a year later, I heard they were doing it again, and they brought me back in to read for Penny.”

She recently spoke about the bits and pieces she’s desperate to take from the set before the much-loved show comes to an end with an hour-long episode on May 16.

Cuoco said of a photo of robots boxing, “It’s something that I love so much and I’ve looked at it for 12 years.”

She added, according to People: “It’s always in my eyeline from where I sit in the living room set, so I’m glad I’m going to put it in my own living room so I’ll see it forever.

“A lot of people want a lot of things, so I’ve already marked that one. It looks super random and weird but it’s overly special to me.”
