...is now Amy Farrer Fowler on The Big Bang Theory!

Dh just researching her (to find out how old she is) and he says, oh she was in something called Blossom! (he's not big on American crap socilally aware teenager shows).

Thought she looked familiar. Loving the new BBT series too, top viewin gin our house! grin

I thought she had become a neurosurgeon! Did I fall for an urban myth??

Clary Fri 26-Aug-11 22:02:04

No I think she is a scientist of some kind in real life.

There was a reference to her earlier on TBBT (I read this on Wiki, I am not a nerd or anything) when they were going to get the actress from Blossom to come to some event "because she's a scientist now".

Unbelievable eh? Tho of course it is clearly her when you think about it. She must have been older when Blossom than I ever thought.

Did you not know that??
New series starts September 21/22 in the states so shouldn't be too long for us!

I'm dying to see the Raj/Penny/Leonard/Priya fallout.

Love TBBT!!!! Amy is a great addition to the cast grin

Yeah well Leonard on Roseanne is clear, he's pretty famous anyway.

I guess Blossom had very different hair and to me looked about 13; while Amy F-F looks more like 39, so toooo toooo old to be Blossom.

But then Blossom of course is about 20 yrs ago <gasp> I think I am guilty of telescoping time again!

Leonard has to get back with Penny surely?

Acekicker Sat 27-Aug-11 11:05:42

Yep - her and Danica McKellar (Wonder Years) both moved from being child-stars to academics...Danica McKellar even has some mathematical theorem named after her.

I've got a time telescope too, it saddens me that Blossom is now 35, how the hell can that much time have passed?!

PersonalClown Sat 27-Aug-11 11:07:20

Am I the only one that loves Amy when she's drunk?

'My burps taste of cranberries!' grin

belgo Sat 27-Aug-11 11:07:43

grin I have only ever seen half an episode, but I did recognise her! I really like her.

ThePosieParker Sat 27-Aug-11 11:11:03

She was also the young Cece Bloom in Beaches.

BerryLellow Sat 27-Aug-11 11:15:24

She has a blog somewhere about mother stuff...

here

NanBullen Sat 27-Aug-11 11:36:55

Um, she says she didn't introduce solids until her son was 12 months old, did I read that right?

Ciske Sat 27-Aug-11 11:45:06

Leonard was in Roseanne, where he was the love interest of Roseanne's daughter Darlene, played by Sara Gilbert... who plays Leslie Winkle in TBBT.

ThePosieParker Sat 27-Aug-11 11:45:37

She doesn't force 'please and thank you'? WTF?

NanBullen Sat 27-Aug-11 12:13:12

I don't think I'll be reading her blog, not my style of parenting at all grin

belgo Sat 27-Aug-11 12:19:44

But she is labelling herself, she is defining herself as the classic 'attachment parenting' Where is her actual blog? Or is it just a one off article about how long she breastfed for etc?

TaudrieTattoo Sat 27-Aug-11 16:49:57

God, but that blog was smug.

I preferred her knocking about with Six in a velvet hat.

BreakOutTheKaraoke Sat 27-Aug-11 19:58:00

oh wow, a BBT thread! I love that programme, have just watched it back to back to catch up on it. Can't WAIT to see what happens with Raj! I really dislike Priya, but that could be because I have girly crush on Leonard.

Clary Sat 27-Aug-11 20:38:27

Yeah we all hate Priya, not sure how Leonard is going to be dissuaded tho.

There was a point a bit ago when she was being all controlling and trying to change him but it seems to have eased off now.

"I preferred her knocking about with Six in a velvet hat."

With a big daisy on the front, right? I can't believe Blossom was so long ago either.

TryLikingClarity Mon 29-Aug-11 20:23:04

She had her first DS in 2005, had the next one in 2008 and in between that she got her PhD in 2007.

Wow, she's smart and must be organised.

Her blog did seem really smug though....
