Mayim Bialik is a recent addition to the cast of the hit CBS show ‘The Big Bang Theory’, but she’s managed to make it seem as though she’s always been there. Bialik has an interview with Zap2It, and one of the things she talks about is how surprised she was when she heard that she had been nominated.
When asked about whether she was surprised at her nomination, she says, “Extremely. I think on a scale of one to 10, it was a 10. I was not expecting to be nominated. It was not on my radar. I knew that announcements were being made, but I was actually on a phone interview. I was staying with my best friend in Atlanta. We were, after my phone interview, getting the boys into the car to go to the Legoland Atlanta Discovery Center. It was not on our radar that I might get nominated. So I went, after I got off the phone with my interview, I said, Oh they've probably made the announcements. ... And I went to go to the Internet on my phone and instead it rang and it was my publicist from Los Angeles.”
She also adds, “I don't know if it's that I don't think I'm worthy, but there are such incredible women in this category and there were so many women up for this nomination. I just -- it was completely unexpected. And yeah, I don't even know why. I'll have to ask my therapist.”
