The season 10 finale of The Big Bang Theory was the cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers.
Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) appeared at Amy Farrah Fowler’s (Mayim Bialik) door and asked her to marry him – and we didn’t even get to see what she said!
Now, actress Mayim has told RadioTimes.com that she isn’t actually sure which way it’s going to go, and whether or not Amy will say she wants to marry Sheldon.
“I honestly don’t know what her response will be,” Mayim tells us. “And I could see her saying no or yes! It’s really up to our writers to come up with how this moment will play out, and they might not even know at this time which way they want to take it!”
Mayim, who says her “jaw hit the floor” when she read the script, also isn’t even sure if the show needs to see the couple tie the knot.
“I think there have been a lot of special occasions on the show already – several weddings and a baby,” she explains. “I’m not sure that we need to have a Sheldon/Amy wedding, but again, that’s up to the writers!”
Writers – take note. We NEED an Amy and Sheldon wedding. Especially because Mayim says that if there was to be a wedding that Sheldon “would definitely be a groomzilla, it would probably be Star Trek themed!” Amazing.
However, there could be one rather large Romona-sized problem in this plan. During season 10, Ramona (Riki Lindhome) kissed Sheldon in his office. Will Amy find out about this? And if she does, what will her reaction be?
“Ha, great question,” says Mayim. “It might be really funny for that to play out. I am sure it would be hilarious! She would either ask him to talk about it or tell him he never can…!”
Apparently work on season 11 will “begin soon” according to Mayim (yay!), but in the meantime she has her hands full being a mum and creating weekly videos for her YouTube channel.
She’s also having to schedule some rest after doctors told Mayim that she had sprained her vocal cords and couldn’t speak for a month.
“I’ve got a naturally raspy voice and my job involves…talking!” she explains to us via email. “I discovered I wasn’t using my voice correctly and had been straining my vocal chords a few years ago.
“There’s some pretty severe damage lately and my ENT has ordered me to not to use my voice for a whole month which is going to be very hard as I love to talk and need to talk! I am using my silent time to rehab my voice but it isn’t stopping me from advocating for the environment on behalf of SodaStream!”
