The actor elaborated on season 7 and the Serial Apeist episode which followed her character’s arc as a struggling small-town beauty who aspires to make it big in Hollywood. Cuoco who had to be covered completely with hair resembling an ape, was extremely reluctant for the scene to appear in the show.

In Jessica Radloff’s book, The Big Bang Theory: The Definitive, Inside Story of the Epic Hit Series (via Startefacts), she recalled the physical discomfort she felt in a costume that also made her look ridiculous.

The worst experience was filming Serial Apeist and getting covered in hair from head to toe. I was like, ‘Really, you guys? This is what’s happening?’ And Chuck (Lorre) just thought it was so funny. He loved it. I never understood why.

Cuoco suggested that the scene and the entire storyline be cut from the show as she felt that it was not the best thing for her character to go through at that point. But her opinion did not find favor with creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady. As it turned out, audiences lapped up this episode wholeheartedly as well.

All 12 seasons of The Big Bang Theory can be streamed on Max.
