Kaley Cuoco

Kaley Cuoco (pronounced as Coo-oh-ko), was born on the November 30th, 1985 to Gary Carmine Cuoco and Layne Ann Wingate, in Camarillo, California. Kaley, both a gifted tennis player and theatrical prodigy, already started playing tennis at the age of 3, her first career aspiration. At age 6 she began to model and appeared in a community theater playing roles in a stage production of "Annie" and "Fiddler on the Roof".

Her first real role in showbiz came in the made-for-TV movie entitled "Quicksand: No Escape" in 1992, starring Donald Sutherland. This led to several small-screen work and guest appearances on shows such as Northern Exposure, My So-Called Life, Ellen, and her portrayal of Maureen on "Growing Up Brady" and Bonnie Stiles on "Ladies Man" in 1999 - both bringing her much attention. In the silver screen, her first real gig was in the 1995 movie "Virtuosity", where she played Karin alongside Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe. Later she had a cameo appearance in Jennifer Aniston's "Picture Perfect" in 1997.

After tons of auditions and rejections, Kaley finally got her big break on 2002 when she landed the role of Bridget Hennessy, the air-headed hot blonde on "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter", alongside Amy Davidson, Martin Spanjers, Katey Segal and TV veteran comedian John Ritter, whom Kaley grew especially close to. It would be in this show (8 Simple Rules) that Kaley would be more noticed, earning her a spot in the 8th season of the hit TV series Charmed and in the 2004 movie "The Hollow".

Recently she starred in the movie "To be Fat Like Me" which premiered on January of 2007. She currently star in CBS's new hit comedy show, "The Big Bang Theory". In her spare time, Kaley still plays tennis and continues to further her skills.
