Kaley Cuoco has described how her father sat in the audience for every single episode of The big Bang Theory.
The flight attendant Star played Penny on the long-running sitcom, which aired for 279 episodes from 2007 to 2019.
The show was filmed in front of a live studio audience, with Cuoco getting emotional on Monday night’s (May 23) episode The Late Late Show when she told James Corden about her father Gary’s dedication to the series.
“He had a director’s chair with his name on it,” she recalls. “He never sat in it. He always stood. And every night for curtain and loops and for intros he was right up there and gave me a thumbs up.”
The cast and crew always gave Gary a thumbs up, and Cuoco continued, “In the end, the entire audience did it. It was like a weekly thing. It was just something really special for all of us.”
She said her father “still misses” being part of the show’s tapings, saying, “I couldn’t do a show without him at that point, it was years ago. I always thought you can’t miss one now, you’re part of the show.”
Cuoco recently reprized the role of Cassie in the second season of The flight attendantWhich The Independent‘s Amanda Whiting gave it a four-star rating.
The flight attendant Season two arrives on Sky Atlantic and Now on Thursday 26 May.
