Kevin Sussman was one of the most memorable because he used an improv line with Penny to become a regular on the show. Some fans might not agree, but Aarti Mann as Priya was another memorable part of the show. That just means she did her job well enough. Kate Micucci was also a part of the sitcom. She not only played a role on-screen but also worked as a producer behind the scenes. We’ll talk about her time on the show and how she thinks Simon Helberg is underrated.
Kate Micucci From painting to acting
When she was young, Kate Micucci had a different plan that had to do with art. She wanted to become a toymaker, but as she worked toward that goal, other doors opened, like the chance to do voice work.
She told Under The Radar Mag about the change in her plans: “I wanted to be a toy designer; that was my big plan. I started making sculptures, then puppets, and then I started putting on shows with those puppets. Then I thought, “Man, maybe I could do voiceovers.” Because it was a lot of fun to make all the puppets talk. So, it went from painting and drawing to sculpture, puppets, voiceovers, and acting. And I still love puppets! I have a puppet on my refrigerator.”
Micucci had said that comedy and improv were things she knew nothing about, but she ended up doing well in those fields. She also became a big fan of Broadway musicals, giving her many ideas about how to act.

“When it comes to music, I’m crazy about the Broadway musical Waitress. Sara Bareilles wrote all the music, and I saw it a few weeks ago. It’s amazing. Beautiful, the Carol King Musical’s lead girl, Jessie Mueller, won the Tony Award, and she’s amazing in this show. I’ve been listening to that music on my iPod a lot.”
Since she used to make toys, she has come a long way. Now, she has a big part in The Big Bang Theory, both on-screen and behind-the-scenes.
Kate Micucci had much to do with the show’s ideas behind the scenes.
At first, it was a job as a producer on the sitcom. Micucci says that her musical skills and ability to make people laugh drew her to the show. It was Steve Molaro who came up with the idea. The actress talked to The Hollywood Reporter about how she got on the sitcom and what went on behind the scenes.
On the show, her job was writing a song for Wolowitz about Bernadette. “They suggested that Wolowitz sings about what his life would be like without Bernadette,” she said. It took a week to make the song, and Micucci was surprised by how little of it the show changed.
Kate Micucci thought that Simon Helberg was a good actor.
“He probably would still live with his mother.” And for us, it was pretty exciting to rhyme “hopes” with “inseparable isotopes.” That was part of what made making the song so fun. Kate had a great time coming up with ideas and was impressed by how quickly Helberg learned the song. It was all done in one shot.
“Every day, we were on set. It was so fun to see Simon and the rest of the cast sing it. Simon is such a great actor and musician that he always makes us cry. “There was only one take on the day of the live recording. Simon nailed it.” This is just another thing that shows Simon’s greatness behind the scenes. After his time on the sitcom, he played some significant roles, so it’s no surprise that his career has kept going strong.
