The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting doesn’t have much to worry about, especially now that she’s getting $1 million per episode. She also doesn’t worry about being typecast in Penny-style roles for the rest of her career. In fact, she said it “would be the greatest thing in the world.”
Cuoco, who married Ryan Sweeting on New Year’s Eve, appears on the cover of the new issue of Women’s Health. In the interview, she admitted that she will take any acting gig offered her. If that means that she’s playing the same character for the rest of her career, she’s fine with it.
“I was telling someone last night, people always say, ‘Oh my god, you're going to be typecast' and if I really was typecast as Penny or the girl next store it would be the greatest thing in the world, then I have a job forever playing that,” Cuoco, 28, told the magazine, reports E! News.
She continued, “That is kind of how I look at it, if this is what I do forever fine, but I'll try and do as many things as possible and experience the whole world of acting, as silly as that sounds, but I love all aspects of it but comedy is definitely number one.”
Cuoco also gushed about married life, saying that Sweeting is always there for her. “I have someone to eat with, to talk to, to have a drink with, to cry with to be anything I need to be, he will always going to be there and the same for him,” she said.
This week was a busy one for Cuoco and her co-stars. Production started on Wednesday for season eight after all five of the show’s stars signed new contracts with big pay raises. Cuoco, Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki will reportedly earn $1 million per episode.
Cuoco won’t exactly have to worry about playing Penny-like roles, since she will be playing Penny for another three years. The show was picked up through season 11 and the new contracts cover the stars through that year.
