Kaley Cuoco's BiographyKaley Cuoco is an American actress, who achieved great fame and came second on the Forbes list of the most well-paid actresses through her role as Penny the waitress, who stole Leonard’s heart in the sitcom The Big Bang Theory.
Childhood and YouthKaley Christine Cuoco was born on the 30th of November 1985 in a small town of Camarillo, California. Her father, Harry Carmin Cuoco, an Italian by descent, initially worked as a fireman and then became a real estate agent. Her mother, Ann Laine Wingate, a daughter of English immigrants, looked after the house and children (Kaley has a younger sister Brianna, famous for her performance in season 5 of The Voice).
Early RolesIn 1992 the girl got a small part in the TV Series Quicksand with Donald Sutherland and ever since then, she started to regularly appear in various TV-shows.
In 2002 the young woman decided to step down from acting and fully commit to her cinema career after she had been offered the lead in the TV show 8 Simple Rules, which aired from 2002 to 2005 and made her famous throughout all America. This work was her first serious step towards the peak of fame, which also unveiled her potential as a comedian.
The Big Bang TheoryIn 2007 the Warner Brothers Television commenced the filming of the sitcom The Big Bang Theory about the life of two young physicists, completely out-of-touch with the reality, who due to this constantly end up in various incidents. Kaley was entrusted to portray their neighbor, blonde-haired waitress Penny: not a very bright girl, who is nonetheless full of worldly wisdom and is extremely seductive. One of the neighbors, Leonard, immediately falls for Penny, but, obviously, he is clueless about courting women. The other neighbor, Sheldon, fears women like the plague altogether. But all three of them have lessons to learn from each other.
Even after sustaining a serious injury in September 2010 during her equestrian training and facing the risk of losing her leg, Kaley managed to get back to filming in record time and wore a cast for several episodes, hiding it behind the bar.
