Emmy nominee Mayim Bialik on nerd role models and nerd romance

"Big Bang Theory" actress Mayim Bialik finds it interesting that she was seated on the far end of the show's San Diego Comic-Con panel last Friday, next to the producers.

"It's my best kept secret," she joked to reporters a few hours later. "I belong much more with them."

As a neuroscientist, she feels a kinship with the brains behind the machine, as well as a connection with many of those who attend fan conventions.

“I love our cast and I love actors, but I also love comic books and sci-fi," she said, "so I am the one [on the cast] who is most 'Comic-Con friendly.'"

And the question on everyone's minds at Comic-Con when it came to her character, Amy Farrah Fowler (for which she was nominated for an Emmy on Thursday), was where her relationship with Sheldon (fellow Emmy nominee Jim Parsons) might go next.

“I actually think it’s kind of sweet that it’s crawling along at this stage," she said of their characters' romance.

"We’ve seen some signs like me in the Star Trek uniform – where he might see things my way. And in the season finale when he held my hand, it was very telling. I love the sparring that Amy and Sheldon do verbally. I love the non-romantic aspects of their romance, I think that’s really sweet."

Bialik has a special place in her heart for Jim Parsons as well, and she leaned over to kiss his image on a TV monitor, as he was broadcast to the panel via satellite from New York.

She also sees the character of Amy as a positive development for women in science.

"There are no comments about Amy’s attractiveness or lack of attractiveness. [Sheldon] likes her as she is. As far as we know, it’s really irrelevant. He’s really attracted to her mind. Their sparks are intellectual."

But is Amy a role model for young girls?

“I leave that to my personal life," she said.

"I’m a spokesperson for Texas Instruments, it’s my second year with them. But our show, in general, has raised the bar for geekdom and I think that’s really special."

As for which nerdy guest star she would like to see on the show next, she said it's pretty hard to top Stephen Hawking last season.

"I have some particular neuroscience people that I’d love to see," she said.

"I was off when Leonard Nimoy was on, which, personally, was horrible not to be there. For Stephen’s episode, I also wasn't there, but I was invited to his 70th birthday party, along with [executive producers Bill Prady and Steve Molaro]. He came by for a run-through and we heard Stephen was coming in, and it was my first day back. I got to meet him there so that was really thrilling. But I think Bill would like to get every ‘Star Trek’ cast member ever for the show."

    A very simple way to make money online is to write blogs. Surely you know what a blog is. It is an online diary. All you need to start is a blog site that you can get for free in some blogging platforms. There are also platforms where you can buy a site if you want it to be professional looking so the choice is yours. After getting a site, choose a topic that will be the focus of your blog site. It has to be something you really know a lot about because you will be expected to write quality articles as often as you can. At this point you may be wondering where the money will come from. Money will come from advertisers who will post their ads on your site. You can get advertisers by enlisting your blog in advertising networks. They will be the ones to look for advertisers for you. All you need is to make sure that your blog site gets a lot of readers regularly.;-^:

    With best regards

    something like:Filed under: [Foldername].You can then easily sacerh inbox, sent items etc for that keyword. And file. It wont work for new emails being sent to you but it will help you keep track of those that you have sent, which is usually more important (those are the ones you have gotten yourself committed to).

    Too bad this show is a lame attempt to cash in on the whole nerd fad that's been going on lately. It's painfully obvious that the writers have no idea what nerdy culture is really like and aren't really trying to understand, preferring instead to make stupid references to MMOs and movies that make no sense whatsoever. It's unfunny, pandering trash that only serves people who like to say "I've played a video game once, I'm such a nerd!"

      When we were that age, everyone was attracted to everyone else. However the nerdy guys and the nerdy girls were often too shy to talk to each other. Both sides were trying to as hard to stay unnoticed as possible, as bringing notice themselves will only bring ridicule. As a being placed as the Nerd (back when it was uncool) only the "Popular Girls" would ask me out, not out of attraction but out of some twisted sense of messing with people. So yes the Nerdy girls wouldn't talk to the nerdy guys will until late in highscool or in college.

      It is a major problem, but in the exeaplms that you have given it takes no time at all for them to respond to just acknowledge they have received your email / enquiry and get back to it as soon as poss, and if they haven't had a chance to get back to you properly for a while to just send an update to you.

My Granddaughter graduated the beginning of June and it was one of the proudest days of her Momma's life. If it wasn't for her kind donor she would not be here 19 years after being diagnosed with Leukemia. Thank you to everyone who takes that step to commit to making a difference in another's life and the lives of their families.

      You're awfully defensive, aren't you? Maybe people said you look like her, so that's why you care so much.

      It's not like she's gonna read this and send you a thank-you note for roaring to her defense. You're spending a lot of energy on somebody who probably can't give half a frack what random people say online. The web is full of jackals. Deal with it or stick to the Precious Moments message boards.

    I LUV Mayim Bialik! I honestly think she should be theTime Magazine Woman of the Year for 2012.
    She is a great comidienne on Big Bang Theory (I hope she wins the Emmy), a renowned author, a Vegan, a mother, a wife, an actress, a super-Jewess...and I hear she also sings and dances, not to mention her Ph.D. What a woman! I think she is cute and attractive in an off-beat way.

    Love the show. To be truthful, in my experience most 'geek' relationships follow the other relationships on the show, not the Sheldon/Amy pairing. That being said, I've seen one or two that were like that.

    And geeks go for brains a lot of the time. Not all of the time, They have just as many instances of 'white knight syndrome' as the average guy. But they tend to prefer someone they can talk to about what interests them, and someone who can challenge them.

    Sheldon has become far more than the relatively one dimensional character he was at the beginning. We just mainlined the series from the beginning in the past couple months, and it was quite noticeable.

    Still... of the four, I'd want Leonard. 🙂 (Sheldon is to odd at times, and I've met too many Howards and Rajs over the years.)

    Let's see – Mayim Bialik – pretty, not a stunning beauty, PhD, married for 9 years, has been on two sucessful series, no relationship to "famous" parents.


    Kim" Kardashian – Beautiful – married twice, once for 2 months, only claim to fame is a reality TV show, possibly due to her connection to another famous person (Bruce Jenner – also remember Princes of Malibu?) – no indication of education past high school.

    I'd take Ms. Bialik in a heartbeat.......

      She also thinks kids should breast feed until they are 20….

      July 20, 2012 at 8:46 am |
      • Kohaku

        No, she doesn't. You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. She agrees with the World Health Organization in that children should be breastfed until the age of two, and however long thereafter is desired. That doesn't mean twenty. It doesn't even mean seven. Humans self-wean by roughly the age of four, if not earlier, but are supposed to be nursed (MINIMUM) until 6 months at the very least. Two year is supposed to be the healthiest goal if you don't plan on allowing the child to self wean. Kindly educated yourself before you spout nonsense.

        July 27, 2012 at 2:37 pm |
    • Will

      Kardashian's claim to fame was having a rich lawyer father who was famous in Southern California (and barely a blip on the radar anywhere else, but as goes SoCal, so goes the world, I guess), and then being filmed getting la id by some D-list rapper who wasn't famous anywhere. And if you think she's beautiful, take a look at her without the make-up and photo shop. If it weren't for the SoCal paparazzi machine and her daddy's money her looks might get her a job at Hoo ters in a small city, but that's it.

      I'll take Bialik

        First of all, there should be a comma after "First of all". Secondly, "At all." is not a sentence at all. If you are so pathetic as to spend your time correcting others grammar, please try to have correct grammar yourself.

        Yes I do and the ability to communicate effectively and accurately is a lost hallmark in today's society filled with cretins like you who left to their own devices would run around writing, "ZOMG rofl dude Im going 2 da movies gnow, pls join me and ill meet u their". Anyone who doesn't know the difference between there and their, too and to, your and you're, has already disqualified themselves from being taken seriously in ANY discussion.

        July 20, 2012 at 9:13 am |
      • J0nx

        "At all" is done for effect to illustrate with force that she is not a beauty. The comma placement is a choice. Either way is correct. I would hope that anyone who tries to correct someone else's grammar who is correcting someone else's grammar would know that.

        “Do you think correcting your/you're shows any sort of intellect? “

        Yes, actually, it does show a “sort” of intellect; that, at least, of a cut above the comatose, drooling cretin in Ben Stein’s class in Ferris Bueller.

    I am only sorry that Mayim could not be photographed these days by Francesca Woodman. Francesca's photos of Mayim would have been stunning in their sensitivity, and so beautiful. And to all those that post "ugly" comments while hiding behind the anonymity of their keyboards, I can only say this; YOUR ugliness broadcasts itself loud and clear-far beyond any photograph of you could ever convey-for YOUR ugliness is the worst of all humankind. Your ugliness is on the inside. You will grow old becoming nothing of worth, and inevitably drown in your cesspool of mediocrity-so before you ridicule others that are young, beautiful and have already made their mark; take a deep breath as you slip beneath the dark waters of your pathetic narcissistic and mediocre abyss.

      I also don't like it as much, but I am sure some people like it more. I bet the female audience has increased. This kind of happens to many shows though. Most of the hospital shows (House, Grey's anatomy) were okay for guys early on, but became too much about relationships and became total girl shows.

      Keltari, troll, and Jack, geeks have relationships, too, just as normies do. This series shows how it happens. My spouse has Asperger's Syndrome and my son is Autistic. One day I hope my son finds someone with whom to share his life.

      TBBT gives him hope and we find it funny and heartwarming. My sister loves it. Did you think the guys would be alone forever? That isn't realistic. One or more of them was likely to find a girl and/or marry. That's what happens with young people, they have relationships. Had they remained the same the premise would have grown stale.

        An alternative is to file every email imeaidmtely, but to put a flag on those which need a reply; then to just work through your For Follow Up folder. This approach means there is no need to move emails first into the reply folder, and then move them again once you've replied to them though at the cost of having to set and later clear a flag.

That said – I was so surprised to find she had an Emmy nomination – I love "The Big Bang Theory" but find her the weakest link on it by far. Also sort of expected a bit more from someone who's already been the star of a TV show, but she sometimes sounds like she just got started in acting and is still auditioning. Ah well. Still think she looks great here, and I wish I had her brains.

    Not the most "attractive" girl I've ever seen. How did she make it onto national T.V. ??? I guess it has something to do with her ethnicity, and the "Star of David" on her chest, since she is quite unattractive - and ugly, to be precise.

    My daughter is Black and has auditioned for several shows, but with the gentile last name of Morrison, I'm wondering if I need to take extra measures to ensure she succeeds in show business.

    Should I tell the producers of media companies that she is communist, and hates gentiles - along with her support of other Leftist organizations? I don't know if that will be enough for her to get hired in show biz.........

      Now, now guys.. to be fair “Never Forget” has a point. Anytime a black person fails at something it’s always because of their race. Someone…is keeping them down. If you disagree you are a white privileged racist or a sell out trying to be white. Besides..everyone knows how easy it is to be a TV/Movie star.. all you have to do is show up in Hollywood and they give you your own show.

Only that she wasn't sick enough yet, her doctor had found onther form of treatment, or she was too sick at the time. It has now been almost a year. I just pray that she is doing well.

    You know, as someone who has Asperger's Syndrome and is very proud of it, and find "Nerd/Geek" to be a compliment, I would very much like to see an article of Carly Ray Jepsen trying to understand trying to embrace Star Trek or explain the types of research that can be found thorugh the new discovery of the Higgs-Boson? Maybe the "normal" world could embrace some "nerdy" things for once and expand their horizons as well? This isn't about a male/female thing, this is about how obsessed our culture is this aspect of life and how one sided their worldview is. It's not that we "Nerds/Geeks" have trouble with romance, it's that romance as the world sees it and how it filters into all aspects of culture isn't the same operating system we are on...and maybe they would find that there is so much more to love and the universe than this destructive culture tries to herd us into...and maybe there can be a new understanding into the human condition that so many can't understand and frustrates us "Nerds/Geeks" as well...

      It's more than just watching Star Trek, and there are so many little things that people don't understand about us...some say that it might be better for Aspies to be be with Aspies as we understand each other more. I say that they only thing that makes us disabled is society's ignorance and hope that what makes us "disabled" could make us another unique social group in modern society. How many groups have had similar issues? In addition, it's beyond just watching a TV show and all the struggles that "normal" life gives us because we often find it unpleasent and incompatible with what makes us happy. We could be normal "romantics" in some cases, but what that entails is hidden pain for us. And maybe if society understood that more, these articles could become obsolete. Also, I very much appreciate the compliment for the one that posted it, so thank you!

        I hear you. I am an about to turn 50 geek and I have been working in IT for 30 yrs. Aspies are quite prevalent in this profession and I am probably borderline myself. My 30 something step son is also coping with it. There is alot of ignorance out there about the condition, and when I was young we were just weird. My mother forced me into social settings and public speaking and I am very grateful. I have overcome some most of my tendencies, but romance is tricky. I am on my second marriage and it took me a long time to get over the first short marriage. I see the struggles that my step-son has and we have actually considered setting him up with another aspie that is a friend of the family. Today it seems easier to mock than to try and actually understand. Keep your chin up – it gets better.

        July 19, 2012 at 10:29 pm |

        BTW – We are not considering the setup because they are both aspies, but because we believe they are intellectually compatible. Both are brilliant, but both too clueless/uninterested to see the romantic potential.

        There is no medication for Asperger's Syndrome. Read a book on the subject, Opinionguru. You could learn something.

      Now, now. Not all girls can have your Mom's sloping forehead. Some actually have the cranial capacity to understand complex thoughts and basic hygiene. Try it, you might like it.

    The absolute best show, I only got hooked last year, (but now have seen them all.) I'm SO HAPPY that television's #1 character is an atheist, showing true intellect and thought, (OK and some stange behavior too.) Maybe some people will actually be moved to look into just how silly religion is, the way people became so interested in forensic science when CSI hit. Great wardrobe work for the cast. This is the best thing to happen to television since The Beverly Hillbillies, (also religion free, unless Granny started singing hymns.)

        Wow, I guess I don't watch enough TV I thought Jim Parsons won the Emmy or Golden Globe or whatever last year. What made you so mad, my television "error" or my atheist comment?

      I don't know about you, but I prefer not to get my spiritual guidance from sitcoms, or TV in general. I would think that having people who want to be more like a fictional character and have a closer association with them if they are successful (basic social psychology here) want to join the ranks, would make their motivations and devotion suspect. Jesus had quite the following while he was popular, but when he was arrested...well we all know how that turned out. I wouldn't think that any religion (atheism included) would want people to convert because "This cool guy I like on TV is one" /facepalm
