With Penny and Leonard finally getting engaged, fans of The Big Bang Theory should expect to meet Penny’s mother at their wedding during season 8.
Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, who plays Penny, isn’t sure about the casting but knows who she wants as her on-screen mom.
“I know, I’ve been waiting! I don’t know what they’re going to do, but I have always thought — and I hope this doesn’t offend her because I know she’s super young, though we know Penny’s mom got knocked up very early – that Lisa Kudrow would be so perfect,” she told TVLine.
“I’ve said that for years. I think it would be hilarious, plus I’m a huge fan of hers, so it’s a selfish wish.”
Kudrow is best known for being one of the stars of “Friends.”
As for the engagement scene, the audience reacted very strongly to it.
“Oh my God, they screamed. One of the biggest reactions was for when Sheldon and Amy (played by Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik) kissed on the train, and our engagement was huge too. We just sat there for 10 minutes while they were cheering and clapping. I had chills,” she said.
“I feel like I’m a viewer of the show too, so I was excited. I really wanted that to happen, too, for ‘Lenny,’ for Leonard and Penny.”
