It’s the end of an era for fans of "The Big Bang Theory," as the show gets ready to say goodbye.
Kaley Cuoco stopped by Universal Studios Hollywood, where she chatted with “Extra’s” Renee Bargh about the series finale and her one-year anniversary to Karl Cooke.
Kaley is still glowing after saying “I do” in a fairy-tale wedding last June. “It was pretty awesome," she gushed. “When I first met Karl, I went to his ranch… and I thought, ‘Oh, my God, if I marry this guy, I’m getting married in this barn.’ It was as if I had this picture in my mind and it literally came off the page.” She went on, “All my horses were on one side, all his were on the other. My dream was walking down the aisle with them all looking at me — it was exactly what I wanted.” Cuoco laughed, saying, “Karl was there, too, but the horses were great.”
She also laughed off the annoying question everyone gets after they get married: "When are you having babies?" because that's not the one she gets.
“Ours is, 'When are you adopting your next animal?' They've learned what to ask us,” the actress explained.
Fans want to know how "The Big Bang Theory" will end after 12 seasons. Kaley just posted an Instagram photo of herself weeping after the last table read, and told Renee what happened when she found out the show was coming to an end. "I cried for about a week straight," she said. "I was in a little bit of a depression. It just felt weird, someone telling you your destiny, like, 'This is going to change in a year.' It took me a minute, kind of like a weird, emotional death now. This year has kind of been great 'cause I've been really taking advantage of the moments at work… taking a thousand photos.” Kaley revealed she has over 2,000 Polaroids that she hopes "to turn into a book one day. I have them from the pilot.”
Renee joked that the show has to go out with a “bang," to which Kaley replied, “Exactly… it pains me to say it, but you have got to say it.”
So what are her plans for when the show ends? “Karl and I are going to travel a little bit. We spend a lot of time in Kentucky. We love Kentucky — horses, bourbon."
Next up? "A book I optioned called ‘The Flight Attendant’ that I am executive-producing and starring in… it will be a miniseries.”
“It’s the first time I’ve grabbed anything on my own and started it and done it from the beginning, so if it sucks I am moving out of the country and you will never hear from me again… and if it’s great, I’m going to sit here with you and we can talk about it.”
“The Big Bang Theory” series finale airs May 16 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
