'Big Bang Theory' star Kaley Cuoco shares final cast and crew flash mob dance

“The Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco revealed she almost wasn’t cast as Penny ahead of the series finale in May.

As the hit CBS comedy is preparing to come to a close, Cuoco told TV Insider she was “too young” for the role of Penny, then named Katie, when they originally cast the show.

“I didn't get [the role of Katie] the first time around. I was too young, which I love saying because I don't get to say that I'm too young anymore,” Cuoco told the outlet.

Instead, actress Amanda Walsh got the role for the original pilot, which failed for the 2006-2007 season.
