Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik only auditioned for the role to get health insurance

You may know her from her Emmy nominated character Amy Fowler on "The Big Bang Theory." Mayim Bialik says the only reason she auditioned for "The Big Bang Theory" was because her health insurance was running out. We were first introduced to Mayim Bialik as a child star in the popular 90s sitcom "Blossom." In between gigs she went and got a Ph.D. in neuroscience. Dennis and Bailik talk a little chromosomes before getting into her brand new show on FOX. Bialik stars in a BBC adaptation "Call Me Kat." She talks about how coronavirus has changed how she and Jim Parson's thought they would be working together and the aspects they pulled from the original British comedy. Bialik tells Dennis not only the differences between working as a child actor and working as an adult but also how social media and paparazzi have in general changed how actors work.
