A giant panel of writers descended once again to San Diego Comic Con 2015. Not just any writers, it was the writers and creators of THE BIG BANG THEORY who were joined by surprise moderator Kunal Nayyar and panelist Mayim Bayalik.
Check out below our top 10 Moments From The Big Bang Theory Writer’s Panel!
- Kunal Nayyar (Raj Koothrappali) was the surprise moderator!
The HUGE panel was made up of writers, producers, and Big Bang Theory science consultants. Most of the writers have Master’s Degrees in Engineering and science related fields and their attention to detail for accurate science in the show is impeccable.
- Mayim Bialik (Amy Farrah Fowler ) made a surprise appearance and read naughty fan fiction with Kunal:
‘Amy & Raj” read through a fan fiction script where Kunal stated “I’m about to introduce you to Fifty Shades of Brown…” and Mayim called him a “Sexy beast from the third world.”
- “Amy, what it like to kiss Sheldon Cooper?”
They have to kiss ‘in character’ and their intimate scenes are very well crafted. Mayim explained that her and Jim talk a lot about their scenes and their characters off screen which “adds to the complexity of their characters.”
- One of the funniest/most embarrassing moments on the set:
Simon Helberg (Howard Wolowitz) had to mimic Stephen Hawking’s voice in front of him on set! Mortified that he would be offended, Steven actually was quite amused!
- Kevin Smith (Silent Bob) brought Jay to the set:
Mayim was so ecstatic when she found out that guest star Kevin Smith was bringing Jay (Jay and Silent Bob) to the set, that she tweeted about it. Warner Brothers reprimanded Mayim and had her delete the tweet for divulging this information.
- Maria Ferrari (Writer) recounts meeting Nathan Fillion:
She was feeling buzzed at a Golden Globes party, approached him, and was a complete fangirl over Firefly. Embarrassed by her previous encounter, he came to film on set and she re-introduced herself, “It’s so nice to meet you for the FIRST time!” hoping he hadn’t remembered her!
- “Why does Sheldon hate Engineers?”
Saladin Patterson (Engineer/Writer) replied that “Sheldon doesn’t like what he can’t understand.” The tension between scientists, engineers, and geologists is an apparent theme throughout the show, and real between the writers as well.
- Kunal used to drive Carol Ann Susi (Debbie Wolowitz) around his sports car:
Carol never drove in LA and always took the bus. Kunal would often offer her rides in his fancy car, and she would encourage him to rev the engine!
- Panelist were taking their clothes off!
Eric Kaplan (Writer) took his shirt off, exposing his bare skin for the 4,200 attendees to see, to demonstrate a writers technique of ‘clearing your mind’ and getting in the right mindset to write.
- Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty…
The entire audience and panel sang the Soft Kitty song in a giant sing-along!
Season 9 of The Big Bang Theory premieres Monday, September 21st 2015.
