Kaley Christine Cuoco is the current reigning queen of American television due to her best role as Penny in CBS’ situational comedy ‘The Big Bang Theory’ (2007-present). She began her career in 1992 as Connie Reinhardt in the thriller film ‘Quicksand: No Escape’. Two years later, she made her television debut in the ABC’s teen drama ‘My So-called Life’.
After appearing in a series of small roles in both films and television, Cuoco played Bridget Hennessy in ‘8 Simple Rules’ (2002-05). The success of the series secured her position in the industry, and while the show ended abruptly after the untimely death of John Ritter (who played Kaley’s father), it gave Cuoco enough momentum to be cast as the female protagonist in Chuck Lorre’s next project, namely ‘The Big Bang Theory’. Besides these, her list of film and television appearances also include ‘Virtuosity’ (1995), ‘Growing Up Brady’ (2000), ‘Charmed’ (2005-06), ‘The Last Ride’ (2011), ‘The Wedding Ringer’ (2015), and ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip’ (2015).
Kaley Cuoco has had her share of success and failures. ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip’ is the most successful film of her career, as it was a top-grossing movie at the box-office, despite being poorly received by the critics. If ‘8 Simple Rules’ (2002-05), ‘Hop’ (2011), and ‘Burning Bodhi’ (2015) can be considered as some of her best works, then ‘Cougar Club’ (2007) and‘ The Penthouse’ (2010) are two of the worst Kaley Cuoco movies.
