Kaley Cuoco's rise to fame.
the flight attendant season 1 (1)

Kaley Cuoco has been the darling of our screens for many years; and her star keeps on rising. A comforting and comedic presence in our living room, we get to invite her back this month with her latest role. As the title character in The Flight Attendant, she soon finds herself in a sticky situation when her latest one-night stand ends up dead in bed.

Cuoco’s already been Golden Globe- and SAG-nominated for the role and we can’t wait to watch her in this juicy new part.

Before we watch her, let’s look at the other roles that turned her into a household name.

8 Simple Rules...for Dating My Teenage Daughter
After guest-starring in various TV shows, Cuoco finally landed a starring role with 8 Simple Rules. Starring alongside sitcom stalwarts Katey Sagal and John Ritter, who played her parents, Cuoco quickly won over audiences as the eldest child, Bridget Hennessy.

Cuoco joined a very different family in the original version of this witchy drama. She infused the show with her perky wit in the final season, while also displaying a darker side as she became both ally and antagonist to the Halliwell sisters

The Big Bang Theory
Many know her best from her twelve years as queen of the nerds in this wildly popular sitcom. Sarcastic yet sweet, ditzy yet devoted, with smarts and savvy different but necessary to her scientific friends, as Penny, she wormed her way into our hearts much as Leonard, Sheldon, Raj, and Howard wormed their way into hers.

Harley Quinn
Besides starring in The Big Bang Theory together, Cuoco and her co-star Melissa Rauch have another thing in common: they’ve both played Harley Quinn. Rauch (Bernadette in The Big Bang Theory) voiced the feisty character in the 2017 animated film, Batman and Harley Quinn. A couple of years later, Cuoco landed the voice role in the animated series, Harley Quinn, which was renewed for a third season last year.

Now get ready for a whole new character, as Cuoco brings us laughs, drama, and thrills as Cassie Bowden in The Flight Attendant.
Watch The Flight Attendant season 1, Mondays at 21:30 from 12 April on M-Net channel 101.
