In a new blog post, the actress behind Amy Farrah Fowler has revealed how difficult it was to film a pivotal scene in which — ‘Shamy’ spoiler alert! — Sheldon confessed he did not want to get back together with his ex, for fear of getting hurt again.
“I don’t know that it is ever easy to sum up what it is like to perform a scene like this as an actor,” Bialik writes. “What I can tell you is that the reason that Amy looks so sad when Sheldon breaks her heart is that I felt sad.”
She continues: “I have written here before about not being a trained actor, and I don’t know if the way that I perform falls under the official category of method acting. What I can tell you is that I think I am actually a very bad actor because a truly good actor would be able to act heartbroken when they weren’t. I acted heartbroken because I felt it very deeply.”
But all hope isn’t lost for the quirky couple, as they will be taking a long-awaited trip to the bedroom (!) in the CBS comedy’s Dec. 17 episode. And according to Bialik, the Sheldon/Amy saga will only get more interesting in the coming weeks.
“… When I filmed the episode that you just watched, I had no idea what was going to happen in the next episode,” she concluded, “and that not-knowing-about-the-future was part of my process as well… It goes without saying that you should all stay tuned for next week’s episode. You will not be disappointed; I wasn’t!”
