Kaley Cuoco Had A Special Way Of Capturing Memories On The Set Of The Big Bang Theory

Not only was "The Big Bang Theory," immensely popular while it was on air — the CBS sitcom had a 12-season run after all — but it has remained a beloved series for fans since it ended in 2019. The series follows the lives of a group of friends, many of whom are scientists. There's Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) and Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki), two theoretical physicists and roommates who live next door to aspiring actress Penny (Kaley Cuoco), as well as aerospace engineer Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) and astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar). Later on, the series adds Bernadette (Melissa Rauch), a microbiologist and Howard's eventual wife, and Amy (Mayim Bialik), a neurobiologist and Sheldon's love interest, to the friend group.

Not only is "The Big Bang Theory" very much a friend-centric sitcom, but the cast has also been outspoken about being close friends off set as well. With this in mind, it makes sense that the cast members would want to find a way to capture all of the memories from the 12 years they spent working together. Here's how Cuoco opted to hold on to memories from her time on set.

Cuoco took polaroids to capture on set memories

In 2019, Kaley Cuoco appeared as a guest on "The Kelly Clarkson Show," during which she discussed what it was like to wrap up her long-term run on "The Big Bang Theory." During the discussion, Cuoco revealed that she took Polaroids throughout the entirety of the show's run.

Cuoco said, "If anyone follows me on Instagram, they know that I take a lot of Polaroids. And so, for 12 years on 'Big Bang,' I must've taken about 2,000 Polaroids of the cast." The actress then explained that after they wrapped on the show, she and her assistant put the Polaroids on a hard drive and sent it to the cast and crew. She continued, "They just got it a few weeks ago, so they started texting me, like, 'I got the pictures!'"

After Clarkson agreed that she, too, loved Polaroids and wanted to do something similar for her own show, Cuoco encouraged her to do so, before joking, "You'll annoy the hell out of people taking pictures, but they will be so grateful at the end of the day!"
