Who Played The Goth Girls In The Big Bang Theory's Gothowitz Deviation?

Over the course of its 12-season run, the CBS sitcom "The Big Bang Theory" brought in a number of colorful characters to fill out the world of the show. The show's main ensemble, which initially consisted of roommates Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki), Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg), Raj Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar), and Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), alongside neighbor Penny (Kaley Cuoco), ultimately expanded to include Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) and Bernadette Rostenkowski (Melissa Rauch).

However, it was the secondary and guest characters who were often the source of laughs. The show's list of supporting actors included the likes of Wil Wheaton, who played a fictionalized version of himself, Bob Newhart, who played Arthur Jeffries, and John Ross Bowie, who played Barry Kripke.

The show's Season 3 episode "The Gothowitz Deviation" introduced two new characters who would go on to become memorable aspects of the show. Bethany and Sarah are a duo of goth girls who Howard and Raj meet at a goth club where they go, pretending to be goths themselves. Bethany and Sarah ultimately convince Howard and Raj to get tattoos, but Howard is unable to go through with it at the last moment, leading both men to reveal that the tattoos they have are fake and that they're not actually goths. This causes Bethany and Sarah to leave.

This is who played the goth girls, Sarah and Bethany, in "The Gothowitz Deviation."

Both performers are TV veterans

The character of Sarah is played by Sarah Buehler, and the character of Bethany is played by Molly Morgan. Buehler is a veteran of sitcoms, with her appearance in "The Gothowitz Deviation" being only the start. She went on to appear in "Friends with Benefits" and "2 Broke Girls," subsequently showing up in "The Middle" and "Speechless" as well. Having made her TV debut in 2003 in the CBS procedural "Cold Case," Buehler also appeared in other procedurals such as "Ghost Whisperer," "Numb3rs," and "Criminal Minds."

Buehler has also appeared in dramedies such as "Gilmore Girls," "You're the Worst," and "Jane the Virgin," with her last credited appearance coming in the 2nd episode of the science fiction comedy "The Orville," titled "Command Performance."

Morgan started her career with the 1985 version of "The Twilight Zone," before going on to appear in the soap opera "Day Of Our Lives," as well as shows such as "Full House," "Boy Meets World," and "Becker." Morgan has also appeared in shows such as "Bones," "Weeds," and "Dexter." Her appearance on "The Big Bang Theory" was preceded by a 2007 appearance in "Two and a Half Men," which was also co-created by Chuck Lorre. Morgan returned to "The Big Bang Theory" in 2015, playing a completely different character — a hostess — in the Season 8 episode "The Intimacy Acceleration."
