Mayim Bialik, famed for The Big Bang Theory, explains the reason she feels like an ‘outsider’ as she admits being in the public eye is definitely abnormal.
Bialik, who also holds a doctorate in neurology, started acting at an early age, and her breakthrough part as the titular character in Blossom (1990-95) pushed her into the limelight, but she has admitted that feeling different isn’t just due to stardom.

The actress explained to Yahoo Entertainment,
I don’t know if I felt normal growing up. But I don’t think that had to do with the fact that I was a child actor — I think that I came from a really unusual family. So nothing felt normal for me. I always felt different.
She could well have felt odd prior to becoming a major star, but she wouldn’t dispute that being famous was a little weird and added to her feeling like an outcast.
Being on television definitely…made me feel like more of an outsider. Being in the public eye is definitely abnormal. But there was a lot about my life that was still normal: I was still treated like a normal kid who had to go to school, and do my chores and be picked on by my brother.
Meanwhile, the Amy Farrah Fowler actress just announced that Fox has extended her new show Call Me Kat for season two. Bialik announced the news on her Instagram page, writing, “Pretty darn good way to start off the week!!”
The Big Bang Theory series finale aired on CBS on 16th May 2019.
