The Resume

    (June 23, 1980- )
    Born in Marlboro Township, New Jersey
    Portrayed Bernadette Rostenkowski Wolowitz on 'The Big Bang Theory' (recurring in third season; became full regular in fourth season)
    Recurring roles included Tina on 'Kath & Kim' (U.S.) and Summer on 'True Blood'
    Film credits include ‘I Love You, Man’
    One-woman shows include ‘The Miss Education of Jenna Bush

Why she might be annoying:

    ‘Since my entire family is short, it’s impossible to forget the little people.’ (At 4’11, that means vertically challenged.)
    Her family had a tendency to be loud and raucous.
    She admits to being no geek (‘I have no idea what I’m doing with anything electronic’).
    In her waitressing days, she considered herself the ‘Rhea Perlman of the bar’ — and a little surly when serving chicken wings.
    She actually feared she would become just like Snooki — ‘a bottle of hair dye.’
    Grilled by Conan O’Brien, she confessed to getting too cold at a Big Bang taping and rubbed her hands under the covers to stay warm; production staff thought she was ‘pleasuring’ herself.

Why she might not be annoying:

    Her middle name? Ivy!
    Not a particularly good athlete, she used the family basement to put on lovely little after-school shows with her brother.
    She based her 'Big Bang' character’s squeaky voice on her mother (probably came in handy for her Rocky Horror Picture Show stage performance, too).
    Citing the ability to involve her entire family in a video project, she was an early contributor to the Funny Or Die site.
    She posed as a dominatrix for a Maxim shoot (where she was dubbed a ‘sitcom siren’).
