Kaley Cuoco is known as an American actress. She is most famous for starring as Penny on the top rated mainstream comedy sitcom, 'The Big Bang Theory.' Kaley Christine Cuoco was born on November 30, 1985 in Camarillo, California. She was born as the daughter to guardians Layne Ann Wingate and Gary Carmine Cuoco. She has a younger sister named Briana.
Cuoco started working in the entertainment industry at a youthful age. She took up modeling as a toddler, and her first acting gigs were in commercials. Cuoco handled her first significant role when she was a high schooler. After a short time, Cuoco graduated to TV work. She made guest spots on such popular series as Northern Exposure, Seventh Heaven and My So-Called Life. She also showed up in the film, Picture Perfect. She featured with John Ritter and Katey Sagal in the family sitcom 8 Simple Rules, which appeared on TV screens in 2002.
In 2007, Kaley got her big break. She appeared in her most famous role as Penny on The Big Bang Theory. The comedy sitcom centers around nerdy flat mates Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and their best companions Howard (Simon Helberg) and Raj (Kunal Nayyar). Cuoco plays Sheldon and Leonard's agreeable neighbor who turns into Leonard's love interest. The chemistry Cuoco and Galecki was so strong to the point that the pair became an actual couple behind the scenes for a short period of time. With its collection of unique characters and its sharp writing, the show became wildly popular with the mainstream television audience.
Cuoco married pro tennis player Ryan Sweeting on December 31, 2013. The marriage came to an end when they announced they were separating in September 2015. The single actress then started dating pro equestrian Karl Cook. They got married on June 30, 2018, at a horse stable close to San Diego, California.
Like her better half, Cuoco is a passionate horse rider. In an interview with Newsday, Kaley spoke about her current marriage, “I knew how much I had to give and how much I wanted to receive. I knew I just had to be patient. I had to go through a lot of things, but it brought me to Karl. He is my perfect match. We are the same, our views are the same, our morals are the same, he is my perfect match.”
