Mayim Bialik from The Big Bang Theory
It's no stretch for this star to play a genius on TV. Mayim Bialik, or Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory, brings some real-world expertise to her role as a super-smart neuroscientist. She has a Ph.D. in neuroscience from UCLA. Now that’s empirical evidence for art imitating life!
Bialik also created and runs Grok Nation, which "presents issues in an accessible, relatable and unapologetically nerdy way."
