Question: On Bosom Buddies, what female names did the lead characters use?
Last Question: What future sitcom star played the young CC in Beaches?
Answer: Mayim Bialik
Before Mayim Bialik rose to fame with the NBC show, Blossom, she appeared in the movie Beaches as an 11 year old version of Bette Midler’s character – C.C. Bloom. Here is the scene in the movie where C.C. meets Hillary:
Mayim played the title character in Blossom, which aired from 1990-1995. After the show’s run ended, Mayim went to UCLA and earned a bachelor’s degree in 2000 in Neuroscience, Hebrew, and Jewish studies, and went on to the PhD program in Neuroscience. She received her PhD in Neuroscience in 2008.
Mayim Bialik is back on television these days. She plays the breakout character Amy Farrah Fowler on the only good current sitcom – The Big Bang Theory.
Before she was cast on the show, she received a mention in the episode, “The Bat Jar Conjecture,” when Raj suggests recruiting the real-life Bialik to their Physics Bowl team, saying “You know who’s apparently very smart, is the girl who played TV’s Blossom. She got a PhD. in Neuroscience or something.”
She joined the show at the end of Season 3, became a recurring character in Season 4. She is so good in it that she is a regular cast member now.
