Her parents raised her in Reform Judaism. She attended Walter Reed Jr. High School. By the end of the show Blossom Mayim determined to visit school at UCLA. She’d applied to both Harvard and Yale, and was accepted at these two Ivy League Universities. Mayim reasoned that she didn’t need to leave the west shore and she needed to be close to her parents. She finished her PhD in 2007 with a dissertation on the investigation of hypothalamic action in those who suffer from Prader-Willi syndrome. Mayim started playing in the eighties as a kid performer. She had a part in the 1988 horror movie called Pumpkinhead. She went to appear on the Facts of Life and on Beauty and the Beast. She was a recurring guest in three distinct episodes of McGyver. She was cast to play a young Bette Midler in the film Beaches. By 1990 Mayim really had two television situation comedies that she was tied to. She was shooting 6 episodes for the Fox station in their own situation comedy Molloy. NBC had also hired the young performer to do their pilot episode of Blossom. Blossom did much better than Molloy and Mayim stayed on the show until it was cancelled five years after. She joined the remaining cast of The Big Bang Theory during the 2009-2010 seasons. In the beginning she was just cast as a potential love interest for Sheldon. Subsequently in season 4 she returned to the show as his buddy, and by the eighth episode of that season she was a routine returning character. On August 31, 2003 Mayim wed Michael Stone. The wedding had a Victorian motif and the couple followed all of the conventional custom. She shares two sons with Stone. In November of 2012 the couple made the statement they were going to be divorced because of irreconcilable differences. Mayim takes her Jewish beliefs quite seriously and continues to be quoted to have described herself as Modern Orthodox. She’s starred in many videos made by Allison Josephs answering questions about Judaism and the Jewish beliefs. These videos are aired on YouTube.
