Kaley Cuoco has answered an awkward interview question like a pro.

The Flight Attendant star, 35, made an appearance on BBC’s The One Show to promote the Golden Globe-nominated series. During the interview, she answered an uncomfortable question about finding success after the successful sitcom, The Big Bang Theory.

“The show was so big. Were there concerns about your next step because, we’ve seen it with a few sitcoms, it doesn’t always go too well for the cast?” co-host Jermaine Jenas asked Cuoco.

The star brushed off the question, answering, “Oh for sure.” But it was co-host Alex Jones that made it awkward.

“Who are you talking about, Jermaine?” she asked, frowning. While Jenas quickly replied, “I was just like throwing it out there.”

“No, I understand. Look, the show is so popular,” Cuoco explained. “When I started freaking out about the comparisons there would be or what my next project would be, I realised you can’t compare anything to Big Bang.

“As its own entity, I will never have that again. I won’t have that cast again, the money, the schedule, 12 years… I mean, all of it was insane. If I can accept that nothing will compare to that — I can’t control what other people are gonna say about me – I knew my next project was gonna be for me and I was gonna leave that in its own place, if that makes sense.”

Last week, Cuoco looked back on her 12 seasons on The Big Bang Theory and recalled the moment her co-star, Jim Parsons, told her the show was coming to an end.

“It was a great job,” Cuoco told Variety. “I thought, ‘Maybe I’m, like, a sitcom girl forever.'”

“Jim said, ‘I don’t think I can continue on,'” she added. “And I was so shocked that I was literally like, ‘Continue on with what?’ Like, I didn’t even know what he was talking about. I looked at Chuck: ‘Wow. I thought we were — I’m so blown away right now.'”
