In the words of her character Marcia Brady, “something suddenly came up” for 14-year-old Kaley Cuoco after she completed her most recent acting assignment in the television movie “Alley Cats.” While unpacking her bags from the shoot in Canada, she received word that she had been chosen to play Maureen McCormick in “Growing Up Brady” over the 18- and 19-year-old actresses also vying for the role, and -- more importantly -- rehearsals were to begin immediately.
A model and commercial actress from the age of 6, Cuoco’s first major role was in the TV movie “Quicksand: No Escape” with Donald Sutherland and Tim Matheson. Her other television credits include guest-starring on the series “Ellen” (where she played “little Ellen” to the Ellen Degeneres character), “Northern Exposure,” “Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush” and “My So-Called Life.” In addition, she played a leading role in the miniseries “Mr. Murder.”
Cuoco has appeared in the feature films “Lucky 13,” “Picture Perfect” and “Virtuosity.”
On stage, she has performed in Los Angeles-area productions of “Annie” and “Fiddler on the Roof.”
When she’s not acting, Cuoco is an avid tennis player, who consistently ranks well in Southern California Tennis Association standings as a member of a regional amateur division team. In addition, she enjoys spending time with friends, going to the mall and hip-hop dancing.
Cuoco is home-schooled and lives in Ventura County, California with her family.
