The Big Bang Theory Casting News: Sara Gilbert

by at . Comments

We have some very sad news for The Big Bang Theory fans who loved Sara Gilbert as much as we did.  According to Ausiello Files, Sara has been demoted from a series regular to just the occasional guest star.

Ausiello's insider said that they weren't able to generate enough stories for Gilbert's character, Leslie Winkle, who was once romantically involved with Leonard (Johnny Galecki), but no longer is.  Fun fact for you non-Gilbert fans is that Gilbert and Galecki played lovers on the show Rosanne, which Big Bang's Chuck Lorre was also involved in.

Leslie and Leonard's Date

Though Big Bang spokespeople did not comment, sources close to the show did say that "Sara has a long-standing relationship with Chuck Lorre that dates back to their Roseanne days.  He adores her, and he will continue to use her on the show."

How soon can we expect to see her?  Gilbert will be in the next episode, "The Financial Permeability" set to air in February.
