Kaley Cuoco’s Education Background

Kaley Cuoco is an American actress and singer. She is possibly best known for her role as Penny on the sitcom, The Big Bang Theory. Cuoco will be co-starring in the new animated movie Hop alongside Russell Brand and James Marsden. EDUinReview will now take a look at her education background.

Cuoco was born on November 30, 1985 in Camarillo, California to Gary Cuoco and Layne Ann Wingate. She began acting and modeling when she was six-years old and had her first major role in 1992 in the television movie, Quicksand: No Escape. She also guest-starred on the television series Ellen in 1994. She then went on to play Bridget Hennessy in 8 Simple Rules, a popular ABC sitcom, in 2002. Cuoco was homeschooled and earned her high school diploma when she was 16.

Cuoco has appeared in several feature films, including Lucky 13, Picture Perfect, and Virtuosity. She has several films in the works right now, including Hop, The Last Ride, and The Bedroom Window. In addition to acting for the camera, she has also performed in several live-stage productions, such as Annie and Fiddler on the Roof.

Cuoco is not only an actress and singer; she is also an avid tennis player and equestrian: “Horseback riding is my passion. Other than work. People can’t imagine me getting dirty, but that’s what I love about it.” In September 2010, her passion caused her to suffer a broken leg after falling off a  horse. Although she had to miss two episodes of the Big Bang Theory, it did not deter her acting career with the show and she still appears on it as a main star.
