Kaley Christine Cuoco (born November 30, 1985) is an American actress. She first came to attention for her role as Bridget Hennessy on the ABC sitcom 8 Simple Rules (2002–2005). She later starred as Billie Jenkins on the final season of the supernatural drama series Charmed (2005–2006). She has gained international recognition for her role as Penny on the CBS comedy series The Big Bang Theory (2007–present). Cuoco has also appeared in the films Lucky 13 (2005), The Penthouse (2010), and Hop (2011).

A model and commercial actress from the age of 6, Cuoco's first major role was in the TV movie Quicksand: No Escape (1992) with 'Donald Sutherland' and 'Tim Matheson'.

Cuoco's other television credits include guest-starring on the series Ellen (1994) (where she played "little Ellen" to the 'Ellen Degeneres' character), Northern Exposure (1990), Don't Forget Your Toothbrush (1995) and My So-Called Life (1994). In addition, she played a leading role in the miniseries Mr. Murder (1998). Cuoco has appeared in the feature films Lucky 13 (2005), Picture Perfect (1997) and Virtuosity (1995).

In the eighth season of the TV show Charmed, Cuoco appeared as Billie Jenkins, a powerful young witch with the powers of telekinesis and projection. When the sisters assume new identities during the first few episodes of the season, she keeps their secret and does some of their magical legwork for them. Billie spent most of the season trying to find her eldest sister Christy Jenkins, who had been kidnapped 15 years ago by The Triad. Billie is eventually reunited with her sister, but does not know that she has been turned evil under the influence of demons. After Christy briefly sways her to betray the Charmed Ones, Billie eventually sides with them in the series finale and is forced to kill her sister in self-defense. Executive producer 'Brad Kern' stated Kaley's character was initially brought in as a possible spin-off.

On stage, she has performed in Los Angeles-area productions of "Annie" and "Fiddler on the Roof".

Cuoco was born in Camarillo, California, the elder daughter of Layne Ann (née Wingate), a homemaker, and Gary Carmine Cuoco, a realtor. Her father is of Italian descent, and her mother has English and German ancestry. She has a sister, Briana, who is a dancer, singer and actress. She was home-schooled and earned her High School Diploma at the age of 16.

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. She is a longtime friend of 'Bob Bryan' and 'Mike Bryan', and she grew up taking tennis lessons from their mother 'Kathy Bryan'. As a child, Cuoco was once a nationally-ranked amateur tennis player.

While working on The Big Bang Theory, Cuoco dated co-star 'Johnny Galecki' for two years. They kept their relationship private until after they broke up. In October 2011, Cuoco announced her engagement to Josh Resnik, an addiction specialist, and former bassist for the band Danzig. However, in March 2012, Cuoco stated that she and Resnik were no longer engaged. Cuoco subsequently became engaged to professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting in September 2013, after three months of dating.
