'Big Bang Theory' Star Mayim Bialik Put on Vocal Rest for One Month

| TV and Movies

The Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik got some unfortunate medical news this week, and she won't be able to talk for an entire month.

Bialik, who plays Amy Farrah Fowler on the show, took to Instagram on Wednesday and revealed she'll be on vocal rest after visiting her ear, nose and throat doctor.

"Me waiting for a check up from my ENT. Can't speak for a month. Yup. Check out today's Instagram story for a vlog teaser for tomorrow," she wrote.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the vocal rest shouldn't interfere with the filming The Big Bang Theory's next season. The show, which was recently renewed for two more seasons, will begin filming in August. Unless her illness worsens though, she'll be all rested up for production.

In the meantime, Bialik will still be interacting with fans through her YouTube channel. Despite the condition, she assured fans her regular updates won't be stopped.

Bialik is expected to be a major part of the next Big Bang season, especially after the much-hyped season finale cliffhanger that found Sheldon (Jim Parsons) rushing to Amy's doorstep and proposing.

However, we don't know her answer as the show cuts off mid-proposal. What do you think happened?
