In The Big Bang Theory episode “The Platonic Permutation,” lots of relationships are being put to the test. On Thanksgiving Day, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) visit the aquarium, as just friends. And when Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) reluctantly volunteers at a soup kitchen, he forms a bromance with Elon Musk – Musk plays himself, the genius founder of Tesla and Space X. Raj (Kunal Nayyar) and his red-headed dermatologist girlfriend Emily Sweeney are no exception to the theme of the episode.
Emily is portrayed by Laura Spencer. She’s appeared on many TV shows including 2 Broke Girls and Sleepy Hollow but she’s best known for her roles on Bones (Jessica Warren, Brennan’s intern), Switched at Birth (Parker Robinson), and The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (Jane Bennet). The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8pm on CBS.
