In the Young Sheldon episode “A Rival Prodigy and Sir Isaac Neutron,” there’s a new 10-year-old genius in town. Her name is Paige (guest star Mckenna Grace) and when Dr. John Sturgis (Wallace Shawn) bonds with her, Sheldon (Iain Armitage) gets jealous. While Meemaw (Annie Potts) tries to intervene, Sheldon’s mother Mary (Zoe Perry), who’s excited to meet parents she can relate to, invites Paige’s family over for a play date.
Paige’s mother Linda is portrayed by Andrea Anders. She’s known for her roles on Modern Family (Phil and Claire’s neighbor Amber), About a Boy (Joanne), Necessary Roughness (Laura Radcliffe), Better Off Ted (Linda Zwordling), The Class (Nicole Allen), the Friends spin-off Joey (Alex Garrett), and Oz (Donna Degenhart), among others. Anders is also recognized for her roles in the movies Sex Drive (Brandy) and The Stepford Wives (Heather). Anders will appear next on the big screen in the 2019 film Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase. Young Sheldon airs Thursdays at 8:30 pm on CBS, right after The Big Bang Theory, and right before Mom.
