Following on from The Big Bang Theory, Cuoco continued on her story of success. One of her biggest projects is Harley Quinn, an animated series where she voices the titular character.
The thirty-six-year-old even founded her own production company back in 2017. Titled Yes, Norman Productions, the studio collaborated with Warner Bros. to produce the critically acclaimed The Flight Attendant.
One of the most exciting projects on the horizon for the actress is a project on Hollywood legend Doris Day. Variety reports Cuoco herself is set to play the star, with her production company again working with Warner Bros. on the project.
In terms of her personal life, Cuoco is no stranger to making the headlines when it comes to her dating history.

The actress then began dating tennis star Ryan Sweeting in 2013, and they became engaged after 3 months of dating. The pair tied the knot in a winter wedding in California, but announced their divorce less than 2 years later.
