Mayim Bialik: Beauty with a brain

Do you know about the famous actress Mayim Hoya Bialik? I am a great admirer of hers. In fact the other day I was reading an article on her that gave me a lot of information on her personal life and career. Most people know her for her performance in the role of Blossom Russo. Bialik portrayed this character when she was involved in the eminent NBC TV sitcom named ‘Blossom Biography’. Did you know that this talented lady has Jewish parents? San Diego was the place where she was born. Her ancestry chain is quite interesting. Her grandparents hailed from European countries. Chaim Nachman Bialik, the eminent poet is one of her predecessors. The meaning of her name is Water according to the Hebrew language. 

Bialik faced the camera for the first time in her childhood. The year 1989 remains a landmark in her acting career. It was in this year that she won the best award for the Young actress in a movie. The film she acted in was ‘Beaches’. After a 10 year long hiatus from the world of showbiz, Bialik resurfaced in the movie, Kalamazoo in 2005. In the famous HBO comedy show series titled,’ Curb your Enthusiasm’ Bialik portrayed the role of a lesbian.

 You maybe a little amazed to know that all the glamor and fame of her profession did not go into her head. Unlike other actresses who prefer career over their family, Bialik chose to stay with her parents. This is so uncommon with others in the industry. She continued her education and earned a bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience in 2000. She even completed her Ph. D in the subject. After finishing these, she decided to don the greasepaint once again for the big screen. She married Michael stone and the couple has a child that was born in 2005.
