Laura Spencer (Big Bang Theory) Interview | AfterBuzz TV’s Spotlight On

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s Spotlight On edition, is a long form interview series featuring Actors and TV personalities discussing their roles and shows as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode hosts Yael Tygiel interviews Laura Spencer.

Laura Spencer is currently giving fans a double take week after week as Emily, Raj’s new girlfriend on the hit CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory, and as one of the Squinterns Jessica Warren on Fox’s hit show Bones. Earlier in the year you could also catch her as one of Ichabod Crane’s favorite re-enactors on Fox’s sophomore series Sleepy Hollow.

Spencer, who hails from Oklahoma, got her start acting at the University of Oklahoma where she studied and gained a BFA degree in Theatre and Drama.

Having grown up performing, it was a natural transition into acting after years of dancing, playing the flute and performing elaborate puppet shows for her family. Not one to waste anytime in getting her career started, Spencer’s first role was an indie movie that shot in Oklahoma, Barking Water that went on to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009. Spencer continued to study and build up her resume acting locally before taking the leap and moving to Los Angeles.

She moved to Los Angeles in January 2010 and started booking auditions and commercials. Spencer worked for a Casting Director and quickly booked a TV show “Mad Love” with Jason Biggs.

Spencer, known for her beautiful and fiery red hair received acclaim for her appearing in the Creative Arts Emmy award and Streamy award winning Web series, “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries,” and the well known series “Jan” and “Vanessa and Jan,” which debuted on the WIGS YouTube channel created by Jon Avnet and Rodrigo Garcia. She reprised her role as Vanessa in a third WIGS series, “Blue”, starring Julia Stiles and Eric Stoltz. From there she went on to guest star on such high profile shows as “Switched at Birth,” “Criminal Minds,” and “2 Broke Girls”among others.

Fun fact, Spencer last year starred in two popular national commercials at the same time, one for Sprint Network alongside a Zombie and the other globally more recognizable brand Skittles in which she is seen eating the skittle teeth of a fellow classmate.

Spencer is based in Los Angeles.
