Vegan Mayim Bialik Has to Dissect Lunch Meats on Big Bang

For a vegan, being in the same room with meat (depending on how strongly it smells) can sometimes be a hardship. But that’s nothing compared to what Mayim Bialik has to do from time to time on the hit show “The Big Bang Theory”.

The actress plays Amy Farrah Fowler, a neurobiologist who tests on monkeys and dissects human brains. While Bialik is a neuroscientist in real life, she stays as far away from animal testing and animal parts as possible. That is, unless she’s dissecting fake human brains while on set.

She told J Weekly when asked what she’s cutting up during brain dissection scenes, “I do my own dissection stunts, yes! The brains are typically made of our prop master’s combination of melted down and refrozen deli meats and cheeses. As a vegan, I’d rather dissect a human brain than what he concocts.”

That seems to be the only compromise Bialik has to make on set. Even during their pie eating contest, Fowler and her three friends all stuffed their faces with vegan pie. Still, lunch meats and cheese? It doesn’t get more processed and gross than that. Perhaps the prop master could think of something less dead for Bialik to dissect. Or, do as the lady says and get her a real human brain to work with. Easier said than done. Those are probably a bit hard to come by for a sitcom.

    This is quite interesting and certainly something disturbing for a vegan. I hope the special effects team is trying to come up with something a little more animal-friendly. They’ve probably already tried mock meats of all kinds…I wonder if anyone has better suggestions.
