Although now the first things that come to mind when we hear their names are ‘The Big Bang Theory’ and ‘How I Met Your Mother’, both Mayim Bialik and Neil Patrick Harris began their careers on camera as just children, She was about 12 years old and he was 15. From meeting here and there and being two teenage stars of the 90s, they became very close friends and he got to appear as a guest character in ‘Blossom’ while Bialik had a small role in ‘Un precocious doctor ‘, but the relationship did not last long. As Bialik has told in ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’, the fault was a play and an ovation. Or rather her.
During the program, Bialik confessed that he does not like anything, but nothing, musicals, so much so that when Harris gave him front row tickets to see him perform in ‘Rent’, his first job on stage, she didn’t even bother to get up to clap, which upset her friend so much that he withdrew the word. In the play she played Mark Cohen and at the end of the show everyone stood up to give the cast a standing ovation, everyone except her and her boyfriend. Being in the front row, Harris saw perfectly the contempt and as much as she jumped to join the rest of the audience, it was too late.
“When your friend is doing a play and everyone claps at the end and you turn to your boyfriend and say “I don’t want to get up because of this,” and then you look up and Neil Patrick Harris is looking directly at you, You know it’s a bad day, “Bialik recalled on the show,” We were teenagers, it was shortly after he finished with ‘A Precocious Doctor’ and Neil was fantastic, he’s fantastic, just musicals aren’t my thing. But that’s just the moment when you shouldn’t say it out loud because Neil read my lips and when I went to the dressing room to say hi, and we were friends then, he said, and I’m not kidding, “Why did you say you weren’t thinking of putting on foot? It was bad, it’s terrible. “After the incident, they did not speak again for years.
Know how to forgive
Things as they are, whether you like the play or not, it was quite rude of Bialik not to support his friend, especially if they have got you front row seats and his performance was as good as they say, but in the end Harris knew how to forgive her, although we do not know if they returned or not intimate: “He has said he forgives me and sent me flowers when he found out that I still feel guilty. I feel terrible, but it was not my roll. “
Currently Bialik is one of the protagonists of the comedy ‘Call Me Kat’ produced by Jim Parsons, in addition to presenting the program ‘Jeopardy!’. Harris for his part has recently participated in an episode of ‘It’s a Sin’, voices Karre in an episode of ‘Star Wars: Visions’ and Zero in ‘Eden’ and has pending release this year ‘8 Bit Christmas’ and ‘Matrix Resurrections’.
