Kaley Cuoco 100% put her money where her mouth is today. The 34-year-old actress had confirmed her upcoming HBO Max series “The Flight Attendant” might “be one of the first ones coming back to production,” and her Tuesday Instagram stories showed it.
Kaley, who recently marked one year since hit NBC sitcom “The Big Bang Theory” ended, updated her stories today with backstage prep footage as she geared up for filming. Beloved chihuahua dog Dumptruck Dumpy featured in the video. Check it out below.
Scroll for the video. It comes after “The Flight Attendant” paused production on account of COVID-19, although July 21 had seen Kaley make headlines for saying that the series – which she both stars in and produces – would be back to business a.s.a.p.
The video showed Kaley in selfie mode and in a white t-shirt, surrounded by a glam team. The blonde had her trademark locks in curlers, also seen with a Starbucks beverage resting on a counter. “We’re back baby!” she wrote, also joking that it was Dumpy’s “first photo shoot.”
July saw Kaley appear on her popular “A Cup of Cuoco” Instagram series, where she told her 6.1 million followers:
“I just wanted to update my fans about upcoming stuff. It looks like our show, The Flight Attendant, might be one of the first ones coming back to production to finish.”
She added: “I’m being told – obviously, everything I say is not confirmed – that possibly end of August into September… with a million protocols and it’s all going to look very different to when I was last there.”
There’s been plenty from the sitcom star during the pandemic, though – including those $26 Amazon nightgowns.
Prior to the pandemic, which saw Kaley move into her new $12 million Hidden Hills estate, she was out in both Rome, Italy and NYC to film “The Flight Attendant.” The series will see Kaley play Cassandra Bowden, a woman who wakes up in a Dubai hotel room only to find a dead body next to her. Also featuring in the series is 31-year-old sister Briana Cuoco.
Kaley hasn’t been without a gig between “BBT” and her new show, though. The California native was this year unveiled as the new celebrity face of Starbucks.
No confirmation has been made over a link between Kaley’s Starbucks gig and the fact that her “A Cup of Cuoco” series revolves around coffee. The impromptu videos often showing Kaley in a nightgown or bathrobe see her enjoying her first cup of the day while sharing her random thoughts.
Kaley identifies as a “coffee connoisseur,” having even revealed that her ideal coffee temperature involves burning her esophagus. The star’s Italy travels, while filming “The Flight Attendant” also showed her having a total meltdown over European hotel room instant coffee.
