Kaley Cuoco: He Taught Me What It Was Like To Be A Leader

“Even though I only spent a year with him, that changed the course of my personal life and my career. I knew I wanted to make people laugh forever after working with John. That year really changed me in every way," she told Today.

Only two years after “8 Simple Rules” aired its final episode, Cuoco was cast on the “The Big Bang Theory."

As we reported, the actress is now filming her newest show, 'Flight Attendant' and she reflected on things she learned from Ritter that prepared her for a leading role. “The tone and feel of a stage come from your number one — however that person acts and responds is how everyone else is going to respond. Watching [John] with everybody was like a light. It was the happiest place to be. I feel that way on 'Flight Attendant,' because this is the first time I truly feel like I’m leading the pack. He taught me what it’s like to be a leader and to lead a show. He taught me a lot.”
