Name: Amy Farrah Fowler, Ph.D.
Raj and Howard met Amy through an online dating site after secretly setting up an account using Sheldon’s name and information. The site matches her to Sheldon, and the two share many similar traits. Once she and Sheldon meet, she becomes, as Sheldon puts it, a girl who is his friend, but not his “girlfriend”. They briefly ended their friendship when they got into an argument over whose field of study was superior.The two initially communicate only by text message and occasionally via webcam, though she gradually began hanging out with the gang in person through the fourth season. After they announce their intention to have a child, Penny suggests and then ends up chaperoning their first date together since Sheldon doesn’t drive. Besides being friends with Sheldon, Amy also injects herself into Penny’s life and attempts to bond with Penny and Bernadette (even considering Penny to be her best friend, or “bestie”), but frequently makes them uncomfortable by misinterpreting “girl talk” to mean openly discussing topics such as female anatomy and feminine hygiene. However, Amy has a very girly side, and falls in love with a tiara (an apology present from Sheldon). She’s shown to have something of an arrogant side, where she’s convinced that Leonard has fallen for her after he accompanies her to a friend’s wedding and gives her a kiss, even though he has no such feelings.
Amy reveals that she had very few friends from pre-school through grad-school. She is technically engaged to Saudi Arabian Prince Faisal who resides in Riyadh, who is the source of much of her lab’s funding. Amy can also play the harp.
