Annie Talked About Playing Meemaw In Young Sheldon

Annie said that she did not have much pressure to match up to her character as her character has appeared only a couple of times in Bing Bang Theory

She added that the show's makers also didn’t suggest her match up to her character, shown in Big Bang

She said the shows have a gap of thirty years, and anything can happen in that time, and they also look entirely different in that time difference. 

She said her character Meemaw is an angel. She said she was allowed to do anything with her character. 

Annie Stopped Dyeing Her Hair

Annie said that when she was conversing with Chuck Lorre, one of the creators of the show, he asked her how she wanted to play her character, and she told him she wanted her character to have grey hair. 

Chuck was taken aback to hear that and told her she had to have the same hair color as her daughter had in the show. 

Annie insisted that if she played an older woman in the show, it would not be natural to have grey hair. 

She said there was nothing wrong with grey hair. She said she recently stopped dyeing her hair as she found it stupid.

She wanted her character to be honest and authentic. They agreed with her, and she was grateful to them for that. 

She added that no matter what age women are, they should be okay with who and what they are and where they came from. She also said women should be true to themselves.
