's Raj (Kunal Nayyar) has found himself in the middle of his longest and biggest relationship since, well, ever.
The one-time selective mute has been dating Emily (Laura Spencer) since last season, which has come as a surprise to everyone involved.
"All I knew in the beginning was that I was gonna do my one episode, which was one scene in the café with Amy [Mayim Bialik] and Raj," Spencer tells
"Having it turn into us dating was already exciting.
He's still the same Raj, but there's confidence."The best movies of 2014Frankly, the only downside of their relationship so far is the fact that she and Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) hate each other because the latter once crawled into bed with Raj."The Penny drama, that whole story line surprised me," Spencer admits."I wasn't expecting that, but it's also exciting for me to play this whole different dynamic with Kaley.I think you get to know Emily more through that too — the fact that this thing bothered her. That'll be fun to have all four girls interacting together. "A future girls' day could very well be in the cards when Spencer returns to early next year.Due to a last-minute scheduling change, her next appearance on the show was pushed back, but Emily and Raj are still going strong."They needed to focus on some other plotlines, but I will be coming back," Spencer says. Sorry for the changes.' I think anything with her and Raj is possible.
