‘Big Bang Theory’ Alumna Kate Micucci Reveals Lung Cancer Diagnosis: “Never Smoked A Cigarette In My Life”


Kate Micucci, who portrayed Lucy on The Big Bang Theory, has revealed she was diagnosed with lung cancer.

“This is not a TikTok, it’s a SickTok”, the 43-year-old actress and comedian said in a video she shared on TikTok after undergoing surgery for the disease.

“I had lung cancer surgery yesterday,” Micucci said from the hospital. “It’s really weird because I’ve never smoked a cigarette in my life so uh, you know, it was a surprise. But I guess it happens and so the greatest news is they caught it early, they got it out — I’m all good.”

“It’s been a little bit of a trip,” she added, “I’ll probably be moving slow for a few weeks, but then I’ll be back at it.”

“Why am I still talking? … ‘cause I’m on drugs!” she quipped as she gave a thumbs up.

Her TikTok post also included a video of herself walking in the hospital hallway while wheeling her IV drip.

Micucci recurred as Lucy, a love interest of Kunal Nayyar’s Raj in seasons 6, 7 and 10 on the CBS sitcom. She was most recently cast in a voice role for the upcoming animated Angry Birds Mystery Island TV series. Her other credits include NBC’s Four Kings, Scrubs, Till Death, Raising Hope, Steven Universe, How I Met Your Mother and Malcolm in the Middle, among others. Film credits include The Last Hurrah, Bart Got a Room and When in Rome. Also a musician, Micucci is half of the musical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates.
