“This show was different than any other show I’d worked on in the sense that it was predominantly just about what color top you were wearing. They almost didn’t care what it was (no logos or writing though) as long as the color didn’t conflict with what the cast was wearing. The wardrobe person would have a sheet and you’d come up and they’d look at you (if you were wearing a brown shirt) and say ‘…brown. No, Sheldon’s wearing brown. What else do you have?'”

The extra went on to explain that they soon understood that they should avoid red, green, or blue and should pick unique colors like orange and purple. They continued that sometimes they were told to wear certain jackets or sweaters if the episode had some changes to it just before they’d start filming.

“Hair and makeup never seemed to care about me too much. This was a show about color and wardrobe.”

The extra who had shared their experience on Reddit had shared that Kunal Nayyar, who played astrophysicist Raj Koothrappali on the show, was the most approachable and chill person on the set. They wrote,

“I messed up a cross once which resulted in him walking into a chair to avoid me while filming and he was so cool about it. I apologized profusely and he was like “Dude, hi five. No worries.” So completely cool. He could’ve been a diva and I maybe wouldn’t have ever come back but he was so friendly.”

Interestingly, Amy and Bernadette, played by Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch, were promoted to the main cast in season four and they were regarded as the regulars from the fifth season, which also meant that they weren’t paid as much as the other characters on the show. After contracts were negotiated, the top-5 agreed to lower their salaries, so Bialik and Raunch’s earnings were raised to a more respectable $500k per episode.
