In episode four, season five, Penny (Kaley Cuoco) introduced Raj to Emily, who was deaf, and for the first time, he was able to communicate with a woman without drinking alcohol.

However, Emily turned out only to be interested in Raj for his money.

Elsewhere in the episode, Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) freed up his mind by leaving trivial decisions to the roll of a dice.

Leclerc reprised the role of Emily in season 10 episode 14, when Raj gathered all of his old girlfriends to try to get to the bottom of why women break up with him.

In the episode, Raj was awkwardly reunited with Emily, the other Emily (Laura Spencer), Yvette the Vet (Tania Raymond), Lucy (Kate Micucci) and Claire (Alessandra Torresani)

Emily confessed she thought Raj was great but was “dominated” by his parents, calling him a “mama’s boy”.

Instead of taking Emily’s advice, he wrote down that he was too much of a “loving son”.

All four women expressed Raj had taught them what they did not want in a man, with Emily revealing she traded him for a “Bruce Wayne” type and a man with more money.

Raj thanked the women for all of their advice but considered it a waste of time since he only got hurt in the process.

Instead, he tried to make a deal with Howard (Simon Helberg) promising if he and Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) ever broke up, the two of them could get together.

Just like Emily in The Big Bang Theory and Daphne in Switched at Birth, Leclerc also has a hearing impediment.

At the age of 20, she was diagnosed as having Meniere’s disease, a degenerative inner-ear disorder.

Speaking to TV Line in 2011, Leclerc said: “This is such a departure from the character I play on Switched at Birth, who’s a shining example of sweetness, the doe-eyed 16-year-old.

“It was cool to play someone who really is unapologetic and just sort of goes for what she wants.”
