Eliza Dushku

Buffy the Vampire’s Eliza Dushku guest-starred in season four of The Big Bang Theory in 2010.

She appeared in The Apology Insufficiency as FBI Special Agent Page.

Special Agent Angela Page, carried out a background check on Howard for his security clearance to be on the Defense Department Laser Equipped Surveillance Satellite team.

Speaking to TV Guide ahead of her appearance in the show, Dushku said: “I am a fan, but I have to be honest.

“I Wikipedia-ed each of their characters to see things that have been revealed and things that might be in their file so I would get lines that I wouldn’t have made the connection to because I haven’t watched every single episode.

“When they said little things, I could raise an eyebrow or have a light bulb go off.

“Wikipedia has such an intense rundown on all the characters and all the actors. I mean, I really felt like I could go in as an FBI agent who had all my information on them.”

Other famous faces include Bill Nye, Buzz Aldrin, Kevin Smith, Joe Manganiello, Adam West, George Takei, Katee Sackhoff, Steve Wozniak, LeVar Burton and Will Wheaton, to name a few.
