Screen vs. Real Life- What the Cast of Big Bang Theory Actually Looks Like

Big Bang Theory had never failed to make its audience laugh. Throughout its 12 seasons, episodes were filled with funny moments about a bunch of nerds. The series is considered a classic today, months after it aired its finale. Giving credit to its feel-good plot and cinematography, many of its fans today continue to re-watch the show.

In its 12 years of airing, the characters stayed true to their iconic personalities. But outside the screen, what is the cast like? If you’ve ever had the same question, we laid down the CBS show’s characters along with the actors who played them.



Sheldon Cooper is one of the most popular characters in the show, with his robotic personality and incredibly high IQ. Over the course of the series, the genius’ lacking social skills becomes more and more apparent. His awkward yet hilarious interactions with other characters in the show make him a crowd favorite.

The man behind Sheldon is actor-producer Jim Parsons, who has been in the industry for quite some time. He was part of other popular films like Hidden Figures and The Muppets. After saving up investment money from his projects, Parsons married his long-time partner, Todd Spiewak, in 2017.
