We are talking about the TV show, The real theory is a little bit older, and maybe not that funny.

Two nerds living in front of an attractive young woman is the main plot of this TV show. Perhaps it is a too simple summary for one of the best series that can be seen today. Much has happened in these more than 200 episodes.

On this post, we’d like to tell you some things you might not know about the actors who play the main character in The Big Bang Theory: Sheldon, Leonard, Penny, Raj, Howard, Bernadette and Amy.

He plays with Mayim Bialim in Blosson. Although they have made many jokes about his myopia, Johnny sees perfectly, the glasses he uses do not even have crystals 😉 And he shares the ability to play the cello with his character.


Jim Parsons

Although you may find it difficult to believe, he is not a fan, and he has never even seen a chapter, from Star Trek. His character has a certain obsession with the space saga. Yes it shares with Sheldon, the birthplace, both are natural of Texas.

He is one of the highest paid actors on television and to memorize his character’s dialogues, rewrites the text on the computer, rehearses them, rewrites them … A little maniac, yes it is .. Right?
