The Big Bang Theory aired its last season in 2019, a show that launched the career of Jim Parsons. Let's take a look at the personal life of this actor.

Did you know that upon first reading, Jim couldn't really relate to the character of "Sheldon"? What attracted him to the role however was the structure of the character's dialogue. Parsons did so well in the audition that Big Bang Theory creator Chuck Lorre demanded another audition to see if Parsons could repeat the same kind of magic.

One critic compared the comedy style of Parsons to that of silent movie actor Buster Keaton. Lorre once said of Parsons' instincts: "You can't teach that." Parsons however says that it was his university education that played a big part in handling his lines. He has won four Emmys and a Golden Globe with his role on the show. His character was even given a prequel spinoff. That is the public life of this TV star. To hear about Jim's private life, feel free to watch the video above.
