The most sarcastic, witty-mouthed character in the popular TV series 'The Big Bang Theory', Sheldon Cooper has won over the hearts of millions with his unintentional and hilarious 'bazinga' moments. He manages to make everyone fall off their chairs laughing with his one liners. A fan would know everything about the famous character, but when it comes to getting acquainted with the man who brought the legendary character to life, you might be lagging behind.
Yes, I am talking about Jims Parsons. The very dashing, handsome and immensely talented actor, who steals breaths away whenever he graces the screen.
Here are some facts about Jim Parsons you might not be aware of. Get to know him better guys; he's definitely the epitome of amazingness.
Before hitting it big through his breakthrough performance, Jim spent almost a decade paying his dues. He worked long hours in live theatres and tried his talent in ill-fated pilots.
While interviewing for the role of Sheldon, the director couldn't believe that Jim Parson was for real. He thought he was a fluke and hence, called him again for the interview. And, guess what? He nailed it!
Sheldon might be the most famous character Jim Parsons plays but he has also appeared in God on Broadway. Yup, this guy is definitely the 'GOD'.
Jim has his wax figure in Madame Tussauds, Orlando which took 250 measurements of Jim to be as close to the real star as possible. Can you imagine handling two Jims? Oh, it will be too much for the poor hearts.
Mr Parsons received his star on Hollywood walk of fame in March 2015. Keep the good work going.
The episode he favors over the others is "The Werewolf Transformation." He loves the part in which Sheldon lets Penny cut his hair and tries his hands on bongos.
Jim Parsons is a big time Houston Rockets fan. He also enjoys tennis, golf and football.
Jim Parson 'the perfection' cannot whistle.
Hands down, Jim Parsons loves Joni Mitchel and his favorite song is by the legend himself- "Down To You." You'd ask why? "It's a very old song, off her album Court And Spark, and it's like a little movie every time I listen to it. I find it very moving," says Jim.
Jim Parsons caught the acting bug at a very young age. He started his acting career in grade school where his love for acting blossomed. He went on to star in school productions and thereafter joined University of Houston and University of San Diego. He also enrolled in the post-graduate two-year course in theater acting.
He grew up in the suburbs of Houston, Texas. His southern accent is noticeable in interviews.
His rack of trophies will awake the green monster in you. Having two Critics Choice Awards, a People's Choice Award, a teen choice award, four Emmys and a Golden Globe. Quite a winner, isn't he?
While describing how he felt about Sheldon Cooper, he said that he, "felt very strongly about the structure... the way they laid out the character and the way he talked."
