The Big Bang Theory "Sheldon" was played by American actor Jim Parsons. While fans were sad to say goodbye to "Sheldon" in 2019 when the show ended, you can still find Jim Parsons working on his next big project. Here is everything you need to know about The Big Bang Theory "Sheldon"!  

The Big Bang Theory "Sheldon" was known for his quirky personality. A senior theoretical physicist at The California Institute of Technology, "Sheldon Cooper" may be a genius, but he is lacking in the social skills department. 

Over the show's 12 seasons, "Sheldon" became the lead of the series, known for his irony and sarcasm, even if he couldn't grasp the concept of humor. While at times we wanted to shake "Sheldon" for his lack of empathy towards the other characters, The Big Bang Theory would not have been the same without him!
