The actor Jim Parsons became known as the nerd Dr. Dr. Sheldon Lee Cooper in the sitcom “The Big Bang Theory”.
The gangly James Joseph Parsons, called Jim, spent his childhood in Houston, Texas. Already in the first class he got acting lessons. After school he enrolled in acting at the “University of Houston”, but finished his studies in San Diego. In his years of study he could already cheat his profile with several theater performances.
In New York Jim Parsons wanted to get his acting career going. He got his first television roles in 2003 in the series “Ed – The Bowling Lawyer” as well as in “For all cases Amy” (2004 and 2005). But in 2007 Jim Parsons got the role he should really be known for: He played the smart Dr. Dr. Sheldon Lee Cooper in the CBS series “The Big Bang Theory”. Together with his colleague Johnny Galecki, he even appeared in this role as an animated character in the TV series “Family Guy” in 2009.
This role earned Jim Parsons an “Emmy” nomination in 2009 for best leading actor in a comedy series. In the following two years he won the coveted award twice more. In 2011 he also received the “Golden Globe Award”. Also in 2013 he takes home an “Emmy” as best leading actor in a comedy series for his funny sayings as ‘Sheldon Cooper’.
In 2011 Jim Parsons returned to the theatre: on Broadway in New York he appeared in the plays “The Normal Heart” and “My Friend Harvey”.
After living with him in Los Angeles for three years, Jim Parsons proposed to his partner Todd Spiewak in 2010. Todd cancelled the planned Christmas wedding, however, when he learned that Jim Parsons does not want children (yet). But their relationship could not destroy that.
