Leonard Hofstadter | Big Bang Theory Wiki
Dr. Leonard Leakey Hofstadter Ph.D. is an experimental physicist at the California Institute of Technology who lives with his wife Penny (formerly with his friend Sheldon Cooper) in apartment 4 of their run-down apartment block. Originally from New Jersey, Leonard attended Princeton University and was 24 years old when he received his doctorate in experimental particle physics with the award “Dissertation of the Year”.
Leonard is an experimental physicist, and as such, he enjoys being annoyed by Sheldon. He has an IQ of 173, but despite some teething problems he shares an apartment with Sheldon and eventually becomes friends with him. This also results from the fact that Sheldon rescues him several times. Thus, he puts Leonard’s failed and explosive fuel experiment in the elevator or separates him from Joyce Kim, who turns out to be a North Korean spy. Compared to the other characters Leonard often seems to be the most down-to-earth of the group. He always strives for a firm relationship with a woman and has relationships with Dr. Leslie Winkle, Dr. Stephanie Barnett, Penny and Priya Koothrappali throughout the series. He also suffers from lactose intolerance, which has a negative effect on Leonard during the show, as Penny, Raj, Howard and Sheldon are always teasing him about it.

Leonard grew up with two also very intelligent siblings, but always stood in their shadow. His father is an anthropologist, his mother, Doctor Beverly Hofstadter, is active in the fields of psychoanalysis and neurology. Sheldon envies him very much for this family environment.

He does not seem to have a strong bond with his family, especially with his mother. His siblings are more successful than he is, so contact with them is probably uncomfortable for him. He probably still has the best relationship with his father.
“I will become a romantic ninja: You don’t see it coming, but-BANG- romance, love, hearts, kisses” ” Penny and Leonard meet in episode one and Leonard falls for her directly. Penny on the other hand only sees him as a nice neighbor and even “manipulates” him to pick up her things from her ex-boyfriend and do other things for her. Leonard invites her on a date in season 1, but lets her believe that the whole clique will come. But when they spend the evening alone and she asks him if it was a date, Leonard denies it. When it actually comes to the first date at the end of season 1 and they even kiss, Penny doesn’t want to go on another date because she fears she won’t be educated enough in the long run. So for now, they remain just friends. When Leonard has to go on a field trip for 3 months at the end of season 2, you realize for the first time that Penny has romantic feelings for him and they get together after some difficulties. Their relationship goes well at first, until Leonard tells her that he loves her but Penny doesn’t return his feelings. After that they break up and remain just friends. At the beginning of season 4 they have a one-night stand and Leonard gets his hopes up first, which Penny quickly shatters. When he then dates Raj’s sister Priya, Penny shows that she still loves him. In season 5, after some back and forth, they get back together again, but without sex for a while. Leonard also makes her a few marriage proposals, which Penny always refuses. In season 6, she confesses that she loves him for the first time and Leonard is really sure for the first time. In season 8 she proposes to him in a drunken state, because he refuses at first, but then later proposes to her. In season 9 they marry alone in Las Vegas and renew their vows in season 10 in front of their friends and family. They move into the shared apartment of Leonard and Sheldon, while Sheldon moves into Penny’s apartment with Amy. At the end of the series, it is revealed that Leonard becomes a father.
“Now listen to me, Sheldon! I’m not going to Lebanon for the return of the Super Mario Brothers DVD!” ” Sheldon is Leonard’s best friend. He lives with him in apartment 4A, across from Penny’s apartment. They met when Leonard was looking for an apartment and became aware of Sheldon’s apartment. Leonard moved in with Sheldon and signed a “roommate agreement. Among other things, this collection of rules and regulations forces Leonard to drive Sheldon to work. Even though Leonard and Sheldon didn’t get along at first because Leonard couldn’t get along with Sheldon’s “know-it-all” ways, they became friends. Partly because Sheldon saved Leonard, Howard and Raj’s lives shortly after Leonard moved in.
Sheldon is addicted to Leonard. This becomes apparent, for example, when Sheldon L
