Now in its 11th season, The Big Bang Theory is still ranked as one of the most-watched and not to mention most-beloved sitcoms in the country.
While the show’s immense popularity could have something to do with its witty, quick, and, hilarious writing, we are guessing the series’ remarkable ensemble cast of talented and diverse actors and actresses could play a role as well.
Over the years, us devoted fans have fallen in love with the unique, humorous, cute, and incredibly intelligent characters of The Big Bang Theory. So much so in fact, that many of us wish that we were friends with them in real life! Although to most of us, the actors and actresses who play these roles will always be known for the character they portray on the sitcom, the majority of them appeared in several acting roles prior.
Although the cast of The Big Bang Theory are all now super famous and make up for some of the highest-paid actors and actresses in the industry, they were not always that way. Most of the stars of the series were unknown before reaching their Big Bang fame, and struggled in minor or inconsistent roles until finally landing their big break. While some of the cast members appeared in dozens of television series and films until earning the role of a lifetime on The Big Bang Theory, others had only one or two small acting jobs leading up to it.
Of course, a few of the stars of the show had already reached decent TV fame prior to their first appearance on the sitcom, but there is no denying that the role they are still most recognized for today, and might perhaps always be most recognized for, is the character they play on The Big Bang Theory.
Whatever previous gigs that the actors and actresses of The Big Bang Theory held prior to the show, big or small, minor or recurring, they did have some significance. Those previous roles acted as necessary stepping stones that led the future TV mega stars to the once-in-a-lifetime job that they now have today.
