One of the most iconic nerds in pop culture history is Sheldon Cooper of The Big Bang Theory. Ever since the show premiered in 2007, Jim Parsons charmed as Sheldon, a theoretical physicist researching quantum physics and string theory. Despite his IQ of 187, he is socially awkward, making up a chunk of the show’s laughs. The show may have ended last May, but his legacy lives on in Young Sheldon, a prequel series exploring his childhood. The show is just as successful, with its parent network CBS already ordering a third and fourth season earlier this year.
In Young Sheldon, two of the standouts are Zoey Perry And Raegan Revord. Perry plays Sheldon’s mother Mary, while Revord portrays Sheldon’s twin sister Missy. We got to chat with both actresses as they revealed what it’s like on the set, their similarities to their characters, and their favorite ’80s songs.
