You will never guess who captured a young actor's heart.
As viewers, we can only imagine how scary it must be to go into a new project with a completely new cast that you have to figure out how to communicate with and build chemistry with. Acting is fun, but it's also a very hard job. And just like your first day at any other job, meeting your future co-stars can be nerve-wracking.
Of course, none of the cast of The Big Bang Theory could have imagined how long the sitcom would last and how much closer they would become over the years. Working with someone every day for 12 years is no joke, and there's no way to come out of that experience without making new, true friends.
Although it's sometimes hard to make a good first impression or guess how your relationships would go from a first impression, Jim Parsons, who portrayed Sheldon Cooper on the show, clearly remembers his thoughts about one of his co-stars. He admitted it on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert:
"Kunal, I though, was the most handsome man. I have a thing for brown hair and brown eyes, so he really checked off my boxes. And then later on I though he was pretty talented too, but it took a while," the actor said.
The co-star in question is, of course, Kunal Nayyar, who played Rajesh Koothrappali on the show. As it turns out, no matter how many years have passed, the actor still gets pretty flustered by such heartfelt compliments, to the point of blushing during the interview.
No matter how good or bad the cast's first impressions of each other were, it's really great to see them all working around it and finding a way to bond. After all, The Big Bang Theory is one of the shows that has managed to reach the 12-year mark and the finale without any members leaving, which is an accomplishment in itself.
If you are feeling nostalgic and want to re-watch The Big Bang Theory from the very first episode, you can stream the show on MAX or Netflix.
