Where the cast of The Big Bang Theory are now: From real life scientist to shock divorce

HAVE you ever wondered what the cast of The Big Bang Theory are up to now?

Fans of the American sitcom were heartbroken when the final season aired back in 2019.

The Big Bang Theory, created Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, ran a total of 279 episodes across 12 series from 2007 to 2019.

It followed the lives of Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) and his geeky pals, who live in Pasadena, California.

It was loved by many because of the hilarious on-screen dynamics between the characters, which were played out by some great actors and actresses.

Nearly three years on since the CBS show finished and the stars are still living pretty hectic lifestyles.

Let's have a look at what they've been doing…

Kaley Cuoco

Kaley, 35, played Penny Teller-Hofstadter in the show from the very first episode back in 2007.

Her alter-ego was a huge hit from the start and went on to marry Leonard in season nine.

Shortly after The Big Bang Theory ended, Kaley landed herself as the voiceover of  Harley Quinn in the American adult animated cartoon based on the DC Comics character.

She also played the voice of Pool Water in spin-off series Young Sheldon the same year.

In 2020 she began playing the main role in HBO Max thriller The Flight Attendant, and is also the executive producer.

Kaley will also appear as Maggie in upcoming 2022 film The Man From Toronto and Meet Cute.

Although her career is thriving, Kaley has had to deal with heartbreak behind closed doors.

Earlier this month it was revealed that the star filed for divorce from husband Karl Cook after three years of marriage.

Kaley and Karl tied the knot in 2018 after two years of dating.

Jim Parsons

Jim has also played himself in the special Covid-19 series Staged and The Simpsons.
