“The Big Bang Theory” is one of the biggest sitcoms in recent history, which featured memorable characters depicted by talented actors.
The show followed the lives of four brainy friends: Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg), Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar), and Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki), as they figure out life. The show also starred Kaley Cuoco in the role of Penny, an aspiring actress, Mayim Bialik as Amy Fowler, and Melissa Rauch Dr. Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz.
Since the show ended in 2019, each major cast member has moved on to more exciting projects.
Here’s a look at what they’ve been up to and their current net worths.
Melissa Rauch, Mayim Bialik
Melissa Rauch played the role of Dr. Bernadette Maryann Rostenkowski-Wolowitz on “The Big Bang Theory.” Alongside acting on TBBT, she has appeared as a voice actress in animations like “Robot Chicken” and “Star vs. the Forces of Evil.”
Rauch also voiced the role of Marie Antionette in “Animaniacs” and is set to star in the lead role for the upcoming sitcom “Night Court,” where she also serves as an executive producer.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the “The Laundromat” actress is worth a whopping $20million.
Mayim Bialik played the role of Amy Farrah Fowler on the popular sitcom. The actress had a recurring role at first before being made a main cast member.
Since the show ended, Bialik has gone on to become the new host of the popular game show “Jeopardy.” Although her new job has been quite riddled with criticisms from its fanbase, the talented actress still manages to deliver a great show.
According to The Sun, Bialik is worth $25million. Prior to her “The Big Bang Theory” fame, she played the lead role in the beloved ’90s NBC sitcom “Blossom” for four years. She recently made her directorial debut in 2020 for the movie “As Sick As They Made Us.”
Simon Helberg And Kunal Nayyar
Simon Helberg has been acting for the past two decades, starring in “A Cinderella Story,” “Annette,” and several other movies. He also appeared in “MADTV,” a show which proved his comedic chops, making him perfect for his role in “The Big Bang Theory.”
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Helberg is worth over $45 million. The actor has kept himself busy post “The Big Bang Theory” but hasn’t really been in anything major yet.
Like Helberg, Kunal Nayyar is also worth $45million. Other roles he has done apart from TBBT include, voice acting in the cartoon show “Sanjay and Craig.”
In 2020, he delved into more movie projects like “Think Like A Dog” and “Trolls World Tour.” Nayyar also very recently took on the lead role in the Apple+ tv series “Suspicion.”
It’s only intriguing to see what he’ll do next. With his warm personality and admirable ethics, Nayyar still has a lot of great stuff in store for his fans.
Kaley Cuoco And Johnny Galeki
Prior to being one of the most familiar faces from the show, Kaley Cuoco was on the cast of “Brandy And Mr. Whiskers” and “Alley Cats Strike” from the Disney network. She also appeared in movies like “Lucky 13” and “The Hollow” before her “Big Bang Theory” fame.
Cuoco is currently worth $100million, and she’s only getting started. Along with her other cast members, Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki, Cuoco earned a whooping $1million per episode on the eighth to the tenth season of “The Big Bang Theory.”
The recently divorced actress is currently starring in the hit HBO show, “The Flight Attendant,” where she also serves as an executive producer.
Johnny Galecki has been appearing in movies and TV shows since he was a child. His first acting gig was in 1987, and he also featured in the 1989 film “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” He got his big breakthrough role in the 1988 sitcom “Rosanne” and, since then, has become a pretty big name amongst Hollywood TV stars.
Galecki is reportedly worth $100million as per Celebrity Net Worth.
Besides a cameo role in “The Conners,” the actor hasn’t been on any other major projects, but Deadline reports that Galecki is currently working on developing a new TV show that is completely different from his hit series, “The Big Bang Theory.” The actor is reportedly working on a medical drama for ABC, based on the novel “Catching Babies” by author J.D. Kleinke. It would certainly be fun to see what Galecki has in store for his fans with this new show.
Jim Parsons is the star of “The Big Band Theory,” so it’s no surprise that he is worth over $160million. His character was the most popular of the cast and gave Parsons’ career the much-needed boost to turn him into an A-list Hollywood actor.
Before his starring role in TBBT, Parsons did a lot of stage plays and even helped found Infernal Bridegroom Productions, a theater company as per thethings.
After the super successful sitcom ended, the “The Normal Heart” actor voiced a version of himself on the long-running animated comedy show “The Simpsons” and starred in “Hollywood,” a Ryan Murphy-produced Netflix mini-series. Parsons also appeared in “The Boys In The Band,” a 2020 film based on the critically acclaimed play by the late Mart Crowley.
Despite Parsons’ exit from “The Big Bang Theory,” he still serves as an executive producer and narrator on the hit show’s spinoff “Young Sheldon,” which recently got renewed by CBS for another three seasons.
