Inside Mayim Bialik And Jim Parsons' Relationship

"The Big Bang Theory" ended in May 2019. For 12 years, it captured audiences and invited viewers into the world of Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, and Howard. Speaking to Us Weekly, Mayim Bialik revealed that "The Big Bang Theory" was so feel-good because the cast had really good relationships backstage. The actor, neuroscientist, author, and film director played Amy Farrah Fowler and said, just like Sheldon and Amy, she has a special relationship with Parsons.


"Jim and I had a lot of nice moments together on set and I think one of the things that worked so well for us as actor partners, and maybe as producing partners too, is that we're not overly sentimental as humans, which I think is helpful," she told Us Weekly. "It was helpful in our acting and also in the way we kind of processed ending a decade together."

But when it came to Amy and Sheldon's wedding, as soon as Bialik read the lines she got very emotional. "It is emotional to tell someone you love them even when you're acting," the actress told People, adding that it was down to it being her "job to embody this character and to feel what she feels." That, in addition to loving Parsons as a co-worker and friend, made for a truly beautiful scene. "Although it's sometimes hard to keep a straight face saying such lovey-dovey things, there's no one I would rather say them to than Jim."


Mayim Bialik had major feels when it came to filming Amy and Sheldon's final scene together

These feelings continued into the series finale, where Amy and Sheldon win a Nobel prize together which was as emotional as — if not more emotional than — the wedding scene. On Jim Parsons' birthday, Mayim Bialik shared a montage of their outtakes from the show. She captioned the clip on her Instagram, "I worked alongside this man for almost a decade and basically imitated him as Amy. Now we work together as producers of ['Call Me Kat'], and it's all a wonderful blessing to know and love [Jim Parsons]. Happiest of birthdays to you, my friend. To celebrate, here are some bloopers from our time together on set! #TBBT #Shamy."


Bialik revealed to Us Weekly that since she's close to Parsons, filming their last scene was "very, very emotional." However, they prove that some friends are meant to work together. Entertainment Weekly reported that in January 2021, Bialik made her debut in "Call Me Kat," an adaptation of the British sitcom "Miranda."

Mayim Bialik and Jim Parsons have a good working relationship

Jim Parsons is credited as an executive producer on the show. While it seems the pair are great pals and a sitcom dream team, Mayim Bialik didn't automatically assume she'd get the job. Speaking on Us Weekly's "Watch With Us" podcast, she said, "When Jim brought it to me, I thought he was just asking my opinion because we were friends and we have a lot of similar tastes. I was like, 'That sounds great. I totally think that's a great idea!' He was like, 'No, Mayim. I'm telling you about this because I want you to play her.' So I was totally shocked."


"The Big Bang Theory" built the foundation for a strong relationship. Bialik said, per Entertainment Weekly, "Big Bang Theory was a finely oiled machine when I got there, which was fantastic because there was less pressure on me. They all already knew what they were doing. Essentially, I imitated Jim Parsons for the first couple of years, and that seemed to work. Now [on 'Call Me Kat'] we get to build from the ground up ... I've never had a job like this."

Mayim Bialik was one of the celebrity guests at Jim Parsons' wedding in 2017

Outside of their television projects, Mayim Bialik and Jim Parsons have remained very close. On May 13, 2017, Parsons married long-time boyfriend Todd Spiewak — an event that Bialik attended and had the time of her life at. "What a wedding. Not a cell phone in sight," the actress captioned a photo of the wedding on Instagram. "Everyone was so present which sounds pretentious but it was truly powerful for us all to just be there fully."


The couple, who had been together for 14 years, tied the knot at the Rainbow Room in New York City (via Cinema Blend) And as PinkNews notes, their wedding just so happened to take place a few days after "The Big Bang Theory" episode where Sheldon proposes to Amy.

"Todd and [Jim Parsons], you are so loved," Bialik continued in her Insta post. She also noted that the chuppah — a canopy used in Jewish weddings to symbolize the new Jewish home (via My Jewish Learning) — was absolutely beautiful, describing it as "hands down, prettiest [chuppah] ever. Seriously. #chupahlove #yourlove."
