Jim Parsons talks ‘The Normal Heart’ and Sheldon on ‘The Big Bang Theory’

The Love Spell PotentialWhile promoting The Normal Heart, star Jim Parsons discussed the value of the film and its message while addressing questions regarding his award-winning role on The Big Bang Theory.

“So many people could benefit from knowing this story,” Parsons says of the film. “I think anybody who has a heart and is a human. A story is a story and it plays differently to everyone’s ear but there is no doubt in my mind or my heart that this is a force of good.”

Parsons can’t say enough positive things about the film and what it has to offer, “…I’m so happy about certain people who are going to see this. For someone like myself, who felt fairly well-adjusted in life, this was a real education and I’m not referring to the specifics of dealing with the early days of the Aids crisis. I’m talking about the whole fight to be heard and to be seen.”

” I had other friends who were working so I knew enough to know I’d probably sign a five-year contract – which was hard to wrap my head around at the time – and earning an amount of money I’d never seen before…I don’t remember how much but it didn’t matter – anything would have been impressive to me. So I sort of knew there was this element that could freak you out to a certain degree.”

Parsons puts the praise on others for his award-winning character. “The show’s creators and writers created a character that’s unique on television and I’m taking no credit for that. I don’t even think about that or I wouldn’t be able to play it properly. Sheldon has something broken about him, which I think endears him to a lot of people.”
