Jim Parsons has gotten many awards and nominations for his representation of Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory. It is no secret that his personality off the show is very different compared to his character. One of the many things that Parsons performs magnificently is Sheldon’s facial expressions. Nonverbal language conveys more than verbal language. Therefore it is an essential part of acting. Here are some of our favorite expressions from the show.
