While filming a behind-the-scenes photo shoot for TV Guide, The Big Bang Theory stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, and Kaley Cuoco discussed the show in 2010. The photos involved a water hose, a swimming pool, and some white balloons.
“This is for the issue of returning favorites,” said Jim Parsons. This interview was three years after the show first hit the air. It’s unlikely the actors knew the show would last over a decade, but they did have some predictions about their future.
“I think it’s flattering,” said Kaley Cuoco. “We do our job and hopefully people will watch the show.”

“Leonard and Penny are broken up this season, but I think every season is just going to go back and fourth,” said Kaley Cuoco. Ironically, this is at the same time that Cuoco and Johnny Galecki were dating in real life.
“During the relationship, you saw some genuine caring in there between the two of them,” said Johnny Galecki about his character’s love life. “But, they’re without the tools to really make that happen.”
As we now know, the couple eventually found those tools. “I’ll be surprised if they don’t rekindle at some point,” added the actor.
Jim Parsons Talks About “Girlfriend” Amy
“We have Mayim Bialik playing Sheldon’s girlfriend,” said Jim Parsons in a close-up interview. Ironically, the actor used air quotes to highlight Amy’s new character, likely thinking it would turn into anything.
In other interviews, Jim Parsons made it clear that he never thought Sheldon Cooper would find love. Actually, he really thought that if that ever happened, it would have been for some sort of ratings bump.
In reality, we know now that all of these plotlines worked out for the best. In Season 11, we’re about to see the Cooper wedding and it’s also quite possible that Penny and Leonard will be talking about a pregnancy very soon.
