The other main cast members of the series are as follows: 

Iain Armitage as Sheldon Cooper: a child prodigy well-versed in various branches of mathematics and science. He states that he decided to pursue physics around the same time as the show began. While academically gifted, Sheldon sometimes lacks a full understanding of social cues and behaviors, in addition to having a sense of superiority over everyone around him due to his intelligence. 

Jim Parsons is the voice of adult Sheldon Cooper: who provides the perspective of an adult recalling his childhood. 

Zoe Perry as Mary Tucker Cooper: mother of Sheldon, Missy, and Georgie. She is very protective and patient with Sheldon but also struggles to understand him at times. She is a devout Southern Baptist, working at her local church, and sometimes objects to Sheldon’s atheism. 

Lance Barber as George Cooper Sr: Sheldon, Missy, and Georgie’s father; a Vietnam veteran; and the head football coach at Medford High. George does not share Sheldon’s intellect which sometimes leads others, especially Meemaw, to doubt his genetic relationship with Sheldon. 

Montana Jordan as George “Georgie” Cooper Jr: Sheldon and Missy’s older brother. Georgie resents the attention his parents pay to Sheldon. He does not do well at school and gets mocked and teased for it by the rest of the family, particularly Sheldon and Meemaw. 

Raegan Revord as Melissa “Missy” Cooper: Georgie’s younger sister, and Sheldon’s fraternal younger twin sister. She teases Sheldon along with Georgie, but not as much. She does not share Sheldon’s intelligence but is very perceptive. 

Annie Potts as Constance “Connie” Tucker: Sheldon, Missy, and Georgie’s maternal grandmother, whom they refer to as “Meemaw”. She is a fun-loving woman who can be sarcastic, and often mocks those around her, especially George. 

Matt Hobby as Pastor Jeff Difford: as the upbeat pastor at the Cooper family’s Baptist church. Like Mary, he too sometimes has friction with Sheldon’s irreligious side and often challenges Sheldon to explore their line of thought through logic exercises.

Wyatt McClure as Billy Sparks: the son of a neighbor to the Cooper family, whom his mother implies is in no danger of going to college. He was originally portrayed as Sheldon’s nemesis but becomes much friendlier early in the series. He has an unrequited crush on Missy.
