According to PinkNews, Parsons is the highest-paid openly gay actor. He earns an estimated $1 million per episode.In 2014, despite prodding from Ellen DeGeneres on her show, Parsons demurred on the topic of marriage."I don't know. That's a hard one," he said. "You get used to your life as it is."Two years prior, Parsons came out publicly in a New York Times profile.Parsons' character is set to star in his own show. According to CBS, the spinoff, Young Sheldon, will follow 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper, played by newcomer Iain Armitage, as the child prodigy navigates his young life in east Texas.
Parsons will still play a role in the new show, narrating the comedy as adult Sheldon.
