Parsons is best known for playing Sheldon Cooper on CBS The Big Bang Theory. He thought now would be a good time to share his experience with the disease.

"Not everybody did [know we had it], but I figure why not talk about it with you on television?" he said to Fallon.

"My only hesitation doing the film was that we had such a wonderful time doing the play, and it was such a golden experience for me that I anxious about tarnishing it by revisiting it", Parsons said.

"I think the strangest part for me was, right before the category was announced. they threw all the nominees into a virtual waiting room where. we can all kind of chat", Parsons recalled. I was saying earlier, we had an entire episode, which I didn't think about until recently, where he did, like, a Shell-bot where he had a video screen on a remote control wheelie thing.

"And then it seemed less likely and then finally we lost our sense of smell and taste ... utterly", Jim said when he realized it was not a cold.

He added: "It defied the descriptions for me". For me, I didn't understand how totally taste and smell could be gone. When Fallon asked if it was brutal because he did not feel like eating anything and that everything for him was "gross", Parsons revealed that he still "ate everything" even though he could not taste anything. The admission made Fallon laugh.

"It was the definition of wasted calories", he joked. I took a painting class for a while, I took a creative writing class for a while, and everything petered out.

Jim Parsons further included, "I attempted other innovative outlets on the grounds that the acting, clearly wasn't going on, and I took a composition class for some time, I took".

Jim Parsons revealed, Sheldon - his character in The Big Bang Theory, was always ready for such a moment. He could not go to a salon given he and Spiewak were on quarantine.

As of late, The Big Bang Story star Jim Parsons has opened up about being determined to have the lethal infection prior in March. "It's sort of embarrassing, but, you know, here I am", he said.
