For a brief period, before he was tearing it up on incredible HBO shows such as Barry and Succession, seasoned actor Stephen Root had a role on The Big Bang Theory as Dan, a guy who interviews Penny for a sales representative position at Bernadette’s pharmaceutical company. Dan confesses that he is terrified of Bernadette.
Stephen has played multiple roles but is most recognized for his parts in films Office Space and Dodgeball. In 2008, he got married to Romy Rosemont, who is also an actor. She is recognized for her roles on Glee where she played Finn’s mother and most recently, for a series called Beyond.
Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting
Kaley Cuoco got a lot of media attention when she got engaged to former professional tennis player, Ryan Sweeting after only three months of dating. Apparently, Cuoco was very sure that she found the one. Kaley had said, “From day one I just knew immediately and it’s been magic.”
However, it seems that she was a little off in her estimation. The two got married in 2013 but contrary to Kaley’s previous confidence about the relationship, the two divorced after just two years. There were rumors spreading of divorce three months before they broke up, but Cuoco denied such a thing.
Kaley Cuoco and Christopher French
There have been a string of famous faces that Kaley Cuoco has been linked with outside of marriage. For example, she dated Christopher French, a founder of the LA-based band Annie Automatic from 2011-2012. He has composed music for a few series such as Young & Hungry and Life Flight as well.
They looked pretty happy in the photo above, but ultimately, it was a brief romance. Christopher French is now married to Ashley Tisdale (from the High School Musical movies), whom he met in 2014. He proposed to her on the top of the Empire State Building. The musical duo got married in 2014.
Brian Patrick Wade and Jill Wade
It's indeed a nostalgic surprise! Brian Patrick Wade, known for his portrayal of Kurt, Penny's ex-boyfriend in the early episodes of season 1, left quite an impression when he hilariously swiped Leonard and Sheldon's pants. Following his stint on The Big Bang Theory, Wade continued to showcase his talent in popular shows such as NCIS and CSI.
However, his professional success is not the only highlight of his life. For over a decade, he has been happily married to Jill, a remarkable bodybuilder and fitness enthusiast. With their shared passion for fitness, one can imagine the couple engaging in exhilarating workouts together, sculpting their bodies and fostering a harmonious bond.
Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook
