In celebration of “Young Sheldon’s” 100th episode towards the close of Season 5, members of the cast spoke candidly with Entertainment Tonight about their experiences on the sitcom. Cast members Montana Jordan (Georgie), Annie Potts (Meemaw), Zoe Perry (Mary), Iain Armitage (Sheldon Cooper), and others shared details about the episode titled “A Solo Peanut, a Social Butterfly, and the Truth.” Some of the actors were then asked to summarize their experience with the program so far.
Montana Jordan expressed his gratitude for being on the comedy by saying, “I’m a very chill and down-to-earth guy so now I’m just kind of realizing the position I’m in… and I’m very thankful for it but… I grew up watching people grow up on TV. I’m not used to being on the other side of that and I’m from Texas. I’m a normal kid so it’s kind of crazy to be on the other side of growing up on TV. It’s wild.”
This runs counter to Jordan’s previous statement to CBS in 2021, where he said that he simply couldn’t watch himself on TV at the age of 13 when he started the show. His opinions on actually viewing the show have obviously changed, but not the surrealness of seeing himself mature, along with millions of others viewers.
