Helberg debuted in Lawrence Kasdan comedy “Mumford”. His role was so small, that he hadn’t even got a name. After that he appeared in “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch” and then acted in sketch comedy series “Mad TV”. Although Simon’s comic talent is indisputable, his first screen works were criticized. Producers of “Mad TV” fired the actor after 5 episodes, saying that “his work was awful”.
But Simon Helberg didn’t pay attention to criticism. He visited lots of auditions, spent a lot of time, rehearsing and developing his acting skills. And finally he got an offer he couldn’t refuse.
Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady were preparing their new project. At first they planned to create a story about young talented scientists Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) and Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki). But later they decided to add two more geek friends to the company – Raj Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar), who can’t speak in the presence of a beautiful woman, and Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg), who can speak different languages and lives with his mother.
Simon Helberg has become popular overnight after the premiere of “The Big Bang Theory” at CBS. He tells, he has a lot in common with his famous hero. But in his real life Simon is much more self-confident. He is married to an actress Jocelyn Towne and they bring up a son and a daughter.
Simon continues appearing in many new films and TV series, which add him kudos and zeroes to his bank account. In 2018 Simon Helberg tried his hand in screenwriting and directing. He made a film “We'll Never Have Paris” in cooperation with his wife and played the leading role there. Unfortunately, the film got mostly negative reviews.
