Ep 12: justsaying with Iain Armitage – Young Sheldon

The fourth season of Young Sheldon returns to Warner TV. In this season, after graduating high school, Sheldon has a breakdown when he realizes he may not be ready for college.

Young Sheldon stars Iain Armitage plays the once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science in a land where church and football are king.

Iain burst on the acting scene, at the age of 7, when he made his acting debut playing the role of “Ziggy Chapman” on the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning HBO limited series Big Little Lies, based on the best-selling novel by Liane Moriarty.

He has also appeared in the Netflix feature Our Souls at Night, opposite Jane Fonda and Robert Redford, the independent feature I’m Not Here, with J.K Simmons, and The Glass Castle, for Lionsgate with Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts.

We catch up with Iain and have a chat about the latest season of Young Sheldon:

The cast of Young Sheldon includes George (Lance Barber), a high school football coach and father to a boy (Sheldon) he doesn’t understand. Sheldon’s mother, Mary (Zoe Perry), who fiercely protectis and nurtures her son in a town where he just doesn’t fit in. Sheldon’s older brother, Georgie (Montana Jordan), does the best he can in high school, but it’s tough to be cool when you’re in the same classes with your odd younger brother.

Sheldon’s twin sister, Missy (Raegan Revord), who sometimes resents all the attention Sheldon gets, but also remains the one person who can reliably tell Sheldon the truth. Finally, there’s Sheldon’s beloved Meemaw (Annie Potts), the foul-mouthed, hard-drinking Texas grandmother who is very supportive of her grandson and his unique gifts.

Created by Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory, Mom, Mike & Molly) and Steven Molaro (The Big Bang Theory, The Class), Young Sheldon is executive produced by Lorre, Molaro, Steve Holland, Jim Parsons and Todd Spiewak.

New episodes of Young Sheldon Season 4  premiere every Friday on Warner TV (Starhub TV: 515, Singtel TV: 306).
