KID TALK FROM ... Iain Ar­mitage

WHO - - Back Chat -

The 9-year-old ac­tor, who played Ziggy Chap­man in Big Lit­tle Lies, tells WHO’S Deb­o­rah Grun­feld about his se­ries Young Sheldon (Mon­days at 7.30 PM on Nine).

Are you sim­i­lar to Sheldon? I am like him be­cause we are both pas­sion­ate about the things we like, but I am not nearly as smart as he is. Also, I think he finds it dif­fi­cult to un­der­stand peo­ple and I re­ally love be­ing around peo­ple. Did Big Bang The­ory’s Jim Par­sons give you any ad­vice? Mr Jim was very help­ful and he is the world’s great­est Sheldon expert. [His help] was great. Are you good at bow ties? I love wear­ing bow ties, but I wear the ones that are pre-tied.

I also love wear­ing ties, and I can tie my own. I am work­ing on learn­ing dif­fer­ent knots. I don’t have a lot of in­put on my clothes, but I like that Sheldon dresses up a lit­tle more than most peo­ple be­cause I like to do that, too. How are you do­ing at school? I am learn­ing a lot of new vo­cab­u­lary words.

Ar­mitage por­trays Big Bang The­ory’s res­i­dent know-itall, Sheldon Cooper, as a tyke.

With brother Ge­orgie (Mon­tana Jor­dan) and grownup Sheldon (Jim Par­sons, right).
