Jim Parsons and J.K. Rowling.
There are two people alive today, who I really admire. One is Jim Parsons and the other is J.K. Rowling. They are both very famous, but one name will be more famous than the other, for even my Mum would have heard of her and Mum would definitely have not heard of the other.
To me, Jim Parsons it the funniest person alive bar none! He is Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory. I’ve watched the shows many times and even though I know the words that are going to be said I still laugh out loud. He is perfect for that role; without him the show just would not be. The writers have even made a Young Sheldon, but such nonsense I would not watch, for all they have done is copied jokes that have been done before, (yawn) from The Big Bang Theory, you can even see the old jokes been repeated in the newer series, which I don’t find funny at all.
Jim Parsons, earns around twenty-six and a half million dollars a year, he is the world’s highest paid television actor!
Now I did say, Jim Parsons is the funniest person alive bar none, but to me the funniest person that ever lived, is sadly no longer with us his name is Miles Kington, in his book Someone Like Me, tales from a borrowed childhood. Don’t take my word for it, prove me wrong by reading his book.
The other person who I admire a lot is J.K. Rowling, she doesn’t need any introduction, she is the writer of the Harry Potter books. I’ve never read any of the books, nor do I intend to, but I have had the films on at Christ mas day at home with my Husband and Children wanting to watch it, thankfully as it was dark in the room and warm, I fell asleep!
I admire her because, when she was unknown and poor, she was turned down many, many times, in fact twelve times, with her multimillion-dollar story. Her face was just another face in the crowd, no one looked at her twice, there are rumours that she was hurt by her first husband, physically.
After she because world famous, she became a billionaire, and then lost that status by giving a lot away to charities. She knew what it was like to be poor, and rich, she has not forgotten, her roots.
I admire her because she never gave up. I wonder how many people wanted to talk to her after she became famous who knew her before, but are too ashamed, because of the way they treated her.
