The show came to its bittersweet end last year in an episode which tied up a number of loose ends for fans.
Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) was granted a Nobel Prize with his wife Amy (Mayim Bialik) after years of hard work.
Leonard (Jonny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) discovered they were expecting a baby and the show came to a rather satisfying close.
Many fans were emotional at the series ending after such a long time and now one star has brought back those feelings to mark a year since filming wrapped up.

This picture was taken exactly one year ago. Our last taping of tbbt, also happened to be my birthday. As I reflect on this year, it has been one of change. But not all change is bad, for the greatest experience to come out of all the uncertainty and the turmoil has been — the realization that nothing is promised; and that has given me a sense of deep profound inner peace. Because at the end of the day, all is precious, all is precious, all is precious. This birthday my only wish is for one moment today, tell someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time, that you love them. And if they look confused, just say “It’s Kunal’s birthday, this is his present…” For even if one of you did this, it would be a great birthday for me, indeed:) I love you.

A fifth joked: “Just wondering..never had time to fix the elevator??”
Fans of the long-running series know it featured a broken elevator throughout which was finally fixed during the last episode.
Kunal’s character had a turbulent time leading up to the show’s end after he decided to end his engagement to Anu (Rati Gupta) following her decision to move to London.
Some viewers were frustrated Raj never got his shot at romance but he did get to sit alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar at the awards ceremony in the finale, so it wasn’t all bad.
