PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. -- A B.C. woman who's a big fan of the hit TV show The Big Bang Theory got a real bang of her own when a doll she made of one of the show's characters appeared on TV.

Jackie Laing of Dawson Creek made a crochet doll of Jim Parsons in his character as Sheldon Cooper, the oddball star of the sitcom about four nerdy friends in California.

"The Big Bang Theory is my favourite show and he's my favourite character," she said. "(I like) his quirkiness -- just his character."

Laing sent Parsons the doll, which is decked out in the Flash T-shirt and jeans that Parsons frequently wears on the show.

She was excited just to get an e-mail picture from Parsons showing him holding the doll, but then Parsons took the doll along with him when he appeared as a guest on Conan O'Brien's talk show Dec. 5.

"I think it's the cutest thing in the world," Parsons told O'Brien, mentioning Jackie's name.

"I was in shock," Laing said. "I was really excited." She was so overcome she cried when she first saw the doll on television.

People who she didn't know have seen the doll and asked her if she would make some copies they could buy. But Laing said she's too busy with other projects and instead has posted the design online for anyone wishing to create their own Sheldon doll.
