Despite the fact that the star of 1883 is only 21 years old, the career of the young actress Sheldon Isabel May since 2018 covers both large and small screens.

The role of Isabel May in “Young Sheldon” — “Who was Veronica?”
Isabel May’s career may have really started with the role of Veronica. Veronica was originally introduced as a hell-raising love interest that Georgie pursued throughout seasons 2 and 3 of Young Sheldon. At first, Veronica was portrayed as drinking and smoking, a bad influence on Georgie, but as the season of “Young Sheldon” 2 showed more of the character of Isabel May, Veronica became much softer in the sitcom. Veronica from May made a complete 180-degree turn in terms of character when she found God and dedicated her life to Jesus, which eventually led (albeit indirectly) to Georgie’s breakup with her. The couple realized that they were no longer working when Veronica became interested in religion more than their relationship, as a result of which the couple broke up in the third season of “Young Sheldon”. Since then, Veronica has not been seen, and although some fans of “Young Sheldon” claim May’s character, the success of the actress means that she will no longer be able to return to the spin-off “The Big Bang Theory”.
