John Mark Galecki (born April 30, 1975) is an American actor. He is known for playing Leonard Hofstadter in the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory since 2007 and David Healy in the ABC sitcom Roseanne from 1992 to 1997 and briefly reprised the role during its 2018 revival.
Galecki is one of the highest paid television actors in the world, with his role in The Big Bang Theory currently earning him approximately US$900,000 per episode between 2017 and 2019.
Galecki was born in Bree, Belgium, to American parents of Polish, Irish, and Italian descent. Galecki is the eldest of three children with a brother, Nick, whom he describes as a "mechanical genius" in the automotive industry, and a sister, Allison. Galecki grew up in Oak Park, Illinois.
While working on The Big Bang Theory, Galecki dated co-star Kaley Cuoco for about two years until December 2009 while the two also played a couple on the show. Cuoco told CBS Watch that they have remained on good terms since ending their relationship. Also, Galecki dated Sara Gilbert in the 1990s while their characters were a couple on Roseanne.
Galecki owns 360 acres (150 ha) of land in Santa Margarita, California. His property included vineyards and a log cabin. In late June 2017, Galecki's ranch was destroyed in a major wildfire known as the Hill Fire.
