Love, Laughter, and Parenting: Lance and Wife Aliza Barber’s Tale

The on-screen father shares similar role in real life!

Los Angeles, California: Lance Barber, best known as George Cooper Sr. on the sitcom “Young Sheldon,” slowly became an ideal father figure, the opposite of what was said in “The Big Bang Theory.”

Nonetheless, the wholesome character had to see his end, which will be featured in season 7, episode 13 and 14 on May 16.

We all knew it was bound to happen, but man, we weren’t ready for it!

Key Takeaways

  • George Cooper Sr., played by the actor Lance Barber, will meet his end as the sitcom is about to take a heartbreaking turn.
  • Similar to his role, Lance is a married man in real life, raising two kids, a son, Arlen, and a daughter, Edie, with his wife, Aliza Barber.
  • The Barber family is highly private and prefers to stay out of the limelight.

A Family Man In-and-Out

Identical to the character, the actor is also a doting father of two kids with his wife, Aliza Barber.

His eldest son, Arlen (born in 2008), is the same age as young Sheldon. Likewise, his youngest is daughter Edie (born in 2011).

The family of four resides in Los Angeles, where Aliza works as a chef.

Aliza is extremely private and isn’t active on social media, but you can see a glimpse of her on Barber’s mother’s inactive Facebook page.

The Battle Creek, Michigan native is proud of his accomplishments and stated,

“This is what I’m doing, and this is what I want to continue doing.”

Even though he is now successful, while he was coming up, the actor discussed in a 2014 interview about the challenges of raising his kids in a different city,

My wife and I talk about raising our kids in a different town than Los Angeles, but if we ever did move, I’d remain somehow in some aspect of show business because I love it. And because I have no other skills.”
