Actress Carol Ann Susi who voiced Mrs. Wolowitch on CBS’ wildly popular ‘The Big Bang Theory’ has passed away on Tuesday, November 11. The 62-year-old actress lost the battle with cancer, and will be sorely missed by fans of the show. Mrs. Wolowitz was one of the snappy and quick quipped characters that often appeared on the show at glimpses and only her voice can be heard. She was usually only heard when she had an altercation with her on-set-son Howard, played by Simon Helberg.
Warner Bros. Television and “Big Bang Theory” producers Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and Bill Prady said in a statement:
” ‘The Big Bang Theory’ family has lost a beloved member today with the passing of Carol Ann Susi, who hilariously and memorably voiced the role of Mrs. Wolowitz,” “Unseen by viewers, the Mrs. Wolowitz character became a bit of a mystery throughout the show’s eight seasons.” “What was not a mystery, however, was Carol Ann’s immense talent and comedic timing, which were on display during each unforgettable appearance. In addition to her talent, Carol Ann was a constant source of joy and kindness to all. Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with her family during this time, and we will miss her greatly,”
Rest in Peace – Carol Ann Susi (February 2, 1952 – November 11, 2014)
