Big Bang Theory pays tribute to Carol Ann Susi
US sitcom “The Big Bang Theory” has paid tribute to cast member Carol Ann Susi, who died earlier this week from cancer. The actress provided the voice of Howard Wolowitz's unseen overbearing mother on the show.
The episode ended with a message honouring Susi, saying: “Every time you spoke, we laughed. You're in our hearts forever.”
Producers have yet to make a decision on how to proceed with Susi's character for the rest of the current series.
The character played by Susi was never seen on-screen, but she remained an integral part of the cast from the very beginning, as Mrs Wolowitz's loud Brooklyn accent became a distinctive presence on the award-winning show.
Character actress Susi started her career in the 1970s and made guest appearances on many well known shows including “Seinfeld”, “Married with Children”, “Ugly Betty” and “Grey's Anatomy”.
