Carol Ann Susi Dead - 'Big Bang Theory' Actress Dies at 62

Carol Ann Susi, who is best known for her unseen role as Mrs. Wolowitz on The Big Bang Theory, has passed away at 62.

The veteran character actress died after a brief battle with an aggressive cancer, her reps confirmed in a statement released on Tuesday evening (November 11).

Carol Ann has made dozens of guest appearances on television shows over the years, including Ugly Betty, Cheers, Seinfeld, Six Feet Under, and more.

Here is a statement from Warner Bros. Television, CBS, and The Big Bang Theory‘s team of executive producers: “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.”

We send out our thoughts and condolences to Carol Ann‘s friends and family during this difficult time.
