Los Angeles – The actress best known for voicing the unseen Mrs Wolowitz on the TV comedy The Big Bang Theory has died.

Carol Ann Susi’s agent, Pam Ellis-Evenas, said the actress died in Los Angeles yesterday after a brief battle with cancer. She was 62.

The veteran character actress has made numerous guest appearances on TV shows since the 1970s.

On the The Big Bang Theory, she wasn’t seen on camera as the mother of Simon Helberg’s character, Howard, but her character’s loud voice with a Brooklyn accent was instantly recognisable.

The executive producers of the CBS sitcom said Susi was a beloved member of the Big Bang Theory family, and they praised her “immense talent and comedic timing”.

Susi is survived by her brother, Michael Susi, and his wife, Connie.
