"Howard!" It was one word but it conveyed so much when Carol Ann Susi yelled it.

The actress, who played Mrs. Wolowitz on the hit CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory, died on Tuesday after a brief battle with an aggressive cancer. She was 62.

While viewers never saw her face on the show, Susi was nevertheless a strong presence, giving a loud voice to Howard's (Simon Helberg) larger-than-life, domineering mother.

It usually starts with a simple question: How did you spend your summer?

Faster than you can bust out a Bazinga, details are shared in gleeful progression: Jim Parsons (Sheldon) became a Wimbledon groupie. Simon Helberg (Howard) nested at home with his second baby. Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) produced her first movie.

They're on the biggest show on TV, but the stars of The Big Bang Theory say neither fame nor their new, http://www.people.com/article/big-bang-theory-salary-negotiation-kaley-cuoco have changed them.

"Everybody's got their feet on the ground, so it doesn't feel that much different than day one," star Simon Helberg, 33, tells PEOPLE in its new issue, on newsstands Friday.

The picture of Cuoco (who is reportedly among those who were hacked) and her husband Ryan Sweeting shows her breasts and his crotch blurred out. Appropriately enough, she's also holding what appears to be an iPhone.
