Mayim Bialik Visits Dad's Grave Before Emmys

Actress Mayim Bialik visited the grave of her father before the Emmy Awards ceremony.

Bialik, plays Amy Farrah Fowler on the popular sitcom “The Big Bang Theory,” told People magazine in an article published on the magazine’s website Sunday that she would visit the grave of her father Barry, who died in April, because it is traditional to visit loved ones’ graves on the Sunday between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards was held Sunday evening at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and was hosted by Adam Samberg.

“The Sunday in between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is the day to visit graves, so before the Emmys that’s where I’ll be,” Bialik told People. “But it’s really nice because it gives perspective for everything we’re doing. There are things so much bigger than anything that goes on [with the Emmys].”

She said she would visit the grave with her mother, her children and her ex-husband.

Bialik received her fourth Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, but did not take home the award.
