‘The Big Bang Theory’ Pays Sweetest Tribute To Stephen Hawking In Deleted Scene
Luckily for fans, the hit CBS sitcom has now released the unaired clip online. But be warned, it’s a real tear-jerker. (Spoilers ahead.)
The deleted scene takes place after the couple’s nuptials. Emotions run high as the newlyweds unwrap a gift from Hawking, an engraved pocket watch that the scientist ― who guest-starred on the show ― sent them before he died at age 76 in March.
Hamill described the scene as a “lovely, touching (& funny) tribute” to the iconic scientist:
“The wedding was a big episode and it seemed like a good chance to pay some tribute to him,” Holland said.
The unaired scene stirred many emotions on Twitter:
Awwww The world should see this clip! It’s the best! I’m so happy you remembered & honored Stephen!!! ♥️
