PV Entertainment Desk : Betty White was US television’s Golden Girl with the heart of gold, celebrated for her comic acting abilities from TV’s early days up to the 21st Century, while remaining committed to her animal activism.

“I have to keep acting so that I can afford to keep doing my charity work!” she joked to The Hollywood Reporter in 2018.

Born in Illinois in 1922, White became one of America’s original screen stars, enjoying a career that encompassed eight decades and earned her many accolades.

As an only child, she moved with her family to Los Angeles during the height of The Great Depression, and in the late 1930s began working as an actress and model. Her fledgling career had to be put on hold, though, during the Second World War, when she went to work with the American Women’s Voluntary Services.
