Yesterday we waved a fond farewell to the amazing actress Estelle Getty. She was 84 years old and had been suffering from dementia. As a veteran actress she will probably be remembered most for her role of Sophia The Golden Girls. Her character really was a hoot, and had the ability to hold your attention and command a wide variety of emotions. The Golden Girls was an international success and she had several spin off series, playing the same role including The Golden Palace and Empty Nest.
Estelle was in many other things including my personal favorites Mannequin, The Mask and Stop or my mom will shoot. She will be missed and I have to admit it made me sad to think that she had gone. She really was an inspiration and her work is still as funny today as when it was originally aired. Apparently The Golden Girls box set is now available and I think I will be treating myself to it in the not too distant future.
In a way I have to agree with Rue McClanahan when she said, "Don't be sad at her passing, She will always be with us in her crowning achievement as Sophia".
See ya Stelle xx
