 Movies, TV Shows / Career

Comedic Actress White got her working as an assistant at a local television station. In the early 1950s, she launched her first television series, Life with Elizabeth, which she developed with George Tibbles. “He wrote and I produced,” White explained to The Hollywood Reporter. “I was one of the first women producers in Hollywood.” The show’s premise came from a sketch she had done previously on local television.

White’s career received an enormous boost from her next television series, The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Playing Sue Ann Nivens, White showed audiences that behind her sweet smile lay a sharp wit. Her character served as a co-worker to the show’s star, Mary Tyler Moore, in a Minneapolis television newsroom. When she wasn’t pursuing her male colleagues, Sue Ann could be counted on to make funny, yet poignant, quips at Moore’s expense. White won two Emmy Awards for her work on the series.

In sharp contrast to her Sue Ann character, White played the sweet and naive Rose Nylund on the popular 1980s sitcom The Golden Girls, along with co-stars Rue McClanahan, Bea Arthur, and Estelle Getty. The show looked at the lives of four, elderly, female friends, and its success proved that there was an audience for programs featuring older characters. The series landed among the top-ranked shows during its seven seasons on the air, and it won numerous awards, including another Emmy Award for White.

Some unknown facts about

 

  • As a child, Betty used to go to The Sierra Nevada for family vacations that gave rise to her interest in the wildlife.
  • Growing up, she aspired to become a forest ranger but at the time women were not allowed to become rangers and so this remained a far fetched dream for her.
  • After giving up on her dream of becoming a ranger, she inclined towards writing and wrote and played the lead in a graduation play in school, she discovered her fascination towards acting and decided to take acting as a career.
  • Her television career began in 1939, just 3 months after graduating from high school when she got a chance to sing songs along with her classmates from The Merry Widow on an experimental Los Angeles TV channel.
  • She later got professional acting and modeling job at the Bliss Hayden Little Theatre.
  • In 1939, World War II broke out, due to which Betty decided to put her career on hold and volunteer for the American Women’s Voluntary Services she would help in the transportation of military supplies through California. She also took part in events and activities held before the troops were sent overseas.
  • When the war ended in 1945, she began looking for the auditions once again but was always denied as all the studios claimed that she was unphotogenic. Fed up from this, she began looking for radio jobs where photos were not required.
  • The initial jobs she got were reading commercials and playing bit parts. She also sometimes did crowd noises and earned $5 per show.
  • For quite some time, she worked desperately and even did bits for free. Some of the shows she appeared on included Blondie, The Great Gildersleeve, and This is Your FBI. It was after this struggle that she finally got a show of her own. She then got her own radio show, called The Betty White Show.
