American actress and comedian who is of ¼ Greek descent, Betty White will star in an untitled Christmas movie on American cable channel Lifetime later this year, according to Entertainment Tonight.
The 98-year-old iconic TV actress shows no sign of slowing down, as her character in the film “helps whip would-be Santas into shape, spreading the true meaning of Christmas,” and her work as a Santa whisperer leads everyone to wonder if she’s secretly Mrs. Claus, according to ET.
Lifetime said its holiday movies are all in various stages in production, despite the fact that the coronavirus pandemic has halted TV and film production.
In January, the eight-time Emmy winner turned 98!
The actress has made countless appearances in films and on television, but is memorably famous for playing Rose Nylund in ‘The Golden Girls’, Sue Ann Nevins on ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show’ and her most recent character Elka Ostrovsky on ‘Hot in Cleveland’.
In 1995 she was also inducted into the Television Hall of Fame. Not to mention as of 2013, she holds the Guinness World Records for the longest television career for a female entertainer.
The holiday movies are set to begin premiering on Lifetime on October 25, so fans will have to patiently wait till then to see White on-screen again, or they could binge watch the films and tv series she stars in.
