Betty White’s Relationship With The Golden Girls Cast Explained

Estelle Getty, who wowed audiences with her portrayal of Sophia Petrillo, Dorothy Zbornak’s mother, had never been on television before. Her background was Broadway, according to TV Guide, but she settled into the role. Betty White, a veteran actress, was more than happy to bring Getty into the fold. The two of them got along well and White would work with Getty, who got such bad stage fright during the taping of the show that she had to have Sophia’s lines on cue cards to keep her from forgetting, per Glamour. White also loved to hear Getty tell stories about being in the theater (via OK! Magazine). Television audiences never knew what went on behind the scenes, since the production was so polished. 

Ironically, Getty was the youngest of the four actresses (via Parade). She had to sit in a make-up chair to have herself become Sophia, the matriarch. White was the oldest, though Rose Nylund, her character, was the most child-like.
