Golden Girls Dorothy was actually OLDER than Sophia

You remember the Golden Girls, right?

Well, picture it, Sicily, 1942, something happened to Sophia 🙂

Sophia was Dorothy’s mother in the show. The cute little old lady.

Here are the facts:

Dorothy, played by Beatrice “Bea” Arthur (May 13, 1922 – April 25, 2009)

Sophia, played by Estelle Getty (July 25, 1923 – July 22, 2008)

Take a look at those dates… “Sophia” was born in 1923 and “Dorothy” was born in 1922!
