Betty Lynn – 94 Years Old
Betty Lynn is one of the few actresses from the Golden Age of Hollywood who is still alive today. Nonetheless, she is living a quiet life of retirement in Mount Airy, North Carolina, which is ironically the birthplace of the iconic Andy Griffith, with whom Lynn starred alongside within The Andy Griffith Show. Before landing the role of Thelma Lou, Barney Fife’s girlfriend on the show, the retired actress started her career on radio. Prior to that, the singer-actress toured with the entertainment group of the USO (United Service Organization), performing in the ‘China Burma India Theater’ in war-affected countries. Lynn was also offered acting project sin movies and was even cast along with Hollywood legend Bette Davis in the movie June Bride. Once a month, the 94-year-old Lynn still visits the Andy Griffith Museum to sign autographs for fans of the show.
