Betty White

Age: 88
Occupation: Actress
Previous TIME 100 Appearances: 0

Two decades after winning over audiences as spacey Golden Girl Rose Nylund, White has made a triumphant return to TV. The Emmy-winning actress stole the show in one of this year's best Super Bowl ads (for Snickers), then rode an online fan campaign to win a slot hosting Saturday Night Live, scheduled for May 8. Now she's set to star as a "snarky but lovable" property caretaker in a TV Land sitcom, Hot in Cleveland, that is set to premiere in June.
