Still Kicking: Celebrities Now Living In Their Golden Years

Performing is an art that people have mastered for years now. Way before the first investments in TVs and cinema were even made, many of us already had a knack for telling stories. Not just with words, though, but also with actions. Since then, it has found its way to various mediums, notably the stage, cinema, and TV.

Now the interesting thing about having a career as a performer is that there is no designated retirement date. Actors can start as a child and keep on working even until they’re already well into their 90s. After all, there is always time to be a performer, no matter what one’s age. Well, for today’s article, we will be talking about many of the entertainment industry’s celebrities who are still alive and well, living through their golden years. While some have already traded the spotlight for a more low-key lifestyle, many are still quite active in the entertainment industry. Now then, without further ado, let’s get on with the article, shall we?

Alan Alda | Born: 1936

For his introduction to acting, Alan Alda undoubtedly has his father to thank. Throughout childhood, he and his mother would often attend and support his father’s work performing in theaters. By the time he was studying for his Bachelor of Arts degree, the actor had dabbled in a couple of extracurricular activities, notably performing in a play and appearing on TV.

Like many of his colleagues, Alda started his professional career as a stage actor. Performing with the improvisational comedy group the Compass Players, he acted on productions such as Heaven Come Wednesday, Job, and To Dorothy a Son. In retrospect, though, it’s safe to say he is most known for his performance as Hawkeye Pierce on the TV series MASH. With that said, he has also worked on other projects, including 30 Rock, The West Wing, and Marriage Story, with his most recent outing being on the show Ray Donovan.
