The iconic comedian is 91-years-old, and he continues to defy his age. Last year, Newhart celebrated his 90th birthday in Las Vegas then he surfaced days later in L.A. at the Emmy Awards to perform a comedy segment with Ben Stiller.

This year, the renowned actor was celebrated by his "Big Bang Theory" co-star Johnny Galecki with a heartfelt birthday tribute on Instagram. Newhart first appeared during the show's sixth season as Arthur Jeffries, and then he reappeared for some guest appearances in subsequent seasons.
The iconic actress is 98-years-old and has achieved a career worthy of the envy and respect of many in the industry. The late comedian Joan Rivers even described White as her hero during her 80th birthday.
Rivers turned 80 on June 8, 2013, and she told sources that she felt inspired to accomplish more because of White. The late icon revealed that she met the actress on the show "Hot in Cleveland" and was impressed by how agile she was despite her age.
DICK VAN DYKE
In 2018, the renowned actor took the internet by storm with his appearance in "Mary Poppins Returns." Fans were shocked by how Dyke had barely changed since his role in the classic movie in 1964.
The actor previously played Mr. Dawes, and for the sequel, he acted as the son of Mr. Dawes. Dyke was 92 when he filmed "Mary Poppins Returns," but he performed a remarkable dance on top of the desk just as his character did in 1964.
