每日英語跟讀 Ep.K297: About Hollywood - ‘Golden Girl’ Betty White dies before her 100th birthday

Fans worldwide lost their TV sweetheart on Dec. 31, as legendary actress Betty White died at the age of 99 — just 17 days before what would have been her 100th birthday next Monday. White began her career in the late 1930s, and with a glorious run spanning over eight decades, held the Guinness World Record for longest TV career for a female.

全球影迷近日痛失電視老甜心!傳奇美國女星貝蒂懷特十二月三十一日過世,享年九十九歲——距離她下週一的百歲生日只差十七天。懷特在一九三○年代末期出道,精彩的演藝生涯橫跨八十多年,更是《金氏世界紀錄》最長電視生涯女性保持人。

White gained international fame for her role as “Rose” on “The Golden Girls,” a hit US sitcom aired between 1985 and 1992, and also won the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Emmys in 2015. “My 100th birthday. . . I cannot believe it is coming up, and People Magazine is celebrating with me!” she twitted excitedly just three days before she died.

懷特因飾演熱門情境喜劇《黃金女郎》裡的「羅絲」聲名大噪,該劇在一九八五年至一九九二年播出,她還曾在二○一五年,獲頒艾美獎終身成就獎之殊榮。她在死前三天興奮地發推特說:「我的百歲生日…真不敢相信就要到了,而且《時人》雜誌要與我一起慶祝!」

“The Golden Girls” was about four older women sharing a home in Miami. In addition to White, the show featured Bea Arthur as “Dorothy,” Rue McClanahan as “Blanche” and Estelle Getty as “Sophia.” All four actresses have now passed away.

而《黃金女郎》這部影集,則是關於四位年長女性在邁阿密同居的趣事。除了懷特以外,還包括碧雅阿瑟飾演「桃樂絲」、露麥克連納罕飾演「白蘭琪」、艾絲特蓋提飾演「蘇菲亞」,可惜四位女主角均已相繼離世。Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2022/01/12/2003771170

Cast celebrates 20th anniversary of ‘Harry Potter’ film series 《哈利波特》系列20週年 重返霍格華茲

The “Harry Potter” film series that consists of eight blockbusters has swept the world since the release of its first movie in 2001. To celebrate the series’ 20th anniversary, HBO launched a show titled “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts” on New Year’s Day, as the lead actors and filmmakers were reunited.

熱門電影《哈利波特》系列總共拍了八部,自首部電影二○○一年上映以來便席捲全球。為了慶祝該系列問世二十周年,HBO於元旦製播特別節目《哈利波特二十周年:重返霍格華茲》,邀請主角與製片再度重聚一堂。

The series featuring Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and a dozen big stars is undoubtedly one of the most successful movie franchise of all time, grossing as much as over US$7.7 billion (NT$213.3 billion). The show featured the cast reminiscing about the movies as well as festivities in the Great Hall of “Hogwarts” — a fictional wizarding school where all the magic happens.

該系列的主角包括「哈利」丹尼爾雷德克里夫、「榮恩」魯伯特葛林特、「妙麗」艾瑪華森及多位大牌明星,在全球狂賣超過七十七億美元(約兩千一百多億台幣),是史上最賣座的電影系列之一!大團圓特輯中,除了主角回顧當年拍片的部分,還有在「霍格華茲」大廳舉行的節慶活動——而這座虛構的魔法學院正是奇蹟發生的地方。

As the magic fever continues globally, fans are excited about the opening of the world’s fourth “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal Studios Beijing in September last year. The other three theme parks are located in Orlando, Osaka and Hollywood, respectively.

隨著這股魔法的熱潮持續延燒,全球第四座「哈利波特的魔法世界」主題樂園於去年九月,已在北京環球度假區盛大開幕,令所有影迷相當興奮。其它三座魔法主題樂園則分別位於奧蘭多、大阪、好萊塢。Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2022/01/05/2003770726
