Estelle Getty July 25, 1923 - July 22, 2008. I will always remember her as Sophia. I used to want to have a relationship with my mother like her character and daughter had.
Part 3 of 4: Estelle Getty aka Sophia Petrillo. Sophia is best known for her wisecracks, put-downs and brazen remarks, often commenting on Dorothy's lack of love life, Blanche's promiscuity, and Rose's cluelessness. "Dorothy: Ma I do not snore. Sophia Petrillo: Please I had to roll you over so you wouldn't inhale the drapes."
