* The late Jerry Orbach. Even though his character, [[Series/LawAndOrder Lenny Briscoe]], was a DeadpanSnarker, he on the other hand was a warm, friendly family man and gentleman who was so respected that real-life police officers would give him a ride to wherever he needed to go. Even moreso, given his [[EnsembleDarkhorse popularity]] in many of his roles like Briscoe and [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Lumiere]] gave him [[RuleOfSeanConnery a certain appeal]] that audiences still love.

** In ''[[VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn Dark Dawn]]'', not only has Kraden's aging been slowed to the point of {{Immortality}} (albeit the [[BlessedWithSuck rather unfortunate]] AgeWithoutYouth variety), but some of his MemeticBadass status has [[AscendedMeme leaked into the universe]], with multiple characters respecting him as a {{Determinator}} who will reach his destination regardless of the traps, monsters, and labyrinths in his way (and this is accurate; he travels ''through a war zone'' to join you!).

* Creator/ChristopherPlummer. He's been acting for around sixty years now, is charming, witty, a massive [[OneOfUs Trekkie]], and a phenomenal actor. He is the oldest person to have been nominated for an acting Oscar, as well as the oldest person to ''win'' an acting Oscar. His last nomination was for ''Film/AllTheMoneyInTheWorld'', which he completed filming for in mere days after Creator/KevinSpacey was sacked when the latter's history as a sexual predator came to light. Plummer also watches ''Series/GameOfThrones'', and is showing no signs of stopping.
