“Don’t be afraid to let people know what it is you want to do with your life. Don’t be hesitant. Be confident.”
A son of a Marine, Regis Philbin served in the Marines during the Korean War – he credits another Marine for giving him the push he needed to pursue show business. He started in a prop department, rising through the ranks to set the Guinness World Record for the most hours on camera. He passed away at age 88.
