Henry Winkler is a $40 million dollar actor, director, producer, and author from the United States. Henry Winkler is best known for his role as The Fonz in the comedy “Happy Days.” He’s also a successful children’s book author and has been in various films and television shows throughout the years.
Henry Franklin Winkler was born in Manhattan, New York City, on October 30, 1945. His mother, Ilse Anna Marie (née Hadra), was a stay-at-home mom, while his father, Harry Irving Winkler, was a lumber importer and exporter. Richard Belzer, his cousin, is also an actor and has a sister named Beatrice. Winkler was born in Berlin to German Jewish parents. They arrived in the United States in 1939, just before World War II broke out. Due to his dyslexia (which was misdiagnosed at the time), he struggled through school and only graduated from McBurney School on Manhattan’s Upper West Side in 1963 after finishing summer school. He moved on to Emerson College, where he received a BA in 1967, and the Yale School of Drama, where he received an MFA in 1970.
Winkler claims his first paid television job was as a $10 game show extra in New York. In New York, he supported himself by working in television advertisements and playing at the Manhattan Theater Club for free. From 1968 to 1972, he appeared in many Yale Repertory Theater performances. Included in this list are “Coriolanus” (May 1968), “Macbeth” (February 1971), “Gimpel the Fool” (October 1970), and “Two by Brecht and Weill: The Little Mahagonny and the Seven Sins” (May-June 1971, January 1972)
In the 1973 drama film “The Lords of Flatbush,” Winkler played Butchey Weinstein. Perry King and Sylvester Stallone also starred. But the movie came out in 1974. In 1973, he featured on “Rhoda”, “The Bob Newhart Show”, and “The Mary Tyler Moor Show”. In 1973, Winkler landed the role of Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli, aka “The Fonz” or “Fonzie”, on the comedy “Happy Days”. “Happy Days” premiered in January 1974 and helped Winkler gain stardom. He stayed on as The Fonz until 1984. He starred in films like “Heroes” (1977), “The One and Only” (1978), and “An American Christmas Carol” (1985). (1979).
After taking a hiatus from acting in the 1980s, Winkler progressively returned in the 1990s. “Absolute Strangers” (1991) and “One Christmas” (1994) were both made for television. In 1994, he returned to television in “Monty” on Fox. But “Monty” only lasted six episodes and was quickly cancelled. Then Adam Sandler asked him to be in his film “The Waterboy” (1998), launching a friendship and professional partnership. Then came “Little Nicky” (2000), “Click” (2006), and “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan” (2008). (2008).
