Henry Franklin Winkler the actor was born on 30 October, 1945, in Manhattan, city of New York. His biological parents, Anna Maria and Harry Winkler, were of Jewish origin who avoided strictly the German Holocaust, migrating to the US early in 1939. His dad was the international lumber company’s president whereas his mother worked together with his father.

Henry grew up possessing “a low level of self-esteem.” Throughout his elementary and high school level, he struggled with most of his academics. This was because of what he would identify later as dyslexia. His folks expected him to sooner or later work at the lumber firm with them. However, Henry Franklin had other ideas in mind as he saw different roles on stage performing as the main key to his personal happiness. His acting initial debut came in his eighth grade where he played Billy Budd role in the school annual play of that same name.

Following his graduation from the McBurney High School, Henry was able to easily incorporate his learning knowledge and succeed in his higher education. He got his Bachelor’s degree from College of Emerson in 1967 as well as a Fine Arts Master degree from Yale Drama School in 1970. He received an honorary PhD in the field of Hebrew Literature in late 1978 from that same college.

Following college, his first priority was to be an actor. However, in case this was unsuccessful, Henry wanted to be a child psychologist due to his deep interest and love in working with kids. Like many other professions in the acting field, he began his profession by appearing in over 30 commercials. His initial major film acting role was with ‘The Lords of Flatbush’ (1974) in which he acted as a member of some Brooklyn gang.

After that, he acted on another ABC series which was set in the 1950s called Happy Days (1974). He was given the part of secondary school dropout greaser Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzarelli. The character was at times seen amid the initial couple of scenes as ABC at first dreaded he would be seen as a gangster. In any case, the character turned out to be to a great degree role prevalent with viewers, and the show’s makers chose to give Fonzie a more unmistakable part in the series.

Tailing this, the show’s appraisals started to take off, and Fonzie turned into a 1970s symbol and the exemplification of a cool life style. His bike, calfskin coat, thumbs-up signal, and articulating of the expression “Aayyyy!” got to be TV trademarks. The character turned out to be popular to the point that ABC considered renaming the series “Fonzie’s Happy Days” yet in the long run ruled against it.

Different to numerous stars of the 1970s that rose to popularity in a brief timeframe and grew “enormous heads,” Henry figured out how to stay very much grounded and abstained from falling into this trap. He was said to be more affable and pleasant, even after his fame took off. He stayed on the series until its cancelation in 1984.

In the mid-1980s, with his Happy Days (1974) now behind him, Henry chose to change his center role to producing and directing. He produced and directed a few network shows and motion pictures, most prominently MacGyver (1985) and Sabrina, and the Teenage Witch (1996). In the mid-1990s and mid2000s, he could re-set up himself with a more youthful era of moviegoers and TV viewers, showing up in the mainstream movies, Scream (1996) and The Water kid (1998) and on shows, for example, The Practice (1997) and Arrested Development (2003).

Despite his motion picture and film awards, Henry is a very much proficient producer. Somewhere around 2003 and 2007, he co-composed 12 kids’ books with Lin Oliver. The series is called “Hank Zipzer, the World’s Greatest Underachiever.” The books depend on his initial battles with dyslexia, and they sold more than 2-million copies in that time. Off-screen, Henry has been married to Stacey Winkler (nee Weitzman) with whom he had three kids. In 1990, they helped establish the Children’s Action Network (CAN), which gives free vaccination to more than 200,000 kids. He works also with the Annual Cerebral Palsy Telethon, the Epilepsy Foundation of America, the yearly Toys for Tots battle, the National Committee for Arts for the Handicapped, and the Special Olympics.

In September 2003, he endured a personal mishap when his kindred performing artist and companion of almost 25 years, John Ritter, out of the blue passed away. Henry was on the series of 8 Simple Rules (2002) that day for a visitor appearance and was one of the last individuals to converse with Ritter.
